Dr Baratosy releases new book on medical cannabis


Premier Peter Gutwein has promised to pass legislation as of the 1st of July 2021 that will allow medical cannabis to be prescribed by any GP (including us)! Hopefully the Premier comes through with the goods on time!


Book release

Dr Peter Baratosy has written a new book on medical cannabis, densely packed with information and illustrating the latest advances in scientific research in the area.


The book is quite detailed and looks at a wide range of potential applications for medical cannabis including helping with immune regulation, inflammation, pain management, insomnia, mental health, cancer, various organ systems, and metabolic conditions.


Please call reception on 6224 6717 to inquire about the book or write an email after hours to info@gorestreetmedical.com.au



Welcome to our new nurse Emily


A warm welcome to our new practice nurse, Emily, who joined us in May. Emily Snape received her Bachelor of Nursing in 2012 and went on to continued studies at the Royal Children's Hospital, Sydney. She has experience in paediatrics, oncology, respiratory and infectious disease management and acute aged care. She has also studied meditation for over 6 years, going on to become a teacher at one of Sydney's top meditation schools, teaching people to independently ease symptoms of stress-related ailments.


She has an interest in complementary medicine modalities and believes healing starts with the individual feeling empowered. She continues to study at the Australian College of Complementary Medicine to refine and enhance her ability to provide excellent and effective care to the community.


Availability of Appointments

We have time available for patients that qualify for bulk billed sessions with Emily to complete Enhanced Primary Care Plans for chronic medical conditions, and allied health referrals to help manage those conditions. Emily is also available for vitamin infusions. She can also provide bulk billed annual health assessments for patients over 75.


Dr Reinhard Hemm has opened up two additional half days in response to the increase in demand that we have been experiencing, and appointments are currently available. Call reception on 6224 6717 to book an appointment.
