Prendiville Ave Medical Centre is a private practice owned and run by our doctors.
We are an accredited General Practice and also train medical students from UWA, and Registrars.
We operate an appointment system.
If more than one person from your family wishes to see the doctor at the same time, please ensure an appointment is made for each family member.
Most consultations are for 15 minutes. If you think your problem is a complex one (multiple problems, pre-employment, insurance or superannuation medicals) please advise the receptionist so that a longer appointment can be booked for you.
We will always try to fit in any urgent cases or emergencies. Please telephone immediately or come straight to the surgery.
Please ensure you contact the surgery to cancel your appointment if you are unable to attend.
Missed appointments will be charged a fee of $30.00.
