Once you have enrolled with our practice, we invite you to make an appointment with our Practice Nurse for a New Patient Health Assessment prior to your first appointment with the doctor. This is a general health assessment, history and overview of your health needs. This is a slightly longer appointment so the fee is $62 ( nurse appointment and Doctor appointment)  $33 if you have a Community Service Card.

 

We also offer a double appointment for new patients who feel they would benefit from a comprehensive health assessment and plan.  The cost of this including a 15 minute appointment with the nurse is $92.
