ABOUT US

OUR PRACTICE

 

For over 60 years, our family medical centre has supported a team of independent healthcare professionals working at Maxim Street.​ Doctors practising at Maxim Street are proud to continue a tradition of providing the highest standard of healthcare for you and your family.

Each doctors runs their own individual practice from the comfort of our modern and purpose-built facility. We are proud to partner and support them on delivering the highest standard of medical care. 

 

The doctors offer a variety of services including preventative care, immunisations, women's health, children's health, travel medicine and skin checks. We have other independent services including Australian Hearing and Laverty Pathology co-located on the premises for your convenience.

We are conveniently located just a few minutes' walk from West Ryde train station, with plenty of street parking. 

 

Our practice is open 6 days a week.

Communication Policy
 

In general, our practice does not accept requests over the telephone for prescriptions, referrals and results for pathology or imaging. It is recommended that you return to your GP to receive these. We not do accept any requests for clinical information or appointments via email unless pre-arranged with reception. 

We believe that it is better for your care that management of your health is provided in person, where your condition can be assessed and examined properly. 

 

Walk-Ins

We accept walk-in appointments on a case by case basis and subject to doctor availability. For any emergencies, head to your nearest hospital emergency department.
