Charlestown Medical Centre, Charlestown
As a walk-in, bulk-billing centre it can get busy so there can be a bit of a wait. Usually tends to be a bit better at teh start of the week with more doctors on.
You can choose from one of the doctors that are on that day or just go next available.
My wait's have been anywhere from 5 hours down to 15 minutes (barely had time to get myself settled before my name was getting called).
There have been a few doctors that I havent been too fond of (but you get that anywhere) and have since found one particular one that I like and go back to each time, but its also good that if he isnt there on a day that I need to see a doctor, then there are still others that I can see and they can easily bring up my medical files.
They also have pathology, xray, dental, physiotherapists and dieticians at the same centre."
"I no longer go to Charlestown Medical centre the longest wait I had there was 5 hours and I had two little children with me 2 and 5yrs I now pay at another Charlestown surgery longest wait half an hour great service and get the same doctor who cares and knows my history."
All the doctors I have encountered here are very friendly, good at their jobs and seem to generally care, not just treat you like a number and try and get you in and out as quick as possible."
The major downside is the wait time to see a doctor - have sat and waited for over 4 hours at times. "
