Our preference is like most practices and allied health professionals, for payment on the day of consultation/treatment.
- An itemised account and receipt will be given to you.This Practice does not provide credit unless prior arrangements have been made with Dr Hill. All accounts must be paid in full within 7 days of receiving the invoice. Late payment will attract a 8.57%p.a. accounting fee plus GST. This practice does not accept health fund rebate only as full payment, unless an agreement has been reached with Dr Hill.
Session Types The first two sessions will be regarded as an Initial Consultation and Initial Assessment. These sessions involve the gathering of information from clients / parents and other sources, as well as an assessment of the client.
