Our Frequently asked Questions
We are a bulk billing family practice. Simply walk-ins system. Patients can choose the tenant doctor they want to see or the first available tenant doctor. Emergency cases will have first priority. Longer consultations are available if needed. Please inform the reception beforehand.
Tenant Doctors in the Practice may be contacted during normal surgery hours. If the tenant doctor is with a patient a message will be taken and you will be advised by the receptionist when it is likely that the tenant doctor will return your call. Your call will always be put through to the tenant doctor in an emergency.
Whilst the Practice do have emails for internal correspondences and to other third parties such as insurance companies, other health professionals etc.. However the Practice email are NOT for patient’s to use for informing us about any medical conditions they are suffering from as the tenant doctor are unable to diagnose or treat without seeing the patient. There will be NO reply the email. It’s best to come in and see a tenant doctor.
Home Visits are available for regular patients of the Practice in exceptional cases only and are subject to the tenant doctor’s availability. Please call early in the day so a visit can be organised. The tenant doctor usually sees the patient before or after surgery, or at lunch time (1-2 pm). Standard Fee of $150.00 applies, however this is at the tenant doctor’s discretion.
