Frequenty Asked Questions

What is integrated health care and how can it benefit me?
The current healthcare system in Australia is fragmented with many patients needing to see multiple practitioners across multiple sites. This increases the risk of error and poor patient health coordination.

Our team at Omnicare in Southbank Vic are all about understanding the holistic needs of a patient – not simply treating the illness or disease but by looking at the bigger picture. We provide easy and speedy access to tailored care across multi-healthcare disciplines in order to address the underlying causes and imbalances that affect a patient’s overall health. So while we are a mixed billing and bulk billing doctor in Southbank, patients can visit us for a range of treatments that help with every aspect of their physical and mental wellbeing.

How is a functional/holistic medicine approach favoured over traditional healthcare here in Southbank Vic?
The current or traditional approach to disease management here in Melbourne is to administer drugs to help manage the symptoms or condition of a patient without taking into account why the symptoms or disease has occurred.

So while traditional medicine asks, “what’s the best treatment for this disease?” holistic medicine asks, “what underlying imbalances or problems need to be addressed to return the body to a better state of health?”

Holistic medicine treats the roots of the problem whereas conventional mixed billing and bulk billing doctors in Southbank will treat the symptoms of the problem.

You mention that you can assist with prevention management – how does this work?
Here at Omnicare, we are, of course, highly committed to medical healing but a large part of what we do is illness prevention. Our aim is to help patients improve their health and remain healthy. As such patients have access to a range of allied healthcare professionals such as dieticians, psychologists, specialists in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and chiropractic care who will work with you to develop a personalised preventative wellness plan. This ensures that you remain in the best of physical and mental health and are therefore less susceptible to health problems in the future.
