We offer a range of treatments for a variety of illnesses.
We specialize in diagnosis and treatment of mental illness in adults with a specific focus on anxiety disorders, OCD and depression. We also accept people with other illnesses such as psychotic disorders, bipolar affective disorders and personality disorders.

Primarily using medicines, but psychotherapeutic modalities such as CBT or psychodynamically informed therapy may be used as an adjunct for select patients.
Children and adolescents, adult ADHD, dementia, patients with severe personality or substance use disorders or those with substance use as the only presenting problem.
Refer a Patient
We are a new practice with capacity to respond promptly to new referrals. The letter of referral should state whether it is for an opinion and report or ongoing management.
A mental health Treatment plan is not required for referral to psychiatrists, but please discuss your reasons for referral with the patient.
Referrals are best made electronically using Mindoc’s healthlink secure messaging EDI-MINDOCAD.
Alternatively use our fax number 03 8579 6897.
For item 291 please state that the referral is for an opinion and report. The assessment may require more than one appointment. Mindoc will provide you, the referring GP with a detailed written report within 2 weeks of the final appointment, with diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
A patient is only eligible for one Medicare rebate on the opinion and report in a 12-month period, but there is a rebate for a review under MBS item 293, if patients circumstances changes or new symptoms emerge.
A psychiatry review might also be sought if a patient is not improving with 6 months of psychology sessions.
