WEIGHT LOSS CLINIC

Our Weight Loss clinic has been running for several years. Your weight loss plan is individualised to include nutrition, activities & medical help as required.

Our Specialist GP is experienced in the range of therapies available. Off-label prescribing is occasionally recommended when standard therapy is not working or has not helped in the past.

The clinic has access to the latest body composition technology to accurately measure your success & enhance motivation. Some people find this motivating but measurements are not compulsory!

DERMATOLOGY

One of our doctors was awarded a Distinction in Clinical Dermatology by The University College of London & won the prize for the top written marks. He regularly taught dermatology to doctors training as GPs.

He provides a specialist general practice dermatology service that bridges General Practice and Specialist Dermatology Practice. The treatment of Rosacea, Acne & Eczema are informed by the latest medical knowledge.

However, please note that Australian regulations prohibit specialist GPs from prescribing some powerful acne drugs, so you will need a dermatology referral for that.

GENERAL PRACTICE

GENERAL TO SPECIALIST PRACTICE

About General Practice

A GP has specialised as a Family Physician who who is able to manage the majority of issues that come their way – in men, womenpregnancy & kids.  GP Training lasts at least 9-10 years. The GP is trained to diagnose a vast range of conditions – including rare conditions. To put this into perspective, GPs often arrange tests for a condition that they might see only once every 5 to 20 years. The GP is trained to be aware of their own limits & to refer appropriately.

The GP can recognise, advise, treat or refer patients with any medical or emotional condition. A patient could present with Asthma or Acne, bowel problems or backache, Diabetes or depression, IBS, or High Blood Pressure. You can expect to be helped by a highly competent, knowledgeable and skilled professional.

How should I chose my GP?

You can source doctors with specific postgraduate specialist training qualifications from the respective college websites. You can go from word of mouth, or look at the practice or doctor’s online profiles. Australian registered Doctors are not allowed to make false promises and must always put their patient’s interests first.

The internet is now full of ratings of doctors – businesses listed on google for example. Like Trip advisor, look at the free text description in the ratings for the reviews most likely to be trustworthy. Extremely positive reviews might be written by a friend of the practice owner, and highly negative reviews might be from a competitor. Most of us are savvy to this which is why reviews need to be read with a questioning head on.

SPECIALIST PRACTICE

GPs & SPECIALISM

Specialist General Practitioner

A specialist GP is defined by medicare as a GP who has been accredited at a higher level of training than a non-specialist GP. Most commonly this is inferred by the initials FRACGP. Most GPs are officially ‘specialists’ in this sense.

Specialities of General Practice

A Specialist GP in Australia is really considered by patients as a GP who has developed further skills in areas such as musculoskeletal medicine, men’s health, menopause, Skin Cancer, & travel medicine.

Different countries have different titles for this type of GP. Overseas, this type of GP is often referred to as a GPwSI (GP with Special Interest) – not a very satisfactory term in the sense that the term ‘interest’ somehow doesn’t seem to encompass the expertise that that is gained through formal qualifications, professional development & experience.

Patients do not need a referral to see a Specialist GP but do need a referral to see a hospital-based specialist.

Specialist General Practice does require a ‘long appointment’ –  at least for the first 1-2 appointments.

Private Billing General Practice

All Consultations at South East Medical are privately billed putting you in the driving seat of your health care. There is a lot of evidence from The UK that longer GP consultations does increase quality and improve patient satisfaction. Private practice ensures adequate time with the doctor of your choice.
