A little bluish bruise that does not go away? This is a melanoma. It is important that you have regular skin surveilance. If you are aware of unfamiliar changes in some part of your skin, do not hesitate to consult your doctor.

 

Time for a Diabetic Assessment?

 

Do you know that good blood pressure control is crucial for good diabetic control? Diabetes is a condition that can affect multiple organs. If you are a diabetic, make an appointment with our practice nurse who will initiate a diabetic assessment. As part of the assessment, your blood and urine samples would usually be sent to pathology. Your doctor will then work with you to ensure all risks are covered. 

 

Have you had a bone density test?

 

Osteoporotic fracture can potentially change the quality of your life in an instant. If you are over the age of 70, you are eligible for a scan to determine your bone density.
