NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
----------------------------------

May 2020: Our "new normal"

 

Dear patients,

We are now back to our regular operating hours. Dr Yip is still accepting new patients for appointments, and will also continue to offer telephone and video consultations for new and existing patients who prefer not, or are unable to attend the practice. For further information about telehealth with Dr Yip, please click here.

To make an appointment to see Dr Yip, please ring to speak to reception. Our new practice telephone number is 07 3558 9444 , and our interim email is suite14@gabbadermatology.com.auWe sincerely apologize if you have not been able to reach us, and for the poor quality of this new telephone line. We have also been equally frustrated with these disruptions that are beyond our control caused by NBN installation in the vicinity, which should resolve soon. We also continue to face ongoing issues with Google Business to change Dr Yip's practice address to Gabba Dermatology. Please click here for our correct practice location details.

We really look forward to seeing many of you at our practice during this time when we all start to embrace many new normals. It is opportune that we also share that our practice will be rebranding and restructuring in the next few weeks. We pledge to continue offering high standards of specialist medical care and state-of-the-art dermatology services coupled with the same "old-fashioned" warm service and familiar faces of staff who have always welcomed you every time. Our practice location will remain the same, but there will be changes to our practice name, website and email to reflect our practice restructuring. Watch this space! 

We are also proud to announce that we are now partnering SkinCeuticals® to offer their advanced professional skincare range in our practice. Please visit the Products page for more information.

 

**Important: COVID-19 precautions

Strict COVID-19 precautions and infection control are still in place in our practice.To protect our staff and other patients who attend our practice, we ask that you DO NOT ATTEND and ring to reschedule your appointment if you are unwell. 

 

As part of social distancing measures, we ask that you refrain from bringing accompanying persons as much as possible for your appointment. We encourage you to wear a face mask to your appointment if possible. We are unable to provide face masks to patients but hand sanitizers are available at reception upon your arrival.

Telehealth consultations for interstate patients now available

Dear patients,

Due to a high volume of interstate patients who request consultations with Dr Yip, we are now trialing telehealth consultations to help minimise the need for travel to Brisbane to see Dr Yip.

 

Please note that not all skin and hair conditions are suitable for telehealth consultations, and requests for a telehealth consultation will firstly need to be assessed by Dr Yip with relevant information provided about your skin or hair condition before an appointment can be organised. If you would like to request for a telehealth consultation, please ring 07 3039 1300 or email your request to admin@drleonayip.com.

 

Please note that telehealth consultations are not Medicare-rebatable except for patients outside Australian metropolitan areas defined by Medicare's geographical eligibility criteria. A GP referral with your medical history is required and strongly recommended.

Practice location update

From January 2020, Dr Leona Yip will only be consulting at Gabba Dermatology and will cease consulting at Bulimba Dermatology.

All new and existing patients are welcome to see Dr Yip at and/or transfer your care to Gabba Dermatology from then on.

For appointment bookings, please ring Gabba Dermatology at 07 3039 1300.

Please note that these are separate private practices, therefore any requests for transfer of clinical notes from Bulimba Dermatology will require a "Release of medical documents consent form" to be completed to facilitate this process.

Please note that Google takes weeks to update Dr Yip's practice location to Gabba Dermatology, so please refer to the "Contact" page of this website for reliable information about where Gabba Dermatology is located.

Thank you for understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience with this transition as we endeavour to make this as smooth as possible for everyone.
