Illawarra Medical Centre
Illawarra Medical Centre is a family medical practice based in Ballajura, Western Australia, providing a wide range of health care services for patients.
We offer bulk billing to Pensioner Concession card holders, Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) card holders and children 16 years and under for weekday appointments.
Walk in appointments are currently available for medical emergencies only.
As the home of SmartVax, we use SMS and smartphone technology to actively monitor the vaccine safety of our patients.
Appointments with an Accredited Practising Dietitian are available every Tuesday at our practice, to discuss a range of dietary related health concerns you may have
We offer a comprehensive range of dermatology services, including skin cancer checks, mole screening and general screenings.
Skin cancer and skin checks are available every Tuesday morning with Dr Dhruva Ramachandran.
Illawarra Medical Centre provides Medicare funded health assessments for those aged 45-49 years old, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and people aged over 75 years.
MyMedicare is open to Australians with a Medicare card or a DVA Veteran Card who have had 2 or more face-to-face appointments at our practice in the past 24 months.
Registering with MyMedicare is completely voluntary and free and your quality of care at Illawarra Medical Centre will not be impacted if you choose not to register.
We’ve recently introduced a new pre-screening questionnaire for appointments at IMC, to help us better understand our patients’ medical concerns and provide a better service to our patients.
The questionnaire is entirely optional, so you can simply ignore it if you wish. It does, however, provide your doctor with information prior to your appointment that can then be discussed in more detail on the day, enhancing your face-to-face time with your GP.
If you have any questions or concerns, please speak directly with your GP at your appointment or contact us on (08) 9208 6400.
