According to to Men’s Health Trust, “New Zealand men go to a doctor three times less than women. They die from 3,000 preventable deaths every year – one every three hours. Of the ten most common causes of death facing New Zealanders, men top all of them”.
Girven Road Medical Centre provides for the health needs of men with regular physicals and consultation on cardio care and sports fitness. We can also assist with prostate concerns and blood pressure checks.
If you are travelling overseas for sport, leisure or business, travel advice and travel medicine is also available for pre and post travel. Minor surgery is also available for certain skin cancers.
We can provide a regular annual check-up plan for men to detect early onset of such problems as heart disease or cancer. Please talk to reception if you would like to schedule a regular check-up.
