Tewantin Medical Centre’s Doctors are experienced in managing Mental Health issues as well as having a Psychologist who practices out of our rooms on certain days. 1 hour appointments with our Psychologist Suzie Endrey cost $150. Patients with a current Mental Health Care Plan can receive back a Medicare Rebate of $87.75. Please note that there is a cancellation fee of $50 if a patient cancels their appointment <24 hours prior to consultation time.
We also have an extensive referral network of both Psychologists and Psychiatrists, Mental Health Nurses and Social Workers. We welcome anyone who wants to reach out, connect and seek help. Please contact us if you need assistance or advice.
Medicare provides funding under the Enhanced Primary Care items to subsidise visits to Psychologists and Psychiatrists. This can be coordinated through Tewantin Medical Centre
