We have a booking system which will minimise waiting times. We need your help to ensure its success. To avoid delaying other patients we ask that you request longer consultations for procedures, women’s checks or should you feel you need longer with the doctor. If you are unsure if you need a longer appointment please ask our friendly reception staff. Emergencies are always given priority and our staff will attempt to contact you or inform you on your arrival if there is an unforeseen delay or if your GP has been called away. From time to time our doctors may run late, being late can be stressful for patients and staff. One reason we may run late is that our consultations run over time, we kindly ask that when booking your appointments you inform our reception staff if you require a longer appointment.

Did you know? Just four minutes extra per consultation can cause the doctor to run 1 hour late at the end of a session.

Fees and Billing

Our doctors believe in providing the highest quality in patient care without compromise and as such Medical on Mary is a private billing medical centre and payment is expected on the day.

We accept Cash, EFTPOS and credit card payments, and we are able to transfer your receipt electronically to Medicare so that you receive your rebate directly back into your bank account. Please ask our staff for more information on this. In some consultations, there may be additional fees for procedures such as ECGs, respiratory function tests, implanon insertions/removals and surgical procedures.

Please ask our reception staff for the respective fees if needed.
