Seaton Medical & Specialist Centre

Excellence in Health

Your Health Clinic at Seaton 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.

Seaton Medical & Specialist Centre 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.

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 5 days a week, from 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday.

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.

Consultations are by appointment only. Please advise our receptionist when calling if you need to see a doctor urgently.

At Your Health Clinics, we strive to provide easy and equitable access to our health care services. To facilitate this, we offer 24-hour online access to our appointment booking system, as well as face-to-face and telehealth communication options.

Your Health Clinics work by appointment only and while we will always assist in the case of medical emergencies and will offer next available appointments where possible, we are not a walk-in clinic and cannot provide immediate face-to-face or telehealth access to doctors and nurses.

Our friendly administration staff will be your first point of contact and are trained to triage your call, this may require follow up questions to most appropriately determine the urgency of your health needs. Our administration team can also provide you with up-to-date clinic information and policies, assist you to manage your appointment booking and ensure that you can access the care that you require.

Please see our Communication Policy for further details.
