Procedure Fee: A procedure fee applies for minor surgery (eg. skin cancer surgery, ingrown toenail surgery, foreign body removal including manual removal of ear wax, laceration repairs and implanon insertion/removal, iron infusion etc). This fee varies depending on the size of the procedure. Please check with your doctor or our receptionist prior to your procedure or treatment if concerned.
