Travel Medicine
We are an approved vaccination centre for Yellow Fever vaccine. We are also able to advise and administer  all other required travel health medication/ vaccines. 
Antenatal Care

 

Dr Roberts is accredited to provide

 

antenatal shared care in association

 

with Monash, Dandenong and Mercy

 

Maternity Hospitals. This enables most

 

antenatal visits to be done at our

 

rooms rather than the hospital and

 

investigations can be arranged locally.

Women's Health

Rosemarie Roberts is a nurse

with accreditation as a pap test provider.Appointments with her can be arranged on Monday pm, Tuesday am or Friday pm

Dr Roberts also offers a full range of women's health services.

 

Men's Health

 

Men's health is obviously of equal importance. The emphasis is on prevention of heart attack , stroke, diabetes and bowel cancer as well as the management of depression and prostate issues.
 

Drug and Alcohol 

 

Opiate replacement significantly reduces  the risk of overdose and infection in   heroin users and increases the likelihood of  them  returning to work. It also reduces crime and risk of Hepatitis and HIV virus spread to the community. 

Dr Roberts is an approved methadone and buprenorphine prescriber. There is a severe shortage of methadone prescribers and we have to limit  the number of patients accepted . Assisting with alcohol- related problems is also part of our practice.
