Dr Tammra Warby
I work in General Practice on the Gold Coast and have worked in the rural setting. What I love is the diversity of roles you can fill within any speciality of medicine, which can involve seeing patients, doing procedures, teaching and supervision of juniors. It is also a career of life-long learning. There is a great challenge in the skilful use of clinical reasoning to solve problems, as well as the privilege of supporting
people to stay healthy in their lives.
Dr Warby’s vision revolves around supporting the optimal health and wellbeing of patients and the families she serves. Dr Warby provides continuing and comprehensive health care for all age groups in a friendly and warm family environment in which quality healthcare is delivered in a stress-free venue.
Some women prefer to be treated by a female doctor not just for general health but for female specific conditions and diseases. Women’s health addresses these issues faced by women and promotes both physical and emotional well-being.
Child and Adolescent health
Child and adolescent health and wellbeing is best addressed by early discovery and intervention of problems confronting young people that may affect them in later life. Dr Warby offers a patient-centred and family-focussed approach for youth issues. In particular, she helps families navigate through systems they may encounter when managing behavioural (such as ADHD) and neurodevelopmental disorders such Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Chronic Disease Management
A GP Management plan is an organised Chronic Disease management plan that identifies your healthcare requirements to help manage your condition. This may involve a multi-disciplinary care team that provides ongoing treatments and services for chronic conditions and reduces their ongoing cost.
Dr Warby runs a Skin Check clinic at Foxwell Medical, and has a Certificate in Primary Care Skin Cancer Surgery. She also treats patients with skin related cases such as eczema. The skin is the largest organ in the body and ongoing care is needed to ensure the skin is functioning properly.
Workcover is an insurance for employees injured in a work-related accident and is designed to help with wage replacement and medical benefits including rehabilitation and return to work support. Dr Warby sees Workcover injuries, including as emergencies – please contact Foxwell Medical on (07) 5657 1906.
As symptoms and severity of asthma can change suddenly, an effective Asthma management plan to track symptoms and measure lung capacity should be reviewed on a regular basis to avoid long term problems. Dr Warby can help you with your management plan and to control your symptoms.
It is essential to have a Diabetes management plan to treat and control the disease to prevent complications. Dr Warby can help you with a team-based plan involving lifestyle interventions, medications as needed and Allied health support, in order to keep your diabetes under the best control possible.
Mental health is a broad subject but is basically “a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community” WHO(http://www.who.int/topics/mental_health/en/). If you are affected by depression, anxiety, or another mental health issue, please discuss this with Dr Warby.
Preventative Medicine can help you avoid many illnesses and conditions thereby supporting your goal of excellent ongoing health. Dr Warby is a strong advocate of preventative medicine and can offer you a proactive approach to staying healthy while supporting you to practise your own prevention. If you already have a condition, preventative medicine may also help you avert complications.
Depending on which country you intend visiting you may require a specific travel medicine and / or vaccination prior to departure. Always check with Dr Warby which vaccinations are advised for which countries that you intend visiting at least 3 months in advance. Dr Warby will also discuss any travel medicine you may need on your journey, especially if you have an existing medicinal requirement that may be hard to obtain overseas. Travel medicine requires special appointment, and sometimes multiple appointments, please book via Foxwell Medical on (07) 5657 1906.
Vaccinations for immunisation against preventable diseases is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting yourself while helping reduce the spread of these preventable diseases. Dr Warby and team can discuss and advise you on the vaccinations you may need depending on age, general health and circumstances.
