Most successful outcome for patient at GP clinic will be (1) for long term patients well known to doctors who have patient's accurate and comprehensive medical history (2) affordable care (i.e. bulk billing/discounts offered for low income) (3) competent Doctors providing timely (no long waiting times) thorough consults/treatment (4) good Doctor / patient relations including consideration of social/economic/mental health issues (5) efficient and courteous admin staff (6) geographic proximity, car-parking facilities, closeness to public transport. For me, Ipswich Road Medical Centre IN MY CASE has provided all these very well, altho in regards (1), (4) has improved after I became a long term patient. Some patients "doctor shop" - visit more than 1 clinic. I have never done that in recent years, you can't expect the best care for a Doctor you've never or regularly do not see, and who does not have your complete medical record (talk in Australia of making digital records accessible for any clinic for any patient altho don't know where this is at - privacy issues obviously of paramount concern). 1 or 2 doctors at this clinic may rush patients through too quickly, and generally GP consultations are fairly short (though not terribly so), and this is standard practice across Australia. However, I can say my regular Doctor at this clinic is thorough, competent, and easy to get to see with a same day appointment. On rare occasions I can't see my regular Doctor at this clinic I have been able to see another Doctor, and been impressed with several of the other doctors at this clinic. Perhaps one or 2 can be a bit brisk and too quick in their consults, but they do provide basic care very effectively I have found.
