General Practice is such a varied and expansive part of what our doctors and nurses do here at Doctors Corner. It encompasses so much it cannot be described as any one thing. Having a practitioner who is always engaged in learning, keeping up to date with the latest in health care, one who understands that every person and the approach to their healthcare is different, this is why we know that we are able to always give our patients the very best advice.
Pediatrics makes up a large percentage of general practice given that children and babies are usually seen most by a general practitioner in their formative years. Our practice is here to deliver exceptional child health care, we offer childhood immunisations, diet and feeding advice, general health checks, behavioural issues, mental health, chronic disease management along with general advice. We try to make every effort to accommodate sick children on the day, so please call if there are no bookings online.
Australians and most importantly West Australians are subject to the harsh rays of the sun. Here in Perth, we are lucky to be blessed with an inordinate amount of sun, yet more often we forget about the harm that the sun can cause if we forget to cover up, or more importantly slip, slop, slap. Here at Doctors Corner, we offer skin checks that will expose the more damaging affects that the sun has had on your body, this can be the areas that most people tend to forget, including ears and also the head area. If required, our doctor can also perform biopsies and minor procedures.

Here at Doctors Corner we are able to consult with patients who suffer from Chronic Pain. There are many ways in which people deal with Chronic Pain. We have a holistic approach and engage our patient in the care. Not everyone is the same and therefore the treatment may differ patient to patient. What works for one may not necessarily work for another. Alternate treatment is also considered, and our doctors are very open minded around the Cannabis consulting and prescriptions. Patients will need to remember that our doctors will not prescribe drugs of addictions.
Chronic Disease Management
Doctors Corner is pleased to advise that we are enthusiastic about helping you with your chronic care. Most people do not understand what this is and why there is the need to manage it. Chronic Disease sounds ominous but it is more often broken down into much simpler terms, Osteoporosis, Diabetes, Asthma, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), Cystic Fibrosis, Heart Disease, Cancer to name a few. Our approach is to engage a care plan with allied health professionals to help if your care plan requires. This plan is to help you manage your illness and the ultimate goal is to minimise the risk of hospitalisation, encouraging you to be on top of your health at all times and to be as compliant as you can. In this we as a team can achieve the best outcome and help you to live your best life.
