With an established history of more than 15 years in Sydney's Upper North Shore, our GPs are focused on providing the highest level of personalised healthcare for their patients. In fact, to be able to do just that, was the very reason the Gordon Doctors (previously Gordon Medical Centre) was started on 10 Jan 2005.
Everyday, we strive to know, support and care for your long term wellbeing. The time we spend to deepen our understanding of your medical history may seem basic but it is an area we do not overlook. As we believe when it comes to healthcare, there is no 'one size fits all' situation.
You will experience healthcare in its intended form with our team of GPs, being Fellows of the RACGP who are continuously keeping in touch with developments in medicine. At the core of our administration team is a conviction of the importance of being friendly, caring and approachable.
Opening longer hours, offering extra services for the elderly, organising urgent results and the availability of an effective nursing team, are only some of the ways our doctors ensure you and your family are being catered for. We maintain full Practice Accreditation to ensure that we have achieved best practice.
Essentially, you and those closest to you, are our priority.
& Child/Teen Health
The first step is to find your GP whom you trust, believe and can confide in. You should find it easy to seek help from and to broach difficult subjects in the long term. Men, Women and Children/Teens have specific needs that your GP will look out for. For acute/urgent matters, it helps in a group practice. To consult your GP, it is a small step of making a standard appointment. If there are several issues, just request a long appointment.
Prevention is indeed better than cure in the medical world. Your GP will work with you to determine your specific approach to prevention taking into account many factors. Our practice runs a recall system that you can discuss with your GP. Childhood Vaccinations, Flu & Pneumococcal Vaccinations can be booked with RN who bulk bills. Your GP is the best person to check spots and can perform biopsy removals. Suspicious removals may be referred onto specialists for separation of the diagnosis and treatment functions.
Your GP cares for Mental Health in addition to Physical Health and integrates both aspects into a whole picture of the patient. In training and experience, your GP has cared for children through to the elderly in varied situations. Please feel comfortable to consult your GP even if it is not a physical issue. Acting as the starting point of your care, Mental Health Care Plans can be written that may involve other parties who are partly funded by Medicare. A long appointment will be needed.
Full Travel Vaccination Clinic
At least 6 weeks before travelling, or longer, if possible, travel vaccinations should be administered if required. Consult www.cdc.gov and then, it is best to make an appointment with your GP. Your GP may also review your drugs, health and provide documentation for travel if relevant. We stock all main travel vaccines including yellow fever for your convenience. Costs are your first doctor's visit and the cost of all vaccines (some require 3 courses). The 2nd and 3rd visit to the RN are bulk billed.
As a result of the high cost of infusions, our clinic is now offering this service at reasonable charges to our patients. With extensive Emergency experience, our RN will assist our GPs. Example of current available treatments are Iron, Rehydration, IV Antibiotics & Calcium for Osteoporosis.
Chronic Diseases like Diabetes, CHD, Asthma, once diagnosed, require close monitoring and regular management from your GP, nurse and possibly other health care teams. A Management Plan (Medicare funded) can be drawn up at the discretion of your GP. Your GP may also discuss with you steps to improve the condition. As we age, the role of the GP becomes more involved and essential. Your GP must be available to give comprehensive care and a long established history is none more important.
For convenience of patients, Laverty Pathology will operate a walk in centre awaiting license. A referral form is required from your GP. In the meantime, a DHM collection room is a few doors down from us.
Minor Surgery might include closing deep or large cuts, removal of foreign bodies, insertion of devices and other procedures. It is best to see your GP within a few hours of an accident. All our GPs have had many years of experience with superficial wounds and have achieved good results.
Health Assessments may be indicated bearing strong evidence of its benefits at certain intervals e.g. 45 years and annually after 75 years. These are currently fully covered by Medicare. Between 45-75 years, seeing your GP annually for a checkup is recommended (privately billed). Other frequently required Health Assessments are Pre-employment, Insurance, commencing University among others. These will require long appointments.
