Local GP South Yarra, Toorak & Prahran Melbourne - One Point Medical

One point for all your primary care needs.

The essence of a GP is primary care, providing the role of a medical gatekeeper – the one point at which all of someones needs are managed all the time for a true and full medical experience.

Without this primary care role the pathway to proper health care is no where near as efficient and secondary (specialist) or tertiary (hospital) levels of health management are less effective.

One Point Medical provides cohesion and consistency for all of your health care needs.
