Clontarf Bridge Medical Centre Services
We cater to the health needs of all your family. Here are some of our main services.
Many people self-diagnose allergies and self-medicate or change their diets, without seeing an allergy specialist. Our GPs offer accurate diagnosis of allergies using reviews of your medical history, physical examinations and testing, such as skin prick tests.
The purpose of antenatal care is to improve the health and wellbeing of mum and baby and should begin before pregnancy. Our GPs provide support and guidance every steps of the way. The health of both mum and baby is monitored through regular examinations, screening tests and ultrasounds.
GP Management Plans are comprehensive, long-term care plans, made just for you if you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, arthritis, stroke, cancer and chronic pain. Our GPs will manage and coordinate the ongoing care you receive from all your healthcare providers.
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 Dr Andrew Wolollons is qualified to provide a Recreational Dive Medical assessment. 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. All divers in Queensland are legally required to have passed a Diving Medicals Examination that has been done in accordance with Australian Standards AS 4005.1.
Employers may require health screening. Our GPs provide pre-employment health assessments including hearing, vision and fitness tests. Blood and urine tests can also be arranged. Injured at work? Your medical expenses and wages may be covered under workers compensation and WorkCover.
We have Skin Cancer Physicians who have additional training and experience to assess, diagnose and treat skin cancers. We use special equipment including dermatoscopes and photographic monitoring of skin lesions to assess your skin. We can sometimes treat pre-cancerous lesions and early skin cancers with non-surgical treatments. The surgical services we provide include biopsies, excisions, cryotherapy and curettage of superficial skin lesions. When necessary, we will also perform skin flaps and grafts.
Dr Woollons provides procedures for babies with tongue-tie.
Vasectomies are available at Clontarf Bridge Medical Centre. Dr Burns has over 20 years' experience performing vasectomies. Vasectomies are minimally invasive and performed under local anaesthetic so you can drive immediately after the procedure and take minimal time off work.
Our GPs help women at every stage of life including contraception, cervical screening, sexual problems, pregnancy, ovarian cysts, period problems and menopause.
If you are having difficulties with your mental health that are impacting your day to day life, make an appointment to see your GP and if appropriate they can help facilitate your care with a Mental Health Treatment Plan. This involves a collaborative plan with your GP regarding the best way to manage your mental health.
