Australian men are more likely than Australian women to get sick from serious health problems. Their mortality rate is also much higher. Men die in greater numbers than women from almost every non- sex-specific health problem. Overall, for every two women who die, three men die.
Our doctors understand that men have specific health issues which can vary with different stages of life. Consultations are conducted in a confidential and private consulting room and may cover health screening, prostate checks, blood screening, blood pressure checks and sexual health checks.
