How long have you worked at 7Springs?
How do you feel about working at 7Springs as a GP?
Excited. 7Springs is in my opinion a centre of excellence for general practice. We provided high quality care and have access to facilities such as x-rays, blood tests, iron infusions, ECG, Spirometry and other services that smaller practices are not able to provide.
What are you areas of special interest:
Dr Perring is interested in all areas of General Practice but has an interest in chronic conditions such as Diabetes Mellitus management and well as heart and lung conditions. Owing to his previous career as a Podiatrist, Dr Perring is able to provide permanent correction of ingrown toenails with a procedure called “Partial Nail Avulsion”.
What is your billing Policy?
Other billing policy information:
See 7 Springs billing policy for more information. Some procedures and services may attract additions fees.
Dr Perring enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters.
What do you see as the future for General Practice in Australia?
General practice will continue to expand and provided more services that were traditionally completed in hospitals.
What is your best medical tip for your patients?
My suggestion is consider how long you would need to spend with your Doctor when booking. I would suggested to book a “standard” consultation for one issue and to book a “long consult” for two issues or if you want to discuss something more complicated.
