Appointments
We encourage patients to make appointments with the doctor of their choice, however we recognise that you cannot always predict when you will need to see a doctor and that there are occasions when you will need to see your doctor as soon as possible with little or no notice. Because of this, we welcome walk-in patients, however, patients with appointments have priority over those who do not, and those patients without appointments will wait longer than those who do.While we try to maintain appointment times, some problems take longer to deal with than others. Please be patient and understanding – the doctor will also give you all the time you need. Your help in requesting extra time for complex and thorough examinations such as annual health checks, multiple problems, surgical procedures, mental health plans and travel health would be appreciated.
If you are experiencing chest pain, heavy bleeding or difficulty breathing we recommend that you go to your nearest hospital immediately. Please advise the receptionist on arrival if you believe you require urgent medical attention.
Fees
Our doctors are independent practitioners and set their own fees. The fee will vary with the length, complexity and type of the consultation.  Longer than standard consultations attract a higher fee.
Consultations after-hours, weekends & Public Hoidays also attract higher fees.
Fees are as follows:
Level B            $60.00 – $90.00
Level C            $120.00 – $160.00
After Hours     $450.00
Please call reception on 6259 1444 for more information. All workers compensation cases require proof of the insurer’s acceptance of liability for accounts to be issued directly to the insurer, otherwise patients must pay for the consultation themselves.

Home Visits
Home visits are available for regular patients of Florey Medical Centre who cannot attend the surgery due to their medical condition. Please call reception on 6259 1444 for more information.
Telephoning your doctor
You may contact your doctor during opening hours. If the doctor is not available a message will be taken.
Repeat prescriptions, Referrals
When you require a repeat prescription we request that you make an appointment to see your regular doctor. In cases of urgent need, at the discretion of your regular doctor, a repeat prescription may be written without a consultation. A small administration fee is charged for this service, for which there is no Medicare rebate.Referrals ensure that you are referred to the appropriate specialists. Medicare does not allow backdated referrals. Referrals written without a consultation may incur a small administration fee.
Medical Certificates
Medical Certificates are a legal document. It is illegal to back date medical certificates and they will only be issued for genuine medical conditions that require time off from work or study. To obtain a medical certificate you must have a consultation with a doctor. A small fee may be charged for replacement medical certificates.
Results
We recommend that patients return for a follow up consultation to discuss the results of all tests. However, if you choose not to return for a consultation we ask that you call Florey Medical Centre to be advised of the results of your tests over the phone.
Privacy
Your medical record is a confidential document. It is the policy of this practice to maintain the security of your personal health information at all times and to ensure that this information is available only to authorised members of staff. For in-house research, practice meetings and quality assurance only de-identified information will be used.

Please let your doctor know if you do not want this to occur.Notification of all pap smears, childhood immunisations and some adult vaccinations will be provided to the relevant national registry. Please advise your doctor if you do not wish this to occur.
