You need iron for many important processes inside your body, especially for making haemoglobin – the oxygen-carrying protein in your blood.
How We Can HelpIron is an essential element required for the oxygen-carrying capacity of haemoglobin in red blood cells around the body and plays an important role in many other vital processes in the human body.
Iron deficiency symptoms can include: fatigue, weakness, pale skin, shortness of breath, headaches, disrupted sleep, hair loss, unusual cravings, tingling or crawling feeling in the legs, tongue swelling or soreness.
Intravenous Iron Infusions can be used for the treatment of patients with iron deficiency, when oral iron preparations are ineffective or cannot be tolerated. The aim of the therapy is to replenish body iron stores and to remedy anaemia, a reduced level of haemoglobin due to iron deficiency.
A blood test is required prior to administration to determine infusion requirements. Ask your doctor if you are concerned about iron deficiency and available treatments. Infusions are performed here by Dr Harjinder Kaur.
Appointments are essential. Usually 15-minute appointments are allocated. If you require a longer appointment, please inform the receptionist when making your booking. In the exception of an emergency, if we are not informed that you require a longer appointment it may be necessary to make another appointment to deal with all your problems.
We try to run on time but this is not always possible and we apologise for any delay. We also encourage patients to ring ahead of their appointment to check the doctor’s progress, we understand your time is important. We do keep a few appointments available for urgent problems each morning and afternoon.
Please advise the receptionist if more than one person in your family needs to be seen, as more than one appointment time is usually required.
Complete medical checkups, insurance, aviation medicals, driving, pre- employment medicals and surgical procedures will always require a longer appointment. Please advise what type of medical you need performed when booking.
Online bookings are available through Health Engine.
