Hands down the best doctors clinic i have EVER been to. There is herbal tea, friendly receptionists and the Doctors there are incredible. It feels like I am going to a spa, not a doctors surgery. I have told everyone about this place. Highly recommend

I will strongly recommend visiting The Local Doctor Ivanhoe if you want to be taken care of a responsible and professional team. I am visiting Dr. Chris for a while as I had some serious health issues for the past few months. He is a very knowledgeable, accurate and friendly doctor and his cares and responsibilities for the patients don’t end when you leave his room.



Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine-based approach to treating a variety of conditions by triggering specific points on the skin with needles.

Acupuncture is a minimally invasive method to stimulate nerve-rich areas of the skin surface in order to influence tissues, gland, organs, and various functions of the body.

Iron Infusions

Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in Australia and remains one of the most underdiagnosed conditions in general practice.1 It is estimated that about 8% of the premenopausal adult female population has biochemical iron deficiency, with less than one-quarter being anaemic.1 The consequences of this condition can be subtle and the cause is often multifactorial
