A good Palm Beach GP is worth their weight in gold. Setting up a lifelong relationship with a trusted GP is one of the most important things you can do in life. Prevention is better than a cure and a GP can help you with preventative medicine to avoid getting into health difficulties in the first place.
Only certain Palm Beach GP clinics are bulk billing clinics and some clinics may only bulk bill patients who are on a health care card or disability. A lot of clinics will charge a gap fee, this is the difference between their fee and what Medicare pays. The cost to visit a GP is a cheap investment in your health.
You become a doctor in Palm Beach by studying medicine through a accredited university. You can do this via an undergraduate degree or via a postgraduate degree. Once this initial study is completed you will then need to work in a hospital to complete your next phases of training.
A Palm Beach bulk billing clinic will do what is called bulk billing, this is where the charge for your consultation is billed directly to medicare via your medicare card number and at no direct cost to you.
GP stands for general practitioner. A Palm Beach GP is a medical doctor who works for you the patient to help treat and prevent illnesses from occurring.
