Services

Antenatal care

When you first learn that you’re pregnant, get in touch with a midwife or doctor as soon as possible so that you can start your antenatal (pregnancy) care. This will also help to make sure you receive maternity healthcare that takes into account all your health needs and preferences.

If you have special health needs, your midwife, doctor or obstetrician may take shared responsibility for your maternity care. This means they will all see you during your pregnancy. Let your doctor or midwife know if you have any special requirements for your antenatal appointments or in the planning for your delivery.

Iron Infusion

Iron infusions are a great way to replenish low iron stories and improve conditions such as anaemia, fatigue and lethargy. 

What is an Iron Infusion?
An Iron infusion is a procedure in which iron is delivered to your body intravenously, meaning into a vein through a needle. This method of delivering medication or supplementation is also known as an intravenous (IV) infusion.

Side Effects
It is recommended patients research about possible reactions, in particular about staining at the site of the infusion. It is important to be aware that there is a possibility of staining and this is often not listed as a possible side effect from the medication itself. The carboxymaltose product information notes a frequency of 1-10/1000.

Initial Consultation
It is common that most health professionals require an initial consultation to discuss this treatment option before arranging an Iron Infusion. Doctors at this practice require a consultation even if you have had a consultation with another doctor elsewhere.

All doctors located at Glenwood Medical Practice perform iron infusions.  Make an appointment today to discuss whether this would be suitable for you

Preventative health

It’s important that you visit your doctor periodically for preventative health checks, not just when you’re feeling unwell.

Preventative health checks are designed to pick up signs that you may have a greater chance of developing a disease in the future, and to diagnose diseases in their early stages, often before symptoms appear. This gives you the opportunity to start the treatment or to make the lifestyle changes needed to stop or slow the progress of the condition.

Family planning

The doctors at Glenwood Medical Practice offer women’s health checks, and are dedicated to managing health issues thoroughly in a comfortable confidential setting. Consultations may cover family planning, contraceptive advice, pregnancy care, fertility advice, health screening including pap smears, breast examinations & sexual health screening.

Please ensure you advise one of our friendly receptionists if you require a pap smear or have several medical conditions to discuss with the doctor so we may allow for a longer consultation.

botulinum toxin injection

Facial wrinkles and lines can be reduced with cosmetic injections into the skin. 

As we age, glabellar (frown lines) may appear on the forehead,  even at rest, portraying an angry or tired expression. 

Botulinum toxin cosmetic injections temporarily block the transmission of nerve signals to these muscles, preventing their contraction. The injections cause only minimal discomfort for a short period of time following the administration.

There is no downtime for the procedure. Improvement in the glabellar lines is visible within a few days of the injections and continues for a month. The results vary for each individual, with improvements usually lasting for four to six months.

Home Visits

Home visits are available for regular patients to our practice with substantial illness or mobility problems, subject to discussion with his/her doctor.

 

If you require medical assistance after hours please call  Sydney Medical Service (02) 8724 6300

Minor Surgery

All General Practitioners located within Glenwood Medical Practice are able to perform minor procedures.  The practice has a well-equipped treatment room and assistance from a registered nurse is available when required.

Minor procedures, such as incisions and suturing, require a longer consultation.

Please ensure you advise our reception staff upon making an appointment so that we can ensure adequate time is allowed with your doctor. Please discuss with the receptionist what fees may apply.
