Ocean Grove Medical Clinic and Barwon Heads Medical Clinic fees

There are no hidden costs.
All fees are requested to be paid on the day. If you have difficulties paying on the day please see reception staff. A late fee of $5.00 will be added to your account if your account is not paid on the day of consultation.
*We accept most forms of payment, including credit and cash. *credit card surcharges apply
