Tewantin Medical Centre have switched our online bookings system to a new provider, HotDoc, to provide easier appointment bookings for our patients.
You’ll find the system works a bit differently to our previous online booking system, but hopefully after using it once you’ll agree it is quite easy to use. If you have any questions, please reach out of one of our friendly reception staff on: Tewantin Medical Centre (07) 5313 3277.
You can book in an appointment using the Appointments > Book Online button at the top of the website, or download the HotDoc app:
Tewantin Medical Centre have now switched to environmentally friendly and secure mobile messages (SMS) instead of letters to communicate health messages from doctors to patients.
You might have already received, or will be receiving these messages on your mobile phones as an SMS. You will need to click on the unique and secure link in the SMS, then verify your last name and date of birth to read your recall health message from your doctor. You will only be able to read the message if you have verified your identity to protect your privacy.
You will need to be connected to the Internet or have data on your phone for the link to work. If your phone is connected to the internet, and you still can’t click on the link to verify yourself, please ring us on (07) 5313 3277 and one of our friendly staff will be happy to assist.
An interesting study recently published in the Journal of Nutrition has found that consumption of foods with high levels of flavones and anthrocyanins are protective against type 2 diabetes and can reduce insulin resistance. They are also associated with lowered inflammation. The really good news – flavonoids, including anthrocyanins are found in dark chocolate as well as foods such as berries, red grapes, wine, many vegetables and tea.
A huge THANK-YOU to Cheri for the Beautiful painting adorning our waiting room wall. The Noosa North Shore depicted in soothing tones streams away towards the coloured sands and Double Island Point – a relaxing scene familiar to most of our patients.
