Our Policies

Fees Policy

We are a Private billing practice and fees are payable at the end of the consultation.
Fees will vary depending the type of visit. We offer concession rates to patients that hold a Federal Govt approved Concession Card. Please note you must present your pension card to obtain this discount.

It is practice policy that all accounts are settled in full on the day of your consultation. Payments may be made by EFTPOS and credit card (Mastercard and Visa card cards accepted). Upon payment of your account, our receptionist will lodge your claim with Medicare. Ensuring you are covered by Medicare and you have your bank details registered with Medicare, your rebate will be forwarded directly into your nominated bank account within 48 hours.

Please note that medicare rebate is the payment to you by the government. Please contact medicare directly if you have any issues

Results Policy

Results are checked daily by our doctors and nurses. We recommend patients to book an appointment with their doctor at least 7 days after they have had their test. If you do not make a follow-up appointment, please be aware that there may be a wait to see your doctor. The practice nurse will contact you if your doctor wishes to see you sooner than your planned appointment. 

If you misplace your X-Ray/Pathology request form, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide you with a replacement form in time (within 48 hours) and you may need to reschedule your appointment. Please note that our reception staff do not have access to your clinical information and so cannot give out results.


We do not offer repeat prescription requests without seeing a doctor. You will need to see your GP for repeat scripts. In the event that you need authority scripts by a gastroenterologist, it is a PBS requirement that you attend a review appointment in order to issue the script. We therefore advise you to make an appointment as soon as you are aware that you are on your last repeat of your prescription.

Anti-Discrimination Policy

Our Practice will not discriminate against new or existing patients. All patients will not be refused access to medical care from a doctor on the basis of their sex, age, religion, ethnicity, sexual preference or medical condition. All doctors and staff expect to treat patients with respect, courtesy, politeness and understanding at all times. Dr Yee speaks various languages to support our patients.

Booking & Cancellation Policy

We understand unexpected circumstances may prevent you from attending your appointment. As we often have a waitlist, failure to notify our reception team within the following timeframes will incur a the following fees:

Rooms consultations - 4 hours minimum notice if you are unable to, or no longer need your scheduled appointment - cancellation fee of $50.00

Procedures – 72 hours minimum notice if you are unable to attend your scheduled procedure – cancellation fee $250.00

If cancelling due to COVID19 testing requirements a copy of your txt results or a medical certificate from your GP may be required. Payment is required before future appointments can be offered. These cancellation fees cannot be claimed through Medicare or Private Health Insurance.


Your medical record is a confidential document. It is the policy of this practice to maintain security of personal health information at all times and to ensure that this information is only available to authorised members of staff and third parties. This means we require your verbal or written consent to discuss your medical records and appointments with family members. If your information is no longer needed after this time, it will be destroyed in a secure manner in accordance with the appropriate governing standards.


As the patient you are responsible for obtaining and ensuring your referral is current with our practice. All GP referrals are current for a period of 12 months unless they are marked as "indefinite referrals". All specialist referrals are valid for a 3 month period only. If you have seen our Drs and your referral has expired we will be unable to process your Medicare claim, and you will be required to make full payment of any owed fees without a refund being payable from Medicare.
