Ochre Health Medical Centre Wollongong is a mixed-billing general practice with a range of highly experienced male and female GPs available.

Dr Jonathan Bala is currently running a weekly skin clinic every Thursday. To find out more or to book, click the online booking button or call (02) 4276 7000.

Doctors practicing at Ochre are independent practitioners and they now bill privately. This means patients will be charged a fee that is higher than the Medicare rebate for their consultation, in other words the Medicare rebate patients receive after paying their bill will only cover part of the total cost. These billing arrangements apply to both face-to-face and telehealth (video and phone) consultations. Health care cardholders and children are eligible for discounted fees.

300 Australians will be diagnosed with bowel cancer this week – talking to your doctor, regular bowel screening and plenty of fibre can save you being one of them!

Ochre Medical Centre was purpose built to provide up-to-date facilities for the provision of comprehensive medical care to the community. It has spacious consulting rooms with natural light, a three-bed treatment room, and a dedicated procedure room.

At Ochre Health, we empower the GPs at our practices to improve local healthcare while enjoying a healthy work-life balance. And we support you by investing heavily in developing and supporting our Practice Managers and their teams, systems and technology.

Masks or face-coverings are still recommended in our practice, especially now we are in flu season – please bring your own if you have one. If you have any cold or flu symptoms, we ask you to book a telehealth (phone or video) appointment rather than come in. If you have symptoms and you do require a face-to-face appointment, please wear a mask or you will need to produce a negative RAT test. Please also note our resources are currently stretched and we are needing to prioritise acutely unwell patients as well as care and advice for flu and COVID patients. This may result in some delays and a shortage of routine and non-urgent appointments. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your support.

Physiofinder.net cannot guarantee that companies listed in the directory have the appropriate training or health certifications. Most of the companies that appear in the directory are physiotherapists, but other types of professionals such as osteopaths, massage therapists, etc. also appear. We recommend that you request the health and collegiate registration number of the center you are going to attend to carry out your therapy.

Mary Pas 5 months ago

Fantastic experience: Every doctor l have seen at Orchre has had the highest level of knowledge, professionalism and a healthy dose of empathy, which you really need in times of illness. They seem to diagnose ‘people’ in their entirety, rather than just symptoms, taking in lifestyle, diet, mental health and everything else that contributes to your overall wellbeing. I feel my health is in good hands at this clinic.

Ernie Roosendaal 11 months ago

Fantastic experience: When my longtime GP Dr Jim Turner retired several years ago and retired, he recommended Dr Marc Wilkinson at Ochre Medical Centre in Crown Street, Wollongong. How fortunate for me and my wife to have such a wonderful caring GP, during my recent spell with serious illnesses he did his utmost to liaise with the specialists. Thanks to Dr Wilkinson I’m still here, and hope to be for a lot longer.

Fantastic experience: The team at Ochre are wonderful. The incredibly busy receptionists are always welcoming with a smile on their face. The centre is beautifully kept, spacious, clean and bright. Dr Marc Wilkinson never forgets a face, always saying hello. He is very professional and fantastic at explaining a plan of action that is clear and straightforward. He is calm and patient. A fantastic doctor whom I’d highly recommend. I have no words for Dr Charlotte Middleton, she is by far the best doctor I have ever come across, she genuinely cares about the patient, she is thorough, she listens and she never makes you feel rushed. We are beyond confident that whatever the issue Charlotte is extremely knowledgeable and has a passion for what she does. She literally keeps my family healthy and happy in body and mind. She is top of the list in the Adams family maintenance team!

robyn whitling 1 year ago

Fantastic experience: I have been looking for a new GP for my daughter and finally after 2 years of searching and asking for recommendations, it seems we have hit the jackpot. My daughter has complex physical & mental health issues so needed a doctor that would be able to negotiate that with compassion & understanding. We were initially recommended to 2 other GP’s from this practice by 2 different people (both GP’s had closed books). After checking out reviews I decided to book in with any available doctor from this practice and was so glad I did. Dr Rhys Holioak was absolutely lovely & we came out of the appointment feeling heard & supported. Finding the right GP can be difficult for someone with complex needs. We look forward to developing a close working relationship with Ochre Medical Centre & Dr Holioak in the future.

Mike Ford 2 years ago

Fantastic experience: I needed a repeat prescription and a referral to a specialist. I booked a phone consultation which came on time. It also included some feedback from me about my progress since an earlier procedure. My prescription arrived as a text message while we were speaking and features a QR code instead of a piece of paper - very efficient!! Mike
