Dr Joshi has additional training and experience to safely treat a variety of skin problems and reduce the changes seen with aging and sun-damaged skin. Treatments include anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and thread lifts.

Scuba diving is great fun but also carries dangers. If you’re aged under 16, over 45, or have certain medical conditions, you will need an approved Dive Medical. At our centre we have GPs that are qualified to give these comprehensive assessments. Remember, not every GP can provide these and overseas certificates may not be accepted in Australia. The risks of diving increase with age, so divers over 30 should be tested every three years. Those aged over 50 should be tested every year. Dive medicals cannot be claimed under Medicare.

The surgical services we provide include biopsies, excisions, cryotherapy and curettage of superficial skin lesions. When necessary, our GPs will also perform skin flaps and grafts.

Perform your best with the help of your GP. We not only treat injuries but offer advice on physical fitness, exercise, nutrition planning and rehabilitation.

This is essential for travel to areas such as sub-Saharan Africa and tropical South America. Please make sure you book in for your yellow fever vaccination no less than 10 days before entering a risk area.
