We understand that as parents, you want to ensure that your child is seeing the best possible doctor for them and their needs. Our foremost aim is to ensure children feel comfortable in our environment – from our interactive toys and books in the waiting room to the calming and friendly nature of our healthcare professionals.
We offer a ‘Healthy Kid’s Check’ to ensure that every four year old child has a basic health check to see if they are healthy, fit and ready to learn when they start school.
The aim of the Healthy Kids Check is to improve the health and well-being of Australian Children. The Healthy Kids Check promotes early detection of lifestyle risk factors, delayed development and illness, and provides the opportunity to introduce guidance for healthy lifestyles and early intervention strategies. The Healthy Kids Check is delivered in conjunction with the four year old immunisation.
We can also do full or basic health checks on children of any age.
We also provide a range of services for children, including:
- Asthma diagnosis and treatment
- Emotional health and wellbeing
- Allergy Advice
- Information about childhood nutrition

Family Planning and Maternal Health
Here at Eastlink Family Medical, we are excited to support expectant and new mothers during your journey, including pregnancy planning and testing, antenatal care and postnatal check-ups for you and your baby.
Planning a pregnancy?
Our experienced healthcare professionals can give you fertility advice and lifestyle guidance in regard to exercise, eating habits, vaccinations and overall wellbeing.
We can offer blood tests to ensure you have had all the immunisations you need to prevent pregnancy complications, or to make you aware of the vaccines that you may need before planning your pregnancy.
If you have a chronic health condition, we recommend visiting your GP prior to planning your pregnancy, due to medications that may be harmful to your unborn baby.
If you suspect you may be pregnant, your GP will be able to run a pregnancy test at your next consultation.
We provide care for you during the period of time before giving birth, including advice on a healthy pregnancy, necessary screening tests and lifestyle factors that may impact the baby. We can also try to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your pregnancy.
Postnatal Check Ups
Six weeks after birth, both you and your baby will be seen to ensure everything is going smoothly and for the baby’s examination, weighing and 6 week immunisations.

Our General Practitioner, Dr. Wesley Ko, has a strong interest in Chronic Disease Management and Aged Care, believing in the importance of continuity of care, preventative healthcare, and evidence based medicine.
