Regular health check ups are important for everyone no matter your age and it is our priority to look after your health and well being, to find health problems before they happen. For us to do our job we encourage our patients to see us for regular health checks so we can monitor any changes by close physical examination and investigation with any tests that may be required.
Some insurance companies require you to have a health check when taking out certain types of insurance. In some instances the insurance company may just require a health summary or copy of your medical notes. These cannot be released without gaining your permission.
Chronic Disease Management
Many of our General Practitioners at DoctorLink specialise in managing chronic disease health conditions which can include high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, asthma, emphysema, arthritis, osteoporosis and many others. In some of these cases patients maybe eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Plan. This is a health summary of all your health conditions and what the current management plan is, which is bulk billed. If you are elligible for the Management Plan then you may also qualify for a Team Care Arrangement. This is also bulk billed and allows you up to 5 allied health visits to professionals such as a podiatrist, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, or dietician. These plans are reviewed every 12 months.
Skin Cancer Checks
Queensland has one of the highest skin cancer rates in the world. Most of the doctors at DoctorLink can perform skin checks and there are other doctors who have further qualifications to remove and dangerous moles and spots. If these blemishes are found early and removed it can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer.
