At Carina Medical and Specialist Centre our family medicine practitioners provide comprehensive care to all members of the family regardless of age or gender. We’re here to help you and your family with all of your medical concerns, including young children’s health.
A family doctor is one who takes care of your whole family. Many doctors will train in a specialty area of medicine however, family doctors are trained in all areas of medicine. They care for you and your family through all stages of life, regardless of age or gender. This includes care for physical, mental, and emotional health. Our family doctors get to know our patients to build a caring relationship with you and your family. They will listen and document your health history which helps them to better understand how to help you make good decisions about your health.
Our ethos is to provide our patients with friendly and approachable doctors who are committed to excellence in patient care and health management, and who you can trust to look after all your family’s health needs. We can help you and your family with all of your medical concerns, including young children’s health and family planning. Our doctors and nurses are very experienced in treating babies and children and, together with our experienced team of allied health team members, we provide quality care to our youngest patients and support to their parents.
Your family doctor is responsible for diagnosing and treating both acute and chronic illnesses. They also provide routine health screenings and counselling on lifestyle changes. This helps prevent health issues before they develop. If you require care from a specialist then your family doctor will refer you to a specialist. A family doctor will help coordinate all aspects of you and your family’s care.
