Skin Checks + Skin Cancer Treatment
Australian's have the highest rates of skin cancer in the world with more than 70% of the population having a non-Melanoma skin cancer in their lifetime.
Living on the Surf Coast brings exposure to the sun and looking after your skin and monitoring for any new or changing skin lesions is vital.
We provide minor surgery for the majority of skin cancers we see, and refer on as needed to specialist services. Our doctors all have extra training in dermoscopy and skin cancer management.
Children's Health - including immunisations
Being parents ourselves we know how important it is, and sometimes how difficult it can be, in looking after the health of your children. We also know it is easy to second guess yourself and we encourage parents to bring in their little people if they are concerned.
Dr Stuart Jones and Dr David Corbet have both completed their Diploma of Child Health and all our doctors provide routine paediatric care from babies to teenagers. We provide services to support the first weeks of life andthrough all developmental stages, and be there to support your children becoming independent adults.
We encourage teenagers to see our doctors both with the support of their parents, but also on their own to empower them in managing their own health and well being.
Mental Health Care
With more than 1 in 5 Australian's experiencing mental illness in any year, our team are keenly aware of the need to support people who are struggling with their state of mind. Depression, anxiety and substance use disorder are the most common illnesses.
If you're finding things too hard, please make an appointment to see one of our GPs. We work from a bio-psycho-social approach and will work with you to find the right support in conjunction with psychologists and psychiatrists if necessary.
Dr David Corbet is trained to provide Opiate Replacement Therapy and supports people with prescribed and non-prescribed medication issues.
While we are not an Emergency Department, we are often the first port of call for urgent treatment. Our nurses will triage for urgency and where appropriate we will manage on site or transfer to Geelong if needed.
These services can include laceration assessment and suturing, wound care, burn care, undisplaced fracture management, concussion assessment, ECGs, asthma management and anaphylaxis.
We encourage people to call 000 for medical emergencies prior to attending our clinic. If you are uncertain call Nurse On Call 1300 60 60 24 who will guide you as to what to do.
Care as people age
With an ever growing older population, we are acutely aware of the difficulties that can face patients and their families when entering the later years of life. We encourage people to remain active and independent throughout their life span and will support you in maintaining your independence.
Dr Deborah Heng, Dr David Corbet and Dr Stuart Jones all provide services to residents at Anglesea Aged Care and utilise specialist consultants for support when necessary. There are limits to how many residents each doctor can support, but we attempt to maintain continuity with our regular patients if people do move into residential care.
Home visits are available by prior arrangement for regular patients who reside in close proximity to our practice, and whose condition prevents them from attending the clinic. Our reception staff can provide you with further information regarding fees, billing and home visit services.
Our doctors also participate in supporting patients under the Community Palliative Care team and will make home visits as necessary to support patients and their families.
