Forrestfield Medical Centre Services

 

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

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.

Dr Thiart 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.

Feeling tired or lacking energy? You may be iron deficient. In some cases taking iron supplements orally isn’t effective or can’t be tolerated. Our GPs can offer iron infusions (IVs) directly into your blood stream.

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.

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 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.

Our GPs help women at every stage of life including contraception, cervical screening, sexual problems, pregnancy, ovarian cysts, period problems and menopause.

For patient comfort and convenience, we are pleased to offer Telehealth services.  Please be advised that Telehealth appointments can not be used for medical certificates, authority scripts and referrals.  You will be required to see your doctor face to face for these services.  We apologise for any inconvenience.
