I'm trying to conceive at the moment and would like to find a GP in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.
I don't have a regular GP, and am not confident that the one I've seen for my pre-pregnancy check up is the right one for me. This will be my first pregnancy, so ideally I'd like someone who is willing to spend time answering questions and talking with me!
Another important aspect will be affordability. Bulk billing or at least a low Medicare gap would be amazing, as I don't have private health insurance. Any wonderful recommendations ladies? I'm in Coogee but willing to travel in the east. Thanks!

Seeking a GP in Eastern Suburbs Sydney

Im in Rose Bay and there are some great GP's at the family medical practice on Dover Rd. However, they only bulk bill children which has actually been very useful for newborn checks, vaccinations etc. It's around $90 per visit with around $35 back from Medicare. I didn't find that I needed the GP much throughout my pregnancy though as i was in the group practice at the Royal Womens Hospital. Bulk billing options would be Edgecliff medical centre and Bondi Junction medical Centre on Bronte Rd. I've seen a few doctors at Bondi Junction and it can be a bit hit or miss sometimes depending which doctor you get.

I had my GP refer me to the fertility clinic at RWH. They were great there and the appointments are bulk billed. Some of the tests may not be though. Much cheaper than my GP who doesn't bulk bill!
