Our general practice is open to everyone. No matter your gender, age, sexual orientation or other, Dr Issma Katib is here to discuss your individual needs and concerns to facilitate the best health outcomes for you.
Whether you want to first employ only a natural approach, or need a little added support through medication we are here to tailor the management plan to your needs. Our in-house psychologists also provide support for things like anxiety, social anxiety, depression, addiction, grief counselling.
We also like to look at baseline hormonal imbalances and address the nutritional status with help from our nutritionist as well.
From libido or weight gain concerns to heat intolerance, brain fog and lethargy, hormonal imbalances may not always show up clearly in a typical blood test. By having a team of experienced health practitioners we are able to treat symptoms and match medication and doses according to a patients individual needs.
Whether you need forms filled out, a repeat referral letter for a stable condition, overseas immunisations uploaded to AIR/Medicare or insurance forms completed, this can be done during a private consult or without the patient present at a fixed rate per unit of time.
