Some time ago we developed a practice philosophy which tries to encompass the healthcare needs of the individual and the community. Every day, each and every one associated with the practice strives to ensure that this ideal is met.
The Practice Philosophy is as follows: "To meet the individual and changing needs of the patient and community by providing a comprehensive, professional and efficient primary health service."
Theodore Medical provides a comprehensive rural general practice including surgery, anaesthetics and obstetrics. Also available on site is a wide range of diagnostic services including x-ray, ultrasound, hearing, heart and breathing tests. Other services include acupuncture, back manipulation and non-PBS dispensary.
This practice is the only private practice in Theodore and services the townships of Theodore, Cracow and surrounding areas. The practice is fully accredited through AGPAL and strives to uphold a high standard of service.
The Principal, Dr Bruce Chater, is a Medical Superintendent (of Theodore Hospital) with Right of Private Practice. The practice also employs an assistant doctor (part-time), Dr Adele Love and a registrar, currently Dr James Sprouster. James is also the Medical Officer Right of Private Practice.
As a training practice, Theodore Medical has two University of Queensland medical students attached to the practice each academic year. As well as these students, other medical students from other Australian and overseas universities enjoy time attached to this practice. Notices will advise you of a student's presence and your permission for them to be a part of your consultation is requested. If this situation is unacceptable to you, please fell free to decline the offer of their presence.
Keeping abreast of technology, Theodore Medical is a fully computerised surgery using Medical Director as the clinical software and Pracsoft for administration. The practice has two servers managing patient records and follows strict protocols to ensure this information is secure.
