Bulk-billing is available at all our clinics, however, some procedures incur an out-of-pocket cost. MRI procedures performed at our Moonee Ponds and Hawthorn clinics have a varying charge depending on the region or regions. Please ask receptionist when making your appointment. Certain procedures that may not meet Medicare guidelines, may be subject to payment. You will be informed if any charges are to be incurred prior to your visit.
Our friendly reception staff will advise patients if they need to follow any particular examination preparations to be performed, prior to the procedure (e.g. fasting)
Delivery of Results
For those doctors that do accept deliveries, all x-ray results are delivered to your doctor within 24 hours of your procedure being performed. In some instances patients have the opportunity to wait for their results. This usually takes about an hour or emailed.
FMIG offers a number of delivery options of reports to our referring practitioners:
Courier Delivery: FMIG operates a fast and efficient courier service, providing next day delivery
Email Reports: Reports can be downloaded directly to referring doctors. For security and privacy, reports are encrypted which permits the reports to be incorporated in medical records systems.
Urgent reports: In urgent cases we kindly ask the patient to wait in our patient seating area for the reports to be produced.
Faxing of reports is also available upon request
Parking and Disabled Access and Public Transport
All five clinics have the advantage of ample parking, which is adjacent to our buildings. Disabled access is fully available at all Four sites. Public Transport facilities are adjacent to all our clinics making patient access very easy. For more information please see the location maps for each clinic Moonee Ponds, St Albans, Footscray, Hawthorn and Sunshine.
It is highly recommended that appointments are made. This can be arranged directly by your doctor or yourself. It is important to bring with you the referral prepared by your doctor. Patients with an appointment will be given priority. Patients may also be called before you due to the availability of different rooms for different examinations. It is also important that you bring your previous films with you.
We appreciate your understanding.
