Freemans Bay Medical Services
Freemans Bay Medical Centre works hard to provide the highest quality general practice.
We recognise the importance of health promotion, disease prevention and lifestyle balance for long term well being.
General Medical and Preventative Healthcare
All of our doctors can provide a full range of general practice consultations. We allocate 15 minutes for consultations which is generally enough time to deal with one major or two minor issues. If you have a number of complex issues, you will need to book a double appointment. We do our best to run to time but the unpredictable nature of our work means that sometimes there may be a wait.
Well Child Care
The Freemans Bay Medical team are very experienced with children and their particular needs.
We welcome new babies to our practice and generally meet them for the first time at their 6 week consultation when the Doctor will thoroughly check their health and progress followed by their first round of immunisations with one of our nurses.
At this time the nurse will explain the childhood immunisation schedule and answer any other questions new parents might have.
Minor Accident Care
We provide assistance for most minor injuries and accidents. Our nurses provide telephone advice, work closely with our doctors in all aspects of patient care, and are skilled in wound care management.

Some of our doctors offer minor surgery, which is carried out in our dedicated procedure room. Costs will vary, so please talk to your doctor about your procedure first.
Two of our Doctors - Dr Maya Steeper and Dr Alison Copland currently fit IUDs. This procedure involves making an initial appointment with one of these doctors after which the nurse will book the actual procedure and discuss costs.
We will contact you if your test results show something wrong - we do not routinely contact you with normal results. If you are concerned about your test results, please make an appointment with your doctor.
See our travel medicine page for information.
Skin Checks - Dermoscopy
Unfortunately, skin cancer is very common in New Zealand. A spot check should be carried out every one - two years, especially if you are fair skinned. New skin spots that seem unusual should be checked as soon as possible. Dr Susie Moller and Dr Christine Forster are trained in Dermoscopy. Please book a 30 minute appointment for this.
