Summerhill Medical Centre was established in 1995 to serve the people, families and businesses of Reservoir, Bundoora, Kingsbury, Preston, Mill Park, Macleod and Coburg with quality and convenient healthcare.
Due to the wonderful support of these communities, Summerhill Medical Centre has grown to 9 General Practitioners (male and female), 3 Practice Nurses (including a midwife), and a team of Allied Health Providers including dietitian, diabetes educators, physiotherapists, psychologist and acupuncturist/IVF acupuncturist. We have also teamed up with Eastern Respiratory Service to provide diagnostic testing as well as specialist medical consultation for our patients with various lung disorders.
In line with our ethos “Your Health, Our Focus”, we continue to provide affordable and accessible healthcare by bulk billing all patients and opening 7 days a week. We take appointments and also walk-ins as we believe that all patients should have access to a doctor when one is needed rather than when we can squeeze you in.
All of our GPs have over 10 years’ experience and have vast knowledge in Diabetes Management, Chronic Disease Management, Pregnancy and Women’s Health, Men’s Health and Travel Medicine (yes, we are Yellow Fever Accredited). Most of our doctors are also multi-lingual and can converse in Arabic, Cantonese, Greek, Indonesian, Malaysian, Mandarin, Tamil and Urdu.
Our Clinical team includes a Mid-Wife who is a recognised shared care provider with over 20 years experience working at Royal Women’s Hospital and Mercy Hospital. Expecting parents should see her for practical pre-natal and post-natal advice. Before seeing us or whilst waiting in our rooms you may also wish to browse some find useful links to online health resources and online health tests.
Our highly qualified, caring nurses have the expertise to assist you and your team of health practitioners to manage chronic conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, osteoarthritis, auto-immune diseases among others. Ask your doctor if you qualify for a chronic care plan and EPC to save you time and money.
