Fees & Billing

We are aiming to bring quality and comprehensiveness to our clinic, therefore our standard consult time is 15- 20 minutes, depending on the doctor you see. If you think you will require less or more time than this, please advise the reception staff at booking and they will adjust your consult time accordingly.

Certain consultations will attract a private fee for all patients e.g. driving licence medicals, employment medicals, dry needling appointments and hormone/compound prescription appointments with Dr McDonnell. Please check with reception at the time of booking.
