Referrals are not necessary, although a brief letter outlining your medications and current management plan for the condition can be helpful.
In general, Medicare cannot be used for our treatments. However, in certain circumstances, Medicare items can be applied to laser treatments for facial vascular conditions.
General Practitioners see many patients in their practice for dermatological issues. On occasion further referral to a dermatologist is required. However, frequently, General Practitioners effectively handle the medical aspects of skin conditions and may refer to Complete Skin to address complimentary management. This could include recommending appropriate medical grade skin care products, laser treatment of vascular conditions and scarring and improving the health and appearance of the skin.
Where appropriate and with your permission, Complete Skin will communicate with your G.P. about your treatments.
