CHILDHOOD & ADULT VACCINATION
Mental Health is more than just mental illness. Poor mental health can prevent you from coping with the stresses of daily life, working productively and enjoying life to its fullest.
Do you feel:
- Anxious or worried
- Depressed or unhappy
- Quiet or withdrawn
- Guilty or worthless
Have you noticed changes in your behaviour or feelings, weight or appetite? Do you have problems sleeping? You could be suffering from poor mental health. Book an appointment today with one of our GP’s to discuss this. You may be eligible for a Mental Health Care Plan Referral which entitles you to Medicare rebatable services from a Psychologist. For more information there is an Access to Mental Health Care – Patient Information Sheet available to read and print.
Chronic Disease Management
A chronic disease is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer, for example, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions and stroke.
Ante-Natal & Maternity Shared Care
We can help organise health screening for you and your baby as well as organise your maternal care at either a public hospital or a private obstetrician.
Intravenous Nutritional Therapy
Intravenous Nutritional Therapy is used as a complementary therapy for those suffering for chronic conditions of the gut or any condition that limits the body’s absorption of nutrients.
It can also be used for those suffering from severe viral infections or post-viral fatigue that are having difficulty recovering.
Our Doctors will assess your deficiencies and tailor make the ingredients of the antioxidants and vitamins based on the assessment.
Only Dr Ali Araghi who has extensive knowledge in this field performs this type of therapy. If you have any further questions please speak with our friendly reception staff.
ECG, Spirometry & Ear Irrigation
A health assessment is a plan of care that identifies the specific needs of a person and can also coordinate the person’s health care.
Dr Ali is an authorised prescriber for medicinal cannabis. This means he has proven experience and expertise and does not need to seek further approval from the TGA to prescribe medicinal cannabis to patients under his care.
Medicinal cannabis can be used to help treat a variety of chronic health conditions. Book in for a consultation with Dr Ali to see if you are a suitable candidate.
Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Patients
To help ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people receive primary health care matched to their needs our doctors can assist with early detection, diagnosis and treatment for common conditions.
There are 3 health assessments available to different age groups to assist in physical, psychological and social wellbeing. Health Assessments are available to children under 15 years old, adults aged between 15 and 55 years old and patients aged 55 years and older. Once a health assessment has been completed, patients are eligible for further support and treatment from practice nurses or allied health services.
The ‘closing the gap’ program is available to patients who identify as an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander living with, or at risk of, chronic disease. Once enrolled in the program, eligible patients will benefit from lower or no costs when purchasing PBS medications.
