Costs

This is a private billing medical practice. Payment for consultations is requested at the time of your consultation.

 

There is an initial consultation fee. Subsequent consultations regarding the same condition, within the same episode of care (within 9 months), are discounted.

 

Please see below, for a list of common services performed at the consultation, and associated fees.

 

If more substantial treatments or investigations are needed for your care, we will endeavour to inform you or any additional fees prior to booking for further sessions.

 

Medicare offers a rebate for most services (excluding cosmetic services). You can present your receipt to Medicare to claim this rebate. If you are registered with Medicare Online, we can process this for you, for your convenience.

 

The practice accepts the Department of Veterans’ Affairs Gold Card, and White Card-Specific if it covers skin problems.

 

If you have any concerns regarding fees, please feel free to discuss this with the practice prior to your appointment.

 

If you wish to be seen in the public health system, Dr Wu and Dr Butler also provide public services as visiting dermatologists at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, and Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, respectively. Your referring doctor can refer you to these services if you prefer.
