About Us

Established in 2009, Sunstate Family Practice is founded on the belief that a patient’s strong and lasting relationship with their family General Practitioner will lead to better health outcomes, and encourage patients to be active in their health care.
 
We are a private billing practice however, some doctors offer a concession rate to patients aged Over 65 years who hold a concession card (please check when booking your appointment). Children Under 16 years pay a $25 gap on consultations (extras incur additional costs including vaccines and procedures).
 
New patients are welcome and this includes referrals from our existing patients, as we believe word-of-mouth is the best form of referral and compliment.

RACGP GP REGISTRAR TRAINING PRACTICE

Sunstate Family practice is proud to be a GP training practice, supporting young doctors in the ways of being a good doctor.

Sunstate Family Practice is involved in the RACGP Registrar Training Program offering professional supervision and teaching to registrars in their final years of training. During a GP Registrar’s placement at Sunstate, they practice under the supervision of our Primary Supervisor Dr Ganter, and additional Supervisors Dr Vu and Dr Haller, who also enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience with young GP’s. Registrar training placements commence in January each year, which is when our registrars sometimes need to move on from Sunstate to complete their training at another practice.

APPOINTMENTS

We allow 15 minutes for standard appointments. To maintain our quality of service and minimise wait times, ensure you request a long appointment (30 mins) for more than one issue.

Please inform the reception staff if you are having a procedure, skin check, immunisation, full medical or if more than one of your family members need to be seen. To enable appropriate triage, please inform reception staff if you are unwell, experiencing chest pain or any other urgent problem.

Our practice goes to all lengths to ensure that appointments run on time but emergencies make this unavoidable at times.

Please advise our reception staff if an interpreter is required for your appointment.

Make an appointment by calling (07) 3207 7744 or book online using the system above.

If you have an urgent problem please let us know and we will fit you in accordingly.
