Fountain Street General Practice opened in Alexandria in January 2011. In addition to providing general medical care, our doctors have special interests including paediatrics, women’s health, men’s health, antenatal care, sexual health, skin cancer, mental health, travel medicine, preventative health, aviation medicine and HIV medicine. We also provide palliative care as the need arises. In addition we have a paediatrician and psychologists working from our rooms.
We have full time nursing cover during the week and Douglass Hanly Moir pathology collection rooms operating from 7.30am to 3.30pm. Our medical records and booking system are fully electronic, and the practice is private billing. We maintain our accreditation to meet the strict standards set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
Fountain Street General Practice is a very busy private practice that operates by appointment only. When making an appointment it is often helpful if you can give our reception staff an idea of what you are coming in for as some consultation problems may require special consideration and extra time. An sms reminder is sent to your mobile to confirm your appointment the day before, but if you have not answered the sms we will call to confirm your appointment. As we get very busy, if you cannot keep an appointment, please call and advise reception as soon as possible, so that we can offer that appointment to someone else.
To help suit the needs of our patients we offer different type of consultations
- Standard appointment – 15 minutes (1 issue)
- Long appointment – 30 minutes (new patients or >1 issue)
- Prolonged appointment – 45 minutes (complex)
- 1 hour appointment
Our practice is located within purpose-built premises within The Fountain, a renovated factory warehouse (which has been at various times a paint factory and a whale processing plant). We have 9 consultation rooms, and a large treatment room for procedures and to treat and monitor unwell patients before transfer to hospital. Our waiting room is spacious with adequate seating, and contains a variety of up to date magazines and other reading material. There is also a children’s play area with some toys and books.
We have state-of-the-art medical equipment, including ECG, spirometry, cryotherapy and dermatoscopy, and we are fully computerised. Disabled access is via a lift, and a disabled toilet and shower is available. A baby change table is available for use if required.
Within The Fountain there is a dentist – 150 Degree Dental – and a cosmetic medical practice – Zecca. We are also lucky enough to have Don Campos cafe downstairs, for all our coffee needs, in addition to Bread & Circus Wholefoods Canteen.
