Cost of derm. appointment in Australia?

Hi,

Does anyone know how much a derm. appointment is in Australia?

I live in metropolitan Melbourne, no private health cover.

Many thanks,

Brenton

I had to pay $85 for the first visit with Doctor Raymund in Bankstown. I would of shoped around for something cheaper but he was only 2 minutes away from my house. Second visit was only 35 dollars though.

Pull out the yellow pages and just ring as many as possible in your area. And i did get a decent rebate as well so the costs are subsidized.

Thank you both for your replies!

When you speak of the subsidised rate, is this from Medicare or a private health care fund?

Either way, the prices are OK; I just thought it might be heaps because I don't know of many dermatologists.

Cheers

ahh medicare. because its a specialised treatment i.e. dermatologist, so the government subsidises costs bigtime for specialists.
