In response to the unfolding Covid situation in Victoria, NSW and the recent Queensland threat we would like to assure you that the team at Medicine on Second are still taking the health and welfare of our patients and staff very seriously.
We are still offering Telehealth appointments for any patients who are experiencing cold /flu like symptoms including sore throat, runny nose, fevers or cough or anyone who has come from these areas and needs a GP appointment.
We are still offering Covid-19 Screening at the front door where you will be asked a series of questions and have your temperature taken. These questions may change from time to time depending on what is happening in the community that may affect us i.e. rugby games. Your honest response to these questions will enable us to make the correct decision in whether you stay outside/sit in car or enter the clinic.
We are ensuring that our seating is meeting social distancing requirements and we ask that patients follow the arrows in our hallways to make this easier.
If patients arrive with a third party (husband, children, relatives) we will ask if they can remain outside if at all possible to limit our numbers.
We are regularly disinfecting surfaces and medical equipment.
Please use the automatic Hand Sanitizer available as you enter the clinic.
Together we will adapt to these unusual and unsettling circumstances, maintain high-quality health care, support each other and keep each other safe. We would like to thank each and every one of your for your support and co-operation.
DO YOU KNOW THAT AT MEDICINE ON SECOND WE PERFORM VASECTOMIES?
This procedure has been well studied for the past 40 years and is a safe and cost effective form of sterilisation. The procedure takes around 30-40 minutes and is performed in our clinic under a local anaesthetic. You will be requested to rest for 48 hours after and avoid any heavy lifting after the procedure.
We recommend that if you are considering getting a vasectomy you make an initial appointment with reception to gather more information about the preparation, procedure, aftercare and costs.
DID YOU ALSO KNOW THAT WE DO ALLERGY TESTING?
You will benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience at Medicine on Second regarding severe food allergies and anaphylaxis, hay fever, asthma and allergic eye conditions, eczema and dermatitis. We offer onsite allergy testing and oral immunotherapy. Please phone reception to make an initial consult to discuss any of these issues.
