Promising to deliver exceptional healthcare for all, Cornerstone Health’s newest centre, Our Medical in Caroline Springs, champions convenience and a high level of patient care above all else.

The new bulk billing clinic offers much needed improved access to primary healthcare in the west.

Experienced doctors Dr Romani Agaibi and Dr Mamdouh Melaik, formerly of St George Surgery, have joined the Our Medical team.

Practicing medicine in the west for over 30 years, Dr Melaik understands the importance of accessible and affordable healthcare in Melton.

“Inadequate access to bulk billing GPs is becoming more evident recently and so I look forward to offering the local community high-quality care, when they need it, in a contemporary centre where all services are located under one roof,: Dr Melaik said.

With no need for appointments at Our Medical, if a patient is unwell they can be treated by a doctor that day.

Representing a diverse community, Our Medical GPs speak a variety of languages including Farsi, Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, Tagalog, Macedonian and Lwo.

The centre also boasts co-located services including pathology, radiology and a treatment room all under the one roof, and since the centre’s GPs bulk bill, there’s no out of pocket costs for patients with a valid Medicare card.

Cornerstone Health’s managing director Henry Bateman said the opening of the group’s 13th centre will address a nationwide GP shortage that’s been felt strongly by the Caroline Springs community.

Mr Bateman said prior to Our Medical Caroline Springs opening, some locals have waited up to two weeks for an appointment with their doctors.

“At Our Medical our fundamental belief is that everyone deserves the right to quality healthcare when, where and how they need it, and so we have expanded into west Melbourne to meet the local community needs,” Mr Bateman said.

“Our Medical Caroline Springs promises to deliver a first-class, health service to the area, with efficient, quality healthcare.”

Located at 1/173 Caroline Springs Blvd, Caroline Springs, the centre is open until 10pm every day, including public holidays, weekends and the upcoming Christmas period.
