The Doctors Huapai
Primary Healthcare Service
8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
The Doctors Huapai - formerly Huapai Family Medical Practice
We are a family centered surgery offering a full range of general practice services to you and your family.
Consultation Times are by appointment only. Our standard GP and nurse consultation time is 15 minutes. One or two issues can be dealt with per 15 minute visit. Please make a double appointment if you have multiple health issues to discuss - advise reception when booking.
We acknowledge that at times it can be hard to get an appointment on the day that you would like. This is due to practice patient numbers increasing and the rapid growth of new housing in the area. Please help us by booking routine appointments two or three days in advance and be willing to be flexible so that we can provide daily appointments for emergencies.
Please also let us know if you are unable to make your appointment so that we are able to offer it to someone else. Due to demand for appointments, missed appointments will be charged if we are not notified.
The Doctors Huapai is fully accessible for those with disabilities and in wheelchairs. We have ample parking behind the medical centre and disabled toilet facilities. Please let us know when booking an appointment if you will require any assistance on arrival.
