Why choose Carnegie Medical Centre?
Years of Experience
Carnegie Medical Centre has both male and female GP’s. Members of the team come from a variety of cultural backgrounds and ages. Together the GP’s possess a broad range of experience and special interests including Sports Medicine, Mental Health, Management of Chronic Disease (including diabetes), Women’s and Men’s Health, Paediatric medicine, antenatal care and Geriatric Medicine.
The GPs, nurses and administration staff are committed to and enjoy training medical students. We are a registered training practice and have affiliations with Monash University and Melbourne University. We are also very proud to be an accredited training practice for medical registrars with the RACGP General Practice Training Program. We feel that our role in educating and supporting the training of the next generation of GP’s is an extremely important one.
Friendly and Exceptional Staff
At Carnegie Medical Centre we have a dedicated and long standing reception team. Our low staff turnover is another indication of the type of environment that we aim to provide for our patients also. Our staff are able to develop relationships with many of our patients and their families over many years. Many of our patients are known to our reception staff by name and by sight. We strive to provide a friendly and personal service to our patients.
Our clinic provides free street car parking, disabled access for both staff and patients and a comfortable waiting room. We are lucky to have a pathology service directly across the road, several pharmacies just a short walk away and many imaging facilities located close to our clinic.
We have an excellent Recall and Reminder system which ensure that our patient’s receive relevant preventative care. Our reminders are sent out regularly via text message and email (or letter). If you do not wish to participate in this service please inform your doctor.
