Coronavirus Health Alert
The threat level of COVID-19 in South Australia is escalated. For the safety of our patients and staff, we encourage telephone appointments (where possible).
If a face-to-face appointment is required, it will be time-limited, and we request that all patients wear a face mask while in the clinic.
We also observe social distancing >1.5m and limit the number of patients in our waiting room.
If you have symptoms of the flu, a cold, or a loss of sense of smell or taste, then a COVID-19 test is necessary.
Please refer to the SA Health website for a list of COVID-19 clinics and testing centres.
If you are unwell and have respiratory symptoms, please ask for a telephone appointment with a GP, and a safe review will be arranged.
Please be assured that our clinic is COVID-19 safe.
The Government has restricted Medicare GP telehealth items to circumstances where a patient has an existing relationship with a general practice (i.e., the patient has visited a GP in the practice face-to-face in the last 12 months), other than for children aged under 12 months or patients who are homeless.
Please be aware that a private or gap fee may be incurred for telephone or video consults.

Consults By Telephone
Our doctors can perform a large proportion of routine care via the phone.
These measures are in place for your safety. We may also delay routine preventative health care, including skin checks, routine pap smears, chronic disease care plans, and routine physical examinations until risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic pass.

In most cases, telephone consults during the pandemic will be bulk-billed.
