Late Notice Policy and Fees:

To ensure that you receive the best possible care and achieve your goals it is important that you attend your scheduled appointments.

If you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment you must provide us with at least 24 hours’ notice, so we can offer the appointment to someone in need from our waiting list.

Notice must be given by phoning the clinic on 3394 1434. If there is no answer, please leave your name, contact number and time of appointment. We will call you back to help you reschedule.

If you provide less than 24hrs notice the FULL APPOINTMENT FEE will apply.

We are a small business and if we don’t have a chance to cover our costs and fill the appointment it affects our ability to deliver a quality service.

We understand that sometimes life gets in the way of scheduled appointment times and we do take extenuating circumstances into consideration.

We greatly appreciate your support and understanding of our policy and value your questions should you have any.

We also would like to avoid applying these fees, so your co-operation is greatly appreciated.

Late or missed appointment fees cannot be claimed under your health fund, WorkCover, insurance or Medicare.

WorkCover, Third Party and other insurance claims

All appointments must be paid in full at time of consultation. It is the responsibility of you the client to ensure you have the necessary forms and up-to-date medical certificate/s to cover your treatments if you are claiming through a third party. It is your responsibility to cover cost of treatment if your claim is rejected or not processed by a third party/private health.
