Mermaid Beach Medical Centre Services

 

We cater to the health needs of all your family. Here are some of our main services.

Immunisation protects children against a range of preventable and life-threatening diseases and infections. Some recommended vaccines are funded by the government. Routine immunisations for children under four include; chickenpox, hepatitis B, measles, meningococcal AWCY, mumps, polio, pneumococcal, rubella, tetanus and whooping cough.

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.

Our specialist GPs can treat a range of common conditions affecting the ear, nose and throat. This includes, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), dizziness, bleeding nose and infections. We also provide professional ear wax removal with micro-suction or syringing to gently and safely remove any blockages from your ears.

It’s important to protect yourself and your family from serious and preventable diseases and infections. Our GPs provide the protection you need with vaccinations for children, travel, your work and more.

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.

Our GPs 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, our GPs will also perform skin flaps and grafts.

Our GPs specialise in sleep problems such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). We can conduct sleep studies at your own home, backed up by thorough examinations and a personalised treatment plan.

Our GPs offer education and advice to minimise health risks while travelling and provide medications and immunisations. Common requirements are prevention of malaria or altitude sickness, treatments for diarrhoea and allergies.

Vasectomies are available at Mermaid Beach Medical Centre. Dr Burns has over 20 years' experience perfoming vasectomies. Vasectomies are minimally invasive and performed under local anaesthetic so you can drive immediately after the procedure and take minimal time off work.
