In Marsfield we’ve got one of the best medical centres that any community could ask for. But surprisingly it’s a bit of a well-kept secret. It’s almost, and please note the almost, impossible to find their number to call and book an appointment with a GP. However, I am quite resourceful when I need to be! So before I tell you more, here is the phone number, 02 9812 3944. There, at least now you have it!
A couple of days ago I wanted to see a doctor for a referral to a specialist. You can’t get to see a specialist without this referral. My problem was that I couldn’t find the phone number to call to make an appointment with a GP. And I spent a good deal of time ringing around trying to get through to the clinic. I was quite taken aback that I just couldn’t find the right contact number. If you go to their website it’s practically impossible to get the right contact details.
Macquarie University Hospital and Clinic is a five-storey building crammed with the latest and greatest expertise with specialists from every conceivable field that you could think of.
Even though it was a bit of a challenge to get through to the clinic, don’t despair as the Macquarie University Hospital and Clinic is a god send to Marsfield, literally. There are no endless queues and horrendous waiting times, and it’s certainly not crowded like the medical facility at the shopping centre. There are doctors in abundance specialising in fields that you’ve probably never even heard of. So whatever the issue, this is the place to go.
The waiting rooms are really well laid out and user friendly and they’ve got clean toilets too. The support staff are fantastic and no joking, it’s as if they were genuinely pleased to see me and that I’d come for a visit. They’ll greet you with a smile, which is refreshing. I certainly haven’t experienced that at a normal medical centre, so I was pleasantly surprised.
The doctors are just as great; they’re quite happy to spend time with you and have a chat…none of this in out, feeling like a number. This is what medical care should be all about – you actually feel like you’re being taken seriously and you’re being cared for in the right way.
Macquarie University Hospital and Clinic is now my clinic of choice. And there’s plenty of free parking on Talavera Road.
Have you visited this clinic? If you have I’d love to hear your experiences and if it was as good as mine.
