Station Medical Clinic
Established in 1990, the practice is dedicated to delivering excellent medical care, treating every patient with the utmost privacy, dignity, and consideration. Our goal is to foster a "family practice" atmosphere within a medical centre setting, ensuring a welcoming and compassionate environment for all.
Chatswood Station Medical Clinic operates under a mixed billing model. This means that our fees may vary depending on the type of consultation, the services provided, and the healthcare professional you consult. We offer bulk billing for eligible patients, including pensioners, healthcare cardholders, and children under the age of 16.
Each doctor independently sets their own fees for consultations.
Please note that standard consultations are limited to 15 minutes.
Standard consultations last between 10-15 minutes, and we kindly request that you limit your discussion to one issue per consultation. Patients with appointments will generally be seen before walk-in patients, except in cases of emergency. If you arrive at the clinic late in the day or when the clinic has reached full capacity, you may be unable to see a doctor unless it is an urgent emergency. In such instances, a receptionist will inform you about this and provide guidance on alternative care options and after-hours services.
Results can be discussed with an appointment.
You will be contacted if results require urgent attention.
Zero Tolerance Policy
We believe our staff are exceptional and deserve respect.
Patients who use abusive language or exhibit aggressive, threatening behaviour will be removed from the waiting list.
If necessary, the police will be contacted to address the situation.
Please advise the Receptionist if an Interpreter is needed, or if information is required in a language other than English.
The Interpreter Service is free to holders of a valid Medicare Card.
Third Party Providers
Pathology and other service providers set their own fees and have specific policies regarding Medicare rebates. We cannot guarantee that a particular fee will be applicable to your circumstances. Please consult directly with your third-party service provider regarding their fees.
Please inform the reception staff upon your arrival if your consultation is related to Worker's Compensation.
Payment is required on the day of service unless you have an active claim number and an insurance provider that will cover the costs. Our reception team is available to assist you in documenting your claim details.
Home & Other Visits
Regular patients of Dr. Ian McIntosh may request a home visit on weekdays if their condition prevents them from attending the clinic. Please notify the clinic reception, and the doctor will get in touch with you to arrange the visit.

Repeat prescriptions and referrals can be provided in response to scheduling an appointment for a consultation.

At this clinic, we respect patient's rights and needs by treating them with courtesy and respect. Emergency cases are given priority. Most consultations take 10-15 minutes. Please advise reception staff if you anticipate needing a longer consultation, e.g. complicated problems, medicals. If you come to the clinic late in the day, or if the clinic is at full capacity, there is a possibility that you may not be able to see a Doctor, unless it is an absolute emergency. A receptionist will advise you of this and will advise you of other care options and after hours services
