Do I need a referral?
No. You do not need to have a referral to see any of our therapists – they are all Primary Practitioners. However, if your doctor has you on a Care Plan claimable through Medicare, (on the Chronic Disease Management program), you will need a special referral form from your GP. If you are covered by DVA, your doctor must provide us with a D904 referral.
Can I use my health fund card?
Yes. We have a HICAPS terminal so we can swipe your card and get you a rebate on the spot!
Do you take credit cards?
Yes. We accept ALL credit cards, including American Express.
Are you open early and late?
Yes. We generally open at 7.30am and close at 7pm. *Occasionally we may open a little earlier and take an early mark every now and then, but we certainly cater to people who are not available in normal business hours.
Do you open on weekends?
Yes. We are open on Saturday mornings.
Is there parking available nearby?
Yes. At Mingara, the club has a large car park, and a pick-up/drop-off circle in front. At Ettalong there is parking at the front of the clinic, as well as around the side. Behind the clinic there is a large car park opposite the Mantra.
