What Renée Mill offers to GPs

I believe that I have solid understanding of mental illness, physical illness and the ripple effects both have on independence in living, relationships, sexual function and self esteem.

I have kept up to date with the latest evidence- based therapeutic techniques and continue to do so. I always take a complete history and make an assessment of what an individual needs and whether I am the best person to help the patient. I have no problem referring a patient to a colleague whom I believe is better qualified to help.

Renée Mill's Eligibility to provide items

I am registered with the NSW psychologists' board. I am a member of the Australian Psychological Society and the College of Clinical Psychology. Therefore patients whom I treat are eligible for the specialist rebates.

Renée Mill's Fees

I generally consult with a patient for an hour in my rooms in Edgecliff, NSW. The scheduled Medicare fee is $138.40 and the rebate from Medicare is $117.65. I will bulk bill if I have an instruction from the GP that the patient cannot afford the full fee. Patients are required to pay with cash or a cheque after each session and then claim a refund from Medicare afterwards.

Conclusion

As an experienced clinician, I am very aware that each patient is an individual with unique needs. I like to work closely with their GP to provide optimal treatment. I love feedback and collaboration and am flexible, willing to adapt treatments where necessary.
