Excellence in Health

Your Health Clinic at Woodville recognises that a person’s health and wellbeing are personal and that our role is to provide healthcare in a manner best suited to each of the people who visit us for advice and support.

Adelaide Medical Solutions is owned by South Australians who first set up a general practice in the western suburbs of Adelaide in 1980. From that small beginning, we now provide healthcare and medical advice to South Australians from 4 clinics across Adelaide.

Visiting specialists also provide support for our Clinic in the areas of geriatrics, endocrinology, ear nose and throat, surgical paediatrics and obesity management.

Other healthcare services are also available within our Clinic. There is a dental clinic, an audiologist, a pharmacy, pathology, psychology, radiology, an optometrist, podiatrist, physiotherapist, diabetes educator and dietitians.

As a mixed billing practice, we generally offer bulk billing to concession card holders, pension cardholders and children under the age of 16. Please note that this may vary between doctors. Detailed information on billing arrangements follows.

We are open 6 days a week, from 8.00am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 8.00am to 12.30pm Saturdays.

Appointments can be booked at any time using our convenient online booking service. To get started now, simply select your preferred Doctor from below, or the BOOK ONLINE button.
