Welcome To Belmont Medical Practice
Belmont has been providing medical care to the Roseville community for over 100 years. The new Belmont Medical Practice is fully doctor owned and managed.
Our dedicated doctors are committed to providing proactive healthcare to help you and your family live healthy lives. Our doctors have post-graduate fellowships in General Practice (FRACGP) and are vocationally registered with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
They have extensive medical experience in all facets of general medicine and participate in continuing professional development. Some of our physicians are also specially accredited as mentors and examiners for the next generation of doctors.
Our Practice undergoes an ongoing voluntary, comprehensive accreditation with AGPAL to ensure we maintain our level of excellence.
Monday to Friday 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
For urgent medical attention outside of these hours please contact the National Home Doctor Service on 13 74 25, or your local emergency department.
To make an appointment please call 9416 1214 or and book at the reception.
Appointments are highly recommended and preferred, whilst walk-in patients will need to wait and will be fitted in if possible.
Please advise staff if you require a longer consultation time.
We do keep some appointments for urgent medical problems. Please discuss with staff if you feel that the reason for your visit is urgent.
Our doctors do NOT discuss results over the phone and a follow-up appointment will have to be made in order to discuss them with the doctor. This is to ensure confidentiality and maintain the best quality of care. We notify patients as soon as we receive your results. If the results are urgent, our receptionist will specify.
We are a private billing practice. Please see our Fee Schedule for more information.
For patients without Medicare, your consult will be billed on duration and complexity.

Why do we charge a fee for medical services?
At Belmont Medical Practice, we are dedicated to providing you and your family the highest quality of healthcare. From our friendly and our caring doctors (who provide thorough consultations and continuity of care with minimal waiting times), to our modern well-equipped facility, we hope to make seeking medical assistance as comfortable as possible.
As you may be aware Medicare rebates over the last 30 years have remained stagnant and never kept pace with the cost of living and the cost of delivering medical care. Due to significantly increasing practice overheads, a fee has been introduced. Any fees charged by Belmont Medical Practice go directly to providing you with high quality healthcare and equipment, and covering the increasing costs under a Medicare freeze environment.
We are conscious that some of our patients are unable to afford the fee and we intend to keep your out-of-pocket expenses to a minimum. Bulk-billing is available to patients to children under the age of 16.
Certain health plans and assessments may also be bulk-billed. Please enquire with the doctor for more details.
Pathology & Radiology
We offer prompt access to local pathology collection and X-ray/Radiology services.
We welcome any feedback that will help us to improve our service and take your concerns seriously. Please see our reception staff if you have any complaints or feedback.

Our doctors are experienced in managing the complex needs of older Australians. Comprehensive health checks help identify any health issues and optimise quality of life.
Areas assessed may include but are not limited to lifestyle, mobility, medication, nutrition, exercise, safety in the home, care arrangements and support networks.
Children’s health checks include monitoring development and normal milestones, immunisation and health promotion. A through health check can assess readiness for school and provide an opportunity for early screening for visual acuity, hearing, coordination as well as motor skills and other areas of development.
The Childhood Immunisations are an important part of keeping kids well and protecting against a range of preventable diseases and infections. All immunisations are administered by experienced GPs, who can also provide catchup schedules for children newly arriving in Australia or have missed immunisations.
Women’s healthcare may include but is not limited to regular PAP screening, breast checks, referral for mammography, family planning options, contraception, fertility counselling and management of menopause. Lifestyle plays an important role in all women’s lives, with healthcare focused on prevention to maintain optimum health.
Women are more susceptible to certain illnesses or conditions at different stages of their life and require checks accordingly. For example, you’re more likely to experience depression in your 20s, weight problems in your 30s and 40s, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease in your 50s.

The most common cancers in men in Australia are Skin Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Bowel Cancer, Lung Cancer. Thus our men’s health consultations focus on screening for and managing these conditions.
Specialised aspects of a men’s health consultation may also include Testosterone Replacement Therapy, Erectile dysfunction, STD screening and management of conditions that affect the male genital organ (example testicular swellings, infection).
While our doctors are experienced in all aspects of men’s health, they also understand that lifestyle plays an important role in all men’s lives and thus provide healthcare focused on prevention to maintain optimum health.
How often and when you need to have a check-up depends on your lifestyle and sexual activity. If you haven’t had a sexual health check in the last year or have any concerns for your sexual health, book an appointment with our GP for a private and confidential consultation.
Our health philosophy centres on preventative medicine. Our GPs conduct a thorough history and examination and order relevant tests and prepare a prevention plan tailored to your individual needs.
Annual check-ups after 40 years of age are recommended to assist in the early detection and prevention of common medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart and vascular disease, diabetes and cancers.
Other check-ups may include breast checks and pap smears for women and rectal prostate examination for men. The skin is also checked in addition to internal organ systems.
A holistic approach to healthcare is important including physical, social, spiritual and mental health. Mental healthcare may include but is not limited to medication management, regular counselling, referral to allied health providers as well as preparation and ongoing management of GP mental healthcare plans.
