Frequently Asked Dermatology Questions

These are some frequently asked dermatology questions we are asked by our patients, but please feel free to chat to our friendly staff if you have any further queries.

Do I need a referral?

Yes. It is important you bring a GP referral note to your appointment so you can claim the Medicare rebate applicable to your treatment.

What should I bring to my appointment?

  • Your GP referral note
  • Your Medicare card
  • Private health cover details
  • Any other information that may assist the doctor in providing a comprehensive consultation eg. blood results, x-rays, photos
What is the cost to see a dermatologist?

Dr Enjeti has carefully set her fee structure taking into consideration AMA benchmarks, medicare rebate levels and fees charged by other dermatologists. All fees are to be paid at the time of consultation. Please feel free to discuss any further questions regarding fees with our friendly reception staff when making an appointment booking.

Does my private insurance cover the fees?

Private insurance does not cover the consultation fees to see a dermatologist. Medicare does provide a rebate, the amount varies depending on the type of treatment received. We will endeavour to ensure that Department of Veterans Affairs patients do not incur any out of pocket expenses.
