Sapphire Clinic prides itself on providing comprehensive care to our growing families throughout all stages of their lives and offers a choice of doctors, both male and female.

We are a training clinic and we believe that this improves that standard of care provided in the clinic and contributes to a future of well-trained clinicians. As such we often have medical and nursing students sitting in with our doctors and nurses. If you do not wish to have the students present please inform the reception staff or your own doctor prior to your appointment. Our Practice provides our patients with preventative care and early case detection reminders.

Our Clinic provides comprehensive medical services for all ages and these include:

  • Preventative Medicine
  • Aged Care
  • Care planning for chronic disease management
  • Immunizations - child and travel
  • Minor Procedures
  • Family Planning
  • Womens Health
