Women and children’s health

Our doctors are experienced at providing care for women planning a family, pregnant mothers, newborn infants, toddlers and children of all ages. Most of us are parents and have experienced the challenges of parenting first hand.

Men’s health

Men often need to be coaxed into looking after themselves. We promote men’s health at every opportunity and encourage partners and children to encourage the men in their life to have a check up yearly. We are experienced at dealing with all men’s health conditions and have a good network of appropriate specialists if required.

Management of chronic conditions

Managing chronic conditions requires a good understanding of your own health conditions. In particular, what can be expected to happen, what you need to do to optimise your health and what you can do when you get sick. We encourage our patients to undergo chronic disease management planning where appropriate and can work with you to get the most out of your body and mind.

Skin cancer medicine

Dr Dart enjoys managing skin conditions, performing skin checks for skin cancer and performing minor surgery and procedures where required. He has a Certificate in Primary Care Skin Cancer Medicine from the University of Queensland.

Lifestyle and travel medicine

The practice has provided travel medicine services to local students, business people and academics since it began and we will continue to do so. We hold many necessary travel vaccinations on site and will happily help you to develop a travel health plan. We are also committed to facilitating and encouraging the best lifestyle for our patients and staff and this will be a keep part of our upcoming refurbishment and extension of our clinic.

Occupational health and Pre-employment medicals

Dr Ng and Dr Cham are very experienced in dealing with occupational health issues and pre-employment medicals, call our receptionists to make an appointment.
