At Alstonville Medical Centre we have Australian Cardiac Diagnostic Service visiting our practice to provide Echocardiography for our patients. An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of your heart.
The examination is performed by specialist sonographer Helga, at the practice, and the pictures and measurements obtained during this examination are then forwarded to cardiologists, who assess the information and produce a comprehensive echocardiographic report, which is then returned to your referring doctor.
Australian Cardiac Diagnostic Service oﬀers a bulk billing service to all pensioners, healthcare card holders and patients under 18 years of age. However, an out-of-pocket charge will be levied for all other patients. Payment of $358.00 is requested on the day of your examination, and a receipt will be forwarded to you within a few days which you may present to Medicare for a refund of $161.90.
