OUR DOCTOR: Dr Peta Concannon
I was lucky to have very positive role models in both my mother and grandmother who instilled in me the notion that women were capable of achieving whatever they wanted through perseverance and a compassionate heart. They both were involved in volunteer community service and believed in helping others.
I was encouraged to help people, not for personal gain but with genuine good intent.
I was taught to respect those with the knowledge that comes with experience and age.
These were good lessons to carry into my medical career.
From the start, I have listened patiently and carefully to what my patients have told me.
Taking a good history is the key to understanding what is going on.
Medicine is sometimes like a good detective novel.
We have to find the clues for why you a feeling a certain way and try not to follow false leads.
I treat each person as a unique and interesting individual not as a symptom or disease.
We fill form a partnership and work together to solve the health puzzles.
We will take the time together to consider all the contributing factors and find workable and acceptable solutions.
My aim is to help you to help yourself and regain balance in your life to feel better physically and emotionally.
I believe that it is important for you to have adequate time with me to discuss your concerns.
I am opposed to the notion of “five minute” medicine and offer a friendly and relaxed environment where you can feel comfortable.
I will give you practical advice to help you navigate the confusing health messaging and information provided online.
I understand that Knowledge may be Power but also believe that incorrect information is often hard to spot in this age of sophisticated marketing, and can cause unnecessary worry and stress.
Together we will work to find answers and implement changes to enable you to feel your best.
The Women’s Medical Centre Gold Coast provides Sexual and Reproductive Women’s Medical advice and services.
I have seen great advances in Women’s Medicine during my many years of practice.
There are now
More Contraceptive choices,
Earlier diagnosis and Treatment of STDs (chlamydia and wart virus),
Improved treatment of infertility,
Better obstetric care,
HPV vaccination programmes that have reduced the incidence of cervical cell changes and cancer,
Improved breast and cervical screening and treatment practices,
Better treatment options for menstrual problems,
Safer options for treatment of hormonal symptoms in the perimenopausal and menopausal age groups,
Earlier detection and treatment of osteoporosis (a silent disease that can cause great debility in a woman’s life).
Prevention and early detection of diseases and treatment of Perimenopausal and Menopausal symptoms are rewarding areas of medicine for me and result in very grateful patients who function better now and into the future.
I have been working on the Gold Coast for many years and have established a reliable referral base of medical and other health professionals to provide you with quality specialist care and to help you navigate the health care system.
I have travelled extensively and have great respect for other cultures.
I have a diverse patient base and have experience in delivering health care to International Students, First Nations, Pacific Island and PNG women, and to women from Japan, South America, India, Nepal, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Thailand, and the Phillipines.
I also provide care to Medical Women and Health professionals.
My patients span all age ranges and I have recently had the honour of having treated three generations in the same family (mother, daughter and grand-daughter). How time flies!
