Hampstead Health Family Practice understands that sometimes female patients would feel more comfortable seeing a female Doctor for particular health concerns, or for cultural reasons. Which is why it is one of our goals to have more female Doctors available to our community.
In this short article, we will introduce each of our female Doctors, so you can learn a little more about them if you need their services in the future. As an added bonus, all of our doctors Bulk Bill, and we even have an after hours female Doctor available!
Another service we offer our female patients is a Pap Smear Clinic conduct by our specially trained Nurses.
Give us a call if you wish to book into this clinic as we can not take bookings online for this sorry.
