About

Gum Medical

After decades of working together to care for our communities through the Gumeracha District Soldiers' Memorial Hospital and their GP Practices, Gumeracha Medical Practice and Lobethal Medical Centre have joined forces to become Gum Medical.

Together, we continue to provide comprehensive, evidence-based medical care to help you and your family.

Gum Medical do more than simply treat illness. We can guide you with the knowledge and tools to achieve sustained improvements in your health and wellbeing. We use the latest scientific and medical knowledge to manage health issues, tempered with compassion and empathy, to understand how this impacts your life. We strongly believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and would love to assist you to with achieving your health goals.

At Gum Medical you will not receive quick fixes, or “5 minute medicine”. Our promise is to provide advice that is practical, sustainable and relevant to you and your lifestyle. Our doctors have decades of experience, and live in the communities, so understand the unique beauty and challenges that life in the Hills provides.

To minimize the time, you spend sitting in the waiting room we ask that you wait for your appointment outside or in your car. You can let us know that you have arrived by checking in on the HotDoc app, otherwise ring the doorbell or call and let reception know on 8389 1009. We will then contact you when the doctor or nurse is available to see you.

We do continue to offer face to face appointments where appropriate, but ask that, if appropriate and safe, you consider a telehealth appointment instead.
