Mirena (IUD) insertions, skin checks and excisions1 Varies Varies Varies
Other medical procedures2/nurse appointments3 Varies Varies Varies

1. Mirena insertions are carried out by Dr Michelle Wellington and are priced differently to standard GP consults. Skin checks/excisions are carried out by Dr Ian Devlin and are charged as a combination of a consultation fee, part of the cost of consumables (eg dressings) and a nurse appointment fee that reflects the nature of the procedure. Please call us on 03 9111 8959 to discuss the prices for these procedures.

2. This medical procedure fee is different to the above procedure fee for Mirena insertions that are carried out by Dr Michelle Wellington or skin checks/excisions which are carried out by Dr Ian Devlin. This fee covers basic medical procedures such as skin stitches or skin glue and includes the nurse appointment fee.

3. The nurse appointment fee will apply for basic medical procedures such as administering vaccines and changing dressings. Please note that consumables (eg travel vaccines, dressings etc) will apply on top of the nurse appointment fee. For Mirena insertions, skin checks/excisions and other more complex procedures, a different fee will apply instead.
