  1. General Conditions: We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time, in compliance with applicable laws. You understand that your content (not including credit card information), may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. Credit card information is always encrypted during transfer over networks. Unauthorised reproduction, duplication, reselling, or exploitation of any aspect of the Service is strictly prohibited without our express written consent.
  2. Accuracy, completeness, timeliness of information: We do not warrant or guarantee that the information made available on this site is not accurate, complete or current. The information is intended for general understanding and should not serve as the primary basis for healthcare decisions. Any reliance on the material on this site is at your own risk. This site may contain certain historical information. Historical information, necessarily, is not current and is provided for your reference only. We reserve the right to modify the contents of this site at any time, but we have no obligation to update any information on our site. You agree that it is your responsibility to monitor changes to our site. Consultation with primary healthcare providers is strongly recommended. We disclaim liability for reliance on information provided on our site.
  3. Modification to the service and prices: Prices and Services are subject to change without prior notice. We reserve the right to modify or discontinue any service without liability. All initial consults are 30 minutes, and review consults are 15 minutes. Additional fees apply for extended consultations. If longer consultation is required, it should be done at the time of booking. The Sydney Pain Clinic reserves the right to charge additional consult fees, known as ‘long consult fees,’ incremented every 15 minutes.
  4. Cancellation policy: This policy outlines the terms and conditions governing the scheduling and cancellation of appointments at our medical facility. It serves to minimise disruptions caused by late cancellations and no-shows, thereby enabling optimal healthcare delivery to the community we serve. To further secure your commitment and minimise the frequency of no-shows and late cancellations, the clinic reserves the right to request a deposit at the time of booking. This deposit shall be refunded or deducted from the total consultation fee, provided that the appointment is attended as scheduled on the same day. The deposit shall be forfeited in the event of a no-show or a cancellation made less than 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time. We recognise that unforeseen circumstances may arise, compelling you to cancel a prearranged appointment. Should you find yourself in such a situation, we kindly request that you notify our office no less than 48 hours prior to the scheduled consultation. Doing so allows us the opportunity to reallocate your time slot to another patient who may be in need of urgent medical attention. Please be advised that our clinical services, particularly those provided by the consulting physician, are in high demand due to the pervasive incidence of chronic pain within the community. In the event that you cancel an appointment without providing a minimum of 48 hours’ notice, a cancellation fee amounting to 50% of the consultation cost will be levied. This applies uniformly to both initial consultations and subsequent review consultations. Your adherence to this stipulation is requisite for the maintenance of a harmonious practitioner-patient relationship and ensures fair service availability for all patients.
  5. Services: We reserve the right to limit the sales of our Services to any individual, jurisdiction, or geographic region. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis.
