Family Medicine

Allambie Medical Centre specialises in family medicine. We know how important it is for families to have a doctor that knows and cares about them.  We are now caring for our third and fourth generations of families.

We value your trust in our medical advice and we are committed to ongoing education to ensure our advice is up to date.  All our doctors are vocationally registered, which means that they satisfy annual ongoing educational requirements.



We have all childhood vaccinations available.  Please let our receptionist know if you are coming in for vaccinations.  We have adult vaccinations (such as Tetanus, Fluvax and Hepatitis) in stock.  Most travel vaccinations are available from the adjacent pharmacy.

Travel Medicine Advice

We subscribe to the Medical Advisory Service for Travelers Abroad (MASTA) which can prepare on line a detailed report on your travel health requirements.  Most travel vaccines are available in the surgery or from our adjacent pharmacy.  (Yellow fever vaccination – needed for travel to parts of Africa and South America – needs to be obtained elsewhere).  If you wish to discuss your travel health needs please book a LONG appointment and please bring your itinerary with you.


Mental Health Counselling

All doctors in this practice have undertaken further education in dealing with mental health issues.  If necessary we can refer you to appropriate psychiatric or psychological services.  If we prepare a Mental Health Care Plan you can obtain a significant rebate for psychological services.  It is most important to book a LONG appointment for this.




Allied Health Support

Dietitian Dianne Muniz is available by appointment on Saturday mornings. 

Podiatrist Joesphine Nelson is available every 2nd Tuesday for consultations

Douglass Hanly Moir have daily pathology collection from our practice.



Diabetes Clinic

Our nurses run a diabetes clinic to monitor all our diabetic patients.  Patients are seen on a 3 to 6 monthy basis by the nurse and the doctor.  Dietary and exercise advice, BP, weight and circulation checks, monitoring of blood glucose levels and adjustments to medications can be carried out.  Good control of blood glucose levels significantly reduces the long term risks of diabetes such as heart attacks, strokes and other vascular complications.



Dressings Clinic

Our nurses run a dressing clinic for any patient with a chronic ulcer.




INR Testing

We have our own INR machine which means we can give immediate results to all of our patients on Warfarin.




We can perform ECGs and Spirometry (lung function testing) as well as Doppler Ultrasound to check on the circulation.




Iron Infusions

We run an iron infusion clinic to treat iron deficiency.  You will need to attend the doctor for a consultation, to have iron deficiency confirmed, and any underlying causes excluded.  You will then be asked to return, on a separate occasion, to have an iron infusion.  Further information is available from your doctor.
