What to do first?

For an appointment please call the rooms on (07) 3834 6797 or complete Make an Appointment.

Booking an appointment

All appointments can be organised by contacting the office on (07) 3834 6797, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) between 8.30am and 4.30pm.

Please be aware that you will need to have a current referral from your General Practitioner or Specialist. This referral enables you to claim part of your consultation cost through Medicare and gives Dr Cutbush important information regarding your condition. If you are unsure if your referral is current please ask the friendly reception staff when booking your next appointment.   If you have been advised by your physiotherapist or other allied health professional to see Dr Cutbush you will still need a referral from your GP to enable you to claim through Medicare.  

When you come for your first appointment, please ensure you bring:

  • A referral from your GP
  • Your Medicare Card
  • Your Health Insurance Information ( if applicable)
  • Any X-rays, CT scans, MRIs and any other information relevant to your condition
  • If you have had any previous surgery with another doctor for this condition, it is helpful to bring information about your previous operation.
  • Your workers compensation claim details if applicable.

To cancel or reschedule an appointment

Please advise the rooms at least one day prior to your scheduled appointment if you need to cancel or reschedule.

An SMS will be sent to you (if you provide a mobile number) one business day prior to your appointment, please reply to this SMS to advise that you will be attending.

Initial Consultation

For your initial assessment you must provide a referral from your General Practitioner or Treating Specialist. Without a referral you will not be able to claim back any of the consultation fee from Medicare.

Please advise the staff if you are coming in for a new condition or if you have not seen Dr Cutbush for an extended period of time so an appropriate amount of time can be allocated.

The cost of the initial consultation is $180.00.  This is payable on the day and you will be able to claim a portion of this back from Medicare if you have a current referral.

Subsequent Consultation

Dr Cutbush may require you to return for a review consultation. This may be to discuss results from further investigations and/or to review your progress and future treatment.

The cost of a subsequent consultation is $85.00. With a current referral a portion of this is claimable from Medicare.

Postoperative Consultation

You will be advised of any postoperative consultations when you are discharged from hospital. These visits are required to view your progress and to discuss your future rehabilitation. Sometimes these consultations will be conducted with a physiotherapist or hand therapist depending on your procedure.

Extra Costs

At times a minor procedure may be performed during your consultation; this may include an injection or the removal or application of a plaster cast. You may be charged extra for these procedures.

Payment Information

Payment is required at the time of your consultation. You may pay by Cash, Cheque, Money Order, Credit Card (Bankcard, MasterCard and Visa only) or Eftpos.

Please advise the staff prior to your consultation if you are requiring your account to be sent elsewhere i.e. Workcover or a Third Party Insurance Company. You must provide your claim number, insurer contact and claim details, as enquiries will be made to confirm payment of your account prior to your consultation. If a third party does not accept liability you are responsible for your account and must pay at the time of your consultation.
