“The Power of Community to Create Health is Far Greater than any Clinic or Hospital.”
— Mark Hyman
How We Can HelpMajellan Medical Centre offers increased access to Indigenous patients in partnership with the Indigenous community of Redcliffe and Deception Bay.
Dr Potocki holds a walk-in clinic on Wednesdays between 1-4pm. Transport to this clinic is available for qualifying adult patients through Queensland Health. If you need help with transport, please tell reception when you call for an appointment.
Indigenous patients are also welcome to book to see Dr Paul Johanson, Dr Potocki, Dr Cullen, Dr Savage and Dr Sydney-Smith for bulk-billed appointments at other times.
Indigenous patients are encouraged to have a “well-person check” each year to develop a personal strategy for good health. Those with chronic illness may qualify for the “PBS Close the Gap Co-payment measure”. This reduces the price of medications on the PBS.
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.
