Medical Practice for Chronic Disease

The Australian Government Department of Health defines chronic disease as “illness that is prolonged in duration, does not often resolve spontaneously, and is rarely cured completely.”

Examples of chronic diseases include – but are not limited to:

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Osteoporosis

Our medical doctors provide risk assessments to determine risk factors present which take into consideration things such as family history, age, gender, smoking status and more. Ideally we work to prevent the onset of chronic diseases with regular health checks and positive lifestyle choices.

For those affected by chronic disease, we work with you to manage and treat your individual case to help maintain or improve your functionality and quality of life.

Please contact us if you would like more information about chronic diseases and would like to book an appointment at one of our medical centres.
