I Need a Women's Health Check

I'm Visiting Melbourne
Nothing can be more frustrating than being stuck somewhere without an important medication or getting ill on vacation.
If you have forgotten your medication and need a prescription or require assistance with something while you are away from home, we are open 7 days a week and after hours to assist you.
You can book an appointment via our booking application or call ahead if you need more information.
I Need a Sexual Health Check
Our friendly staff are here to help, not to judge.
Sexual health checks are a reality of modern life and if you are sexually active it should be a no-brainer to check both symptoms and potential risks.
Many STIs are silent and cause no symptoms.
Some people find it difficult to talk about this, we are happy to explore this no matter your preferences or practices.
I Study in Melbourne
I am an international student
Being away from home can be both challenging and exciting. Here at QV Medical we aim to make your time in Melbourne less of a drama if you find yourself in need of medical attention.
Sometimes unexpected things happen and this can add stresses at the worst possible time. We have access to interpreters in any language and are open at times suitable to the the lifestyle of a student.
Our services are covered by overseas student health cover and claiming is very easy. All major health insurers have a mobile app that allows you to claim your consultation on the go. Simply photograph your receipt and upload it into the mobile app.
I am a local student

Please make sure you bring your student card and photo ID with you to your session. We may ask for verification that you are enrolled in an undergraduate degree in the form of a confirmation of enrolments letter (COE).

I Need Contraception
With a number of different contraceptive methods available, it can be hard to make the right choice. What's ideal for one of your friends may not be the best option for you.
Book an appointment with our female doctors, Dr Kyal Agraval or Dr Alison Edwards who can advise and guide you through this decision.
Implanon If you require an Implanon insertion, please book with Dr Kyal Agraval or Dr Alison Edwards. The first consultation will be informational and instructional, the Implanon will be inserted during the second consultation.
I Need a Mental Health Appointment
Check ups for mental health are as common as a checkup for a cold or flu. If you are going through a bit of a rough time and need to talk to someone, we've got you covered.
There can be many reasons to enquire with your GP about a mental health plan; and we have a range of trusted providers that we work with to make your road to recovery as smooth as it can be.
Whether it's stress at work or home, or tough changes taking place in your life, we offer a place of non-judgement and respect.
Please note that Dr. Charles Lee is unable to assist with mental health appointments

Dear blokes, how long has it been since a GP checked your:
-- Height and weight -- Blood pressure -- Lifestyle choices affecting your health -- Diet and exercise -- Blood check up (to find things before they become a problem)
You don't have to be dying to see a doctor. It's not making a fuss to come and sort out any niggling issues.
Our team are geared to assist with a range of issues from prostate to sexual health checks and any other problems to do with *eh hem*
You can request to see either male or female doctors.
I'm Pregnant (Or Think I Might Be)
Our female doctors are here to give you the best care and advice before, during and after your pregnancy.
The first port of call when you are pregnant is usually your GP and they will organise the confirmation of pregnancy, the early tests and talk to you about specialist obstetric care and your choice of delivery.
Shared Maternity Care Dr Alison Edwards cares for pregnant women through the shared antenatal care offered by most Melbourne obstetric hospitals.
It is possible for uncomplicated pregnancies to be managed by both your GP and hospital during your pregnancy. You benefit from the ongoing relationship with your GP and minimise hospital visits without compromising the care you receive.
Pregnancy Counselling Should you have any concerns about an unplanned pregnancy, our female GPs also offer pregnancy counselling, which provides the opportunity to talk to a doctor in a safe and confidential environment.
I Live in Melbourne
Life in the Melbourne CBD can be busy. It’s hard enough to manage the day to day things, let alone when you find yourself needing a doctor last minute.
We would love to be your regular GP practice and have made our clinic as accessible as possible by being open 7 days and after hours. You can transfer your medical records to us and get to know warm and friendly team.
Our doctors have different backgrounds and different skillsets, please check our Medical Services and About page to ensure we match you with the right doctor for your issue.
I Need a Certificate or Form Completed
If you require a medical certificate or work health assessment form filled out, please ensure you bring the correct form along to your appointment.
Each university and health insurer has their own forms and they are updated regularly; we do not keep track of updates to forms, nor do we keep any on hand.
Medical certificates: Medical Certificates can only be issued on the day that you attend the doctor and will never be written retrospectively. If you need a medical certificate for work or university you must attend the practice on the day that you are ill and a certificate will be provided to you at the doctors discretion.
Forms: Forms will attract a fee between $90.00 to $150.00, depending on the form. Please call ahead and confirm if you are unsure or would like clarification.
I Work in Melbourne
QV Medical Centre offers a range of workplace related health services, from health assessments to workplace flu injections. If you have a specific question for our staff please contact us directly.
If you are in need of a second GP practice that is easier to access during work hours, we can easily share your health information with your regular GP at your request.
If you require a health assessment for licensing or other reasons, please contact our reception and make a long appointment. You will need to ensure you bring the correct form with you to your appointment.
Doctors to book with are Dr. Vyom Sharma, Dr. Charles Lee and Cong Nguyen
I Have Young Children
Some people think there are no children in the city, but that's not the reality.
Whether you live here, use CBD child facilities or are visiting, there may be times your children need a doctor.
Children get sick quickly and timely medical care is important.
Just as important is ongoing advice about diet, development, parenting questions and concerns.
I Need a Travel Vaccination
No one considers leaving home without a passport, why leave home unprotected?
There is more to a travel consultation than just vaccination. We discuss jet-lag, DVT, Bali-belly, STIs, altitude sickness and lots of exotic diseases you've never heard of but may need to avoid.
Please note: we cannot currently offer certified vaccination for Yellow Fever, but can arrange all other vaccinations.
We can also advise travel first aid kits and components of travel insurance.
You don't want to be referred to anyone, you want to be referred to a trusted and experienced specialist.
As a well-established Melbourne CBD medical centre, QV Medical doctors can advise and refer you to a range of Melbourne's top specialists, surgeons and allied health services when your health issue requires further investigation and care.
Please note, your health issue will first require a detailed consultation with our doctors to ensure that they understand your problem and can refer you to the most appropriate health services.
We are here to help our patients navigate and access Melbourne's world-class medical services when they need it.
I Need a Repeat Script or Pathology
Many conditions require ongoing management, if you simply need a repeat of your prescriptions or a pathology to check how you are going, we are happy to look after you.
