We are a Private Clinic

At Observatory Tower Medical Centre, we believe quality of care is important. To address complex or multiple matters you may require a longer appointment. It is important to the doctors at Observatory Tower Medical Centre that you have the time to discuss your concerns and health needs. A gap fee facilitates this.

Because we are a private clinic, you will be requested to pay your full fee after your consultation. This is unless someone else has agreed to pay your fees, such as your employer, or it is bulk-billed through Medicare. We accept cash, EFTPOS, Visa, Mastercard or AMEX.

Your full fee depends on which doctor you see, and the length of your consultation. The out-of-pocket-expense for your consultation after you have claimed your Medicare rebate (on-the-spot) is generally around $65 for a standard consult.

Other services such as home visits, after-hours care, some tests and vaccinations incur an additional cost, depending on the service. Your doctor can discuss these fees with you.


As a private clinic, we generally do not bulk-bill except for the following:

  • The patient is 15 years or under, or
  • The patient holds a valid Commonwealth Concession Card, such as a Healthcare Card, a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card, a Pension Card, or a DVA Concession Card.

Our doctors are also able to bulk-bill specially funded Government initiatives if the patient meets certain eligibility criteria, such as:

  • Health Assessments for patients aged 45-49 and 75+
  • Chronic Disease Management Plans and Reviews

Please ask your doctor if you would like more information about these services.
