Health Assessments and Care PlansOur team of doctors can provide health assessments and care plans for all eligible patients. The purpose of this health assessment and subsequent care plan is to help identify any risk factors exhibited by a patient that may require further health management. In addition to assessing a person’s health status, a health assessment is used to identify a broad range of factors that influence a person’s physical, psychological and social functioning.
Minor SurgeriesOur team of doctors can conduct minor surgery including excision, biopsy or radiocautery (burning) of skin lesions (moles, lumps and bumps, skin cancers), wedge resection of the toenail or family planning procedures including Mirena and Implanon insertions and removals.
The procedures are usually carried out in our Treatment room and may involve an injection of local anaesthetic.

AcupunctureDr Esther Moses is a qualified laser acupuncturist. Low level laser therapy is the application of infra-red light to injured or damaged tissues to promote healing and give pain relief. Laser acupuncture is the stimulation of specific skin points which transmit electrical impulses along nerves to the spinal cord and brain, resulting in healing and general improvement in health and well being.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in China, although the Western world did not learn about it until the 1970s. The ancient Chinese believed that Qi ("chee") or life energy flows through the acupuncture channels or meridians to maintain homeostasis - a healthy balance - within the body. Stimulation of points along these meridians promotes healing to restore that healthy balance.
Today we can combine the benefits of Western knowledge with these Eastern techniques, and we can now use laser rather than needles.
