Looking forward to treating the good people of Whitsundays this week.
There hasn’t been a female doctor at this practice before so if you’ve been putting off your smear test or you’re after advice on family planning, a skin check or even cosmetic injectables, now’s your chance to book in.
Heart disease is one of Australia’s largest health problems with over 1.2 million people being affected. Risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol being overweight, alcohol and smoking.
This month is all about raising awareness of having a healthy heart ❤
For more information and advice on how you can reduce your risk of heart disease, come and see me in clinic today.
If you’re aged between 45 to 49 years old you may be eligible for a free health assessment to help prevent developing a chronic disease.
What does this involve?
A full medical history and examination of your heart, lungs, a blood pressure check and ECG if needed.
The health assessment is for patients who are at risk of developing a chronic disease.
But what is a chronic disease?
This is a condition that has been, or is likely to be present for at least six months, including (but not limited to) asthma, cancer, cardiovascular illness, diabetes mellitus, a mental health condition, arthritis or a musculoskeletal condition.
Drop by my clinic today for your health assessment.
Take care & stay healthy 😊
