At The Doctor House we love mums, dads and their babies. We provide a comprehensive service including pre-pregnancy planning, supporting you through pregnancy and ongoing care for you and your baby after birth. We feel it is particularly important to take a holistic view of families with new babies on the way or just arrived and look after the mums and dads through this process so that they can be their best for looking after their child. We have tools, such as an ultrasound machine and Doppler, to help visualise and check on your baby as it develops and know when to send you on for more specialist investigations if warranted. We have extensive experience in all areas and access to a broad team of clinicians specialised in particular aspects of baby conception and development should you need them.
At The Doctor House we use the most effective tools for assessing and treating your skin for skin cancers. We have high quality dermoscopy and camera equipment, which, in the hands of an experienced doctor, has been demonstrated to be the most accurate and reliable method of detecting skin cancers. Dr House has trained in skin surgery with the University of Queensland and has decades of experience with removing skin cancers and other lesions. She is a careful and skilled surgeon but is always ready to refer complex or aesthetically risky surgery to specialist plastic surgeons. These skills she passes on to our younger doctors. Our nurses are also highly skilled at post-operative care and managing dressings for your best possible outcome.
Aviation Medicals (DAME on site)
Dr House is one of the few Designated Aviation Medical Examiners (DAMEs in the north) and our team can conduct all aspects of your medicals and submit them instantly on line.
Our team are expert with all manner of other medicals and health checks. Additional tests common to many pre-employment medicals can all be done on site including, spirometry (lung function), audiometry (hearing test), ECG (Electrocardiogram – heart function test), drug urinalysis and basic functional assessments.
All recommended health checks, such as 4 year old, over 75, 45 – 50 year old men, indigenous and others are regularly conducted by our expert team.
Once you are raising a child we provide comprehensive care, including a complete immunisation program, which is provided free if following the Queensland Health Immunisation Program schedule. We have access to electronic databases to obtain an immunisation history for a child and the ability to transfer immunisation data quickly to Medicare. We have extensive, up-to-date and evidence based information to ensure you can make fully informed decisions for your child’s well-being.
All childhood issues can be dealt with at The Doctor House and we fully understand that small children can get sick very quickly so we always try to make a sick child a priority appointment.
We can conduct all health checks at all stages of development and these services are all direct-billed until your child reaches 16 years of age.
The team at The Doctor House takes the management of chronic illness seriously, knowing that when chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, COPD or asthma are well-managed you can still expect a high quality of life. Our team have extensive experience and expertise in managing chronic disease but our ultimate goal is to provide you with the tools and ongoing support that you need to manage your illness yourself. We use long term planning (care plans), monitoring (e.g. cycles of care) and team care arrangements to ensure your care is organised and on track and you are able to access all services needed to maximise your health and well-being for as long as possible.
Our nursing team are excellent at coaching with diet, exercise and other lifestyle habits that allow you to maximise your health. We do most of your checks (e.g. INRs, blood sugar levels) and observations on site, prior to you seeing the doctor so that the benefits from your consultation are maximised.
Dr House regularly attends specialist conferences on travel medicine to ensure knowledge and skills for all doctors at our practice are up to date. Dr House and Dr Baade are qualified to administer the Yellow-fever vaccine, which requires special education and training. We also have a comprehensive range of vaccines in stock, including those for rabies (Lyssavirus) and Q-fever.
Our doctors and nurses are trained in providing you with information on how to stay safe and eat to stay well while traveling and are also expert in helping you to set up a first aid kit for your travels and provide the necessary documents for taking prescription medications with you.
