At Summers Avenue Family Medical Practice, we are committed to offering guidance and support to help you manage these risks. Our services include thorough skin checks and assistance with any health concerns you may have.

Empowering Through Screening Programs
Australia has established screening programs for specific cancers, such as breast cancer, cervical cancer, and colorectal cancer. These programs play a vital role in early detection, making treatment more effective. If you're uncertain about your status with national cancer screenings, consider scheduling an appointment with your doctor to ensure you are up to date.
