Do I need a referral?
Most people do not need a doctor’s referral to see an osteopath as we are primary health care practitioners. However, a referral is required for Workers Compensation, Department of Veterans Affairs and the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) patients.
We also treat MAIB patients who have a valid claim number. Private Health Insurance Members with extras cover can claim back a partial rebate at the time of their visit.
How to find us
Freshwater Osteopathy is located on Penquite Road, Newstead. We are open Monday to Friday, with late appointments also available until 6:30pm on Tuesday evenings.
There is ample parking available at the rear of the building, making us an easily accessible practice.
Appointments are also available once a week at the George Town Health and Community Centre.
