Health Assessment, over 75.
Our doctors recommend an annual Health Assessment for all patients 75 and above. This in-depth assessment is a way of identifying health issues that are potentially preventable or amendable to early treatment to improve health and quality of life. Sr Gina Sealey is the co-ordinator of 75 plus Health Assessments and can be contacted on 5523 2322.
Health Assessment, 45-49 year old.
A health assessment is recommended for everyone ages 45-49 who has a specific risk factor for developing a chronic disease. These risk factors include smoking, overweight, high blood pressure or a family history of chronic disease. The Health Assessment is a comprehensive medical check and will give us a great opportunity to assess current medical conditions, whilst attention will be paid to preventative health factors specific to the individual patients needs.
Our doctors are trained and skilled in performing minor surgeries. Procedures such as excisions of moles or skin cancers, and resection of ingrown toenails are regularly performed. We can also treat warts, skin tags, lipomas, cysts and boils.
Our nursing team provides high quality care for all wounds that require dressing.
All of our doctors can help you plan and manage the early stages of pregnancy. We recommend discussing pregnancy with your doctor as far in advance as possible.
We welcome new patients. Please advise our staff to make a double appointment if you are new to the medical centre, or if you have not visited for some time.
It is important to seek the advice of your doctor at least 6 weeks before you travel overseas. We can help make you aware of any medical risks, optimize your own treatment, and administer vaccines or prescribe anti-malarials if necessary. If you are traveling to a country that requires Yellow Fever Vaccine, please advise staff prior to making your appointment.
Our standard appointment time is 15-20 minutes (as recommended by RACGP). If you think you need more time than this, please ask reception to book you a double appointment.
