Minor surgery including circumcisions are available along with traditional Chinese acupuncture. As part of National Hauora Coalition PHO, we can keep our patient fees at a very affordable level. Our staff speak ten different languages including Mandarin and Cantonese.  

Walk In Service

We operate a walk-in service for acute problems.  This is designed to allow for on-the-day, urgent problems.  Patients will be triaged by the nursing team and then seen on the basis of medical need and then order of arrival.  For your regular, ongoing medical problems please make an appointment to see the doctor.  Drivers licensing medicals, WINZ medicals, diving, and insurance medicals cannot be accommodated in the walk-in clinic and will not be completed, 30 minute appointments are required for these medicals. 


Due to rising bad debt and ever increasing costs, from 1 February 2024 all visits must be paid prior to seeing the doctor.  

Debt Management

Unpaid invoices of over 90 days will be passed to a debt collection agency and additional fees will be applied by them.
