Melita Thompson-Kambas

As an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, I am passionate about promoting safe exercise recommendations to a diverse range of clientele. I prescribe tailored exercise programs to suit each individuals’ abilities, goals, interests and lifestyle.

Being physically active and living a healthy lifestyle has always been an interest of mine, therefore I completed a Bachelor of Human Movement followed by a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Exercise Science at UniSA.

I enjoy watching and participating in a wide range of sports, cooking/baking, adventuring outdoors and travelling. I also enjoy helping people achieve their health related goals and take great pleasure knowing that I am able to be part of that journey towards positive change.”

NOTIFICATION RE: TELE-CONSULTATIONS

From Monday 30th March, our doctors shifted to delivering consults predominantly via telephone or video telehealth. A large proportion of routine medical care can safely be performed over telehealth. These measures are in place for your safety. Fortunately, the levels of COVID-19 within our community are currently low.
To book an appointment online for a telephone consult with a doctor, please click here. In most cases, telephone or video consults during the pandemic will be bulk-billed.
If your problem requires an examination, a safe face-to-face appointment will be scheduled. On arrival at the clinic, you will be asked to call reception to inform them that you have arrived – please continue to wait outside. You will be called and taken directly into the consulting room. While this precaution might appear extreme, it further adds to your safety.
If you have symptoms of fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose or shortness of breath, you may be eligible for testing for COVID-19. Please book a telephone consult with your GP who will discuss and arrange this.
Call 000 if you need urgent medical assistance.
We will also be reaching out to our vulnerable patients and those with chronic diseases to create or update their Chronic Disease Management Plans. Patients over 70 years old, Aboriginal and over 50 years old, and those with chronic disease are more vulnerable to COVID-19. Together, we can optimise your health. Please prioritise finding time to work with us on this.
