Dr Sonia Anwar consults at Health Hub Doctors fortnightly on Tuesdays

Are you tired of trying ineffective ASD therapies? Our objective is to help people who struggle with developmental and sensory processing issues get a new chance at life. MeRT Therapy can help to restore problematic regions of the brain to optimal neurological activity. Studies show that individuals with neurological disorders tend to have abnormal brain connectivity, specifically disrupted neuronal connections. As pioneers in the use of Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRTSM treatment), we deliver a non-invasive neuromodulation technology aimed at improving the way the brain processes information and restoring optimal brain activity. Through MeRTSM technology we are able to uniquely image and map the brain to reveal areas that aren’t communicating properly. Then we use the data to develop a personalized treatment approach to brain stimulation, aimed at optimizing the brain’s activity to the individual’s optimal frequency.

MeRT treatment involves target neuromodulation that is:

Patient-specific | Non-invasive | Non-pharmaceutical

That look on your child’s face when they are now able to do something that they previously were unable to do, that feeling of accomplishment and pride, now that is something that no parent should miss out on!

Please call 1300 428 228 for further information or to book an appointment.

May 13, 2020 COVID-19

Is it safe to visit our clinic?

Your health and safety is our main priority. We understand that patients may feel hesitant to visit the clinic for their general health care needs however, rest assured we are taking all precautions to ensure the safety of all patients.

If you present to our clinic with any respiratory symptoms or fever, you may require treatment for your condition as well as require COVID-19 testing in our dedicated respiratory clinic. You will not be able to enter the building via the main entrance but will be directed to our respiratory clinic.

Our dedicated respiratory clinic is located in a separate part of the building to our normal GP clinic which means that general patients have no contact with respiratory patients.

If you visit our clinic and have no respiratory symptoms or fever, have not travelled overseas and have not been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, you will be allowed to enter our building as normal. It's really important to keep up-to-date with your regular health care during this time - whether face-to-face or via telehealth.

 

What are the symptoms of a respiratory illness?

Symptoms of respiratory illnesses include fever, sore throat, coughing, shortness of breath and runny nose. If you present to our clinic with any of these symptoms, you will be directed to be seen in our dedicated respiratory clinic.

 

What will I be asked at the door?

When you present to the front of our building you will:

  • Be greeted by a friendly staff member
  • Be asked questions about the presence of respiratory symptoms (including sore throat, runny nose, cough, cold, fever, shortness of breath), recent overseas travel, contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case
  • Have your temperature checked

You will then be either directed to our dedicated respiratory clinic or enter the clinic as normal.

 

What happens if I do not disclose truthful information in regards to respiratory illness?

If you provide false information to a staff member or health professional in this facility, you may face criminal or civil prosecution. This includes information about the presence of respiratory symptoms and contact with COVID-19.

 

How do I know if I require COVID-19 testing?

If you present with any respiratory symptoms, recent overseas travel or contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case you will be directed to our dedicated respiratory clinic. The doctor will then decide if you require COVID-19 testing.

 

How will I receive my COVID-19 results?

Once you have been tested for COVID-19, you will receive your results within 24-48 hours via a phone call or text message. If you do not receive a phone call or text message after this time, please call us on 5322 4900.

Please note, we have a high volume of COVID-19 results and we are trying our very best to give these results back within the given time. We appreciate your patience.

 

Can I still attend your clinic if I have been cleared for COVID-19 and still have respiratory symptoms?

If you have been cleared for COVID-19 and still have ANY respiratory symptoms, you will not be allowed to enter the normal GP practice. If you need to be seen, you will be directed to our respiratory clinic. Otherwise, please stay home until symptoms clear.

 

Why do I need to be seen in the respiratory clinic if I've already been cleared for COVID-19?

Although you may have been cleared for COVID-19, your respiratory symptoms could be a sign of another respiratory illness. To protect our staff and patients, you will be directed to our respiratory clinic to avoid contact with patients entering our normal GP clinic.

 

Why do we separate respiratory illness from the rest of the clinic?

We understand that patients may feel hesitant to visit the clinic for their general health care needs however, rest assured we are taking all precautions to ensure the safety of all patients.

Our respiratory clinic is run separately to our normal GP clinic so that patients visiting our normal GP clinic have no interaction with these respiratory patients. All patients are screened as they enter the building to check that they have no respiratory illnesses, have not travelled overseas recently or have not been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case.

 

Why is everyone wearing masks in the respiratory clinic?

When directed to the respiratory clinic, you will be asked to put on a mask. All patients are wearing masks to avoid the splatter and spread of coughs/colds in the clinic and to make patients aware to not touch their face.

All staff in our respiratory clinic are in full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including masks, gowns, goggles and gloves.

 

What cleaning protocols have we increased during this COVID-19 pandemic?

Patient health and safety is our highest priority. We have increased our cleaning protocols including regular cleaning of door handles, rooms, equipment, chairs, screens and all surfaces. We are also supplying hand sanitiser in all waiting rooms and in the clinic, and are promoting proper hand hygiene.

 

How can I protect myself and others?

  • Practise social distancing - we have adequate signage to promote social distancing measures. Please keep a 1.5m distance between yourself and others. If you are from the same household, you may sit together.
  • Practise proper hand hygiene
  • Only bring essential people with you to each consult

 

Is there an alternative to be seen by a doctor, without coming to your clinic?

Yes, we are offering bulk-billed telehealth consultations to all patients (excluding new patients). Please call us on 5322 4902 to book a telehealth consultation or book an appointment online via www.healthhubdoctorsmorayfield.com.au/book-online 

 



May 1, 2020 Health

We would like to assure patients that it is still safe to visit our clinic and that your health and safety is our highest priority.

To ease some concerns, we've created a walkthrough which shows exactly what happens when you first enter our building, whether you are being seen in the respiratory clinic or through our normal GP clinic.

If you present to our clinic with any respiratory symptoms or fever, you may require treatment for your condition as well as require COVID-19 testing in our dedicated respiratory clinic. You will not be able to enter the building via the main entrance but will be directed to our respiratory clinic.

Our dedicated respiratory clinic is located in a separate part of the building to our normal GP clinic which means that patients have no contact with respiratory patients.

If you visit our clinic and have no respiratory symptoms or fever, have not travelled overseas and have not been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, you will be allowed to enter our building as normal. It's really important to keep up-to-date with your regular health care during this time - whether face-to-face or via telehealth.

Take a look at our walkthrough below.



April 24, 2020 Health

We would like to remind everyone that we are still open for business for face-to-face appointments and telehealth.

We understand that some patients are feeling anxious about attending their GP clinic, and may be missing important visits because of concerns around COVID-19.


It's really important to keep up to date with your regular health care during this time - whether this is face-to-face or via telehealth.

Please take note of the following:

  • We are open for business, and patients should not be afraid to keep their appointments with their GP for preventative health, or management of a chronic condition
  • People living with chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma or respiratory conditions need to keep up with their regular health care to prevent their condition getting worse. Neglecting regular health check-ups to manage a chronic disease can result in serious health issues down the track.
  • Parents of young children and babies should also ensure that their children receive their scheduled vaccinations and developmental checks
  • The risk of contracting COVID-19 while visiting the doctor in person remains low. Our respiratory clinic is run separately to our normal GP clinic so patients visiting our normal GP clinic have no interaction with these respiratory patients. All patients are screened as they enter the building to check that they have no respiratory illnesses, have not travelled overseas recently or have not been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case.
  • Patients who are due for regular check-ups should contact us to determine whether they should attend face to face, or arrange a telehealth appointment.

Please note, if you present to our clinic with any respiratory tract infection, fever or any of the listed symptoms (cough, cold, sore throat, runny nose etc.) you will be seen in our respiratory clinic.
