Welcome to Skin Cancer Only
Skincanceronly medical practice is based in Geelong, Victoria, Australia.
We ONLY accept new patients who are referred with proven or suspected skin cancer.
NOTE: From January 19 2015 pensioners will no longer be bulk billed for consultations at our clinic. On that date major Government Medicare changes mean that continuing to bulk bill pensioners would result in this practice making a substantial loss. This is of course unsustainable and bulk billing must unfortunately therefore cease. Pensioners must pay in full on the day from January 19 2015. Medicare will reimburse all but $20 of your account. Hence pensioners will be out of pocket $20 for every consultation.
More details of our new billing requirements can be found here.
We understand that some pensioners may choose to no longer have their skin cancers managed here as the $20 is too much for them. Please feel free to ring us on 03 52445100 (business hours) to cancel your future appointments. You can also cancel your appointment on line here.
