Weekend Medical Services
We are open from 9am until 12 noon Saturday and Sunday for all accident injuries and urgent general consultations. No appointment is necessary – just come down and you will be put in queue for your consultation.
Accident and Injury Treatment
We have a purpose built accident and injury area for the majority of injuries which can occur around the home, at sporting venues or at work. No appointment is required for these injuries to be treated if they are of an urgent nature. Treatment of most of these problems is partially covered by ACC or your employer’s accident insurer. You will be required to pay a surcharge and sometimes a material fee.
General Medical Checks
We carry out a full range of medical examinations for life, medical and travel insurances, driver’s licences, immigration and diver’s medicals. When you make an appointment for one of these, please tell the receptionist so time can be allocated appropriately.
We are equipped to handle many forms of minor general surgery including the removal of moles, skin cancers, and ingrown toenails. These are all prolonged procedures and will need a separate appointment following an initial assessment visit.
Vasectomy is an almost painfree procedure for males who want permanent contraception. We perform this operation in our modern surgery for the cost of 400 Dollars. A discussion with the doctor before the operation is necessary, please book through our nurses.
Full Maternity Care
Care can be provided right throughout pregnancy from the initial pregnancy test, antenatal checks, delivery of the baby and post natal care. All doctors provide early pregnancy care and Dr Peterson provides full maternity care for registered patients only.
Our practice nurses can competently deal with your medical enquires, give advice, blood pressure checks, asthma treatment and follow up, diabetes checks and ear syringes and assess minor medical problems. They also take the blood tests in the centre, are qualified cervical smear test takers, perform skin allergy testing, do all the child immunisations and triage injuries. It is essential that you make an appointment if you wish to see the nurses directly.
