DR GEMMA AT POSSUMS

Dr Gemma Ossolinski
BSc (hons) MBBS (hons) Dip. Paed FRACGP

Dr Ossolinski joined our practice in 2014 after spending several years training and working in NSW. Her interests include women’s health, paediatrics, mental health and chronic disease management.

Dr Ossolinski has a Family Planning and Sexual Health certificate. She can advise and assist with a wide range of women’s health issues including:

  • Contraception and contraception problems, plus insertion and removal of Implanon devices and Mirena IUD
  • Cervical screening (previously called Pap smear testing)
  • STI testing
  • Managing symptoms of menopause

She also enjoys working with pregnant women and can provide antenatal shared care in pregnancy. She is an accredited Possums NDC practitioner and uses this framework to provide new parents with holistic support for common problems in early childhood- including breastfeeding problems, infant sleep problems, infant cry-fuss problems and perinatal mental health.

 

Dr Ossolinski has a Diploma of Paediatrics from Sydney Children’s Hospital (UNSW). She is interested in children’s health at all ages and stages of development. Her gentle and caring manner helps to put young patients at ease.

Mental health problems can affect anyone. Dr Ossolinski has a focus on the management of depression and anxiety. She takes a whole-person approach to mental health problems and treatment, working closely with any other member of the mental health team such as psychologists or psychiatrists.

Dr Ossolinski takes a comprehensive approach to the treatment of chronic health conditions. She believes that patients should be well informed about their conditions and how to manage them. Chronic disease prevention is another focus and Dr Ossolinski has conducted research on weight loss strategies in general practice.

GP care plans and Mental Health care plans are available (please book a long appointment for these care plans). Please call reception to book a Possums NDC consultation as we will arrange time for a review with the practice nurse prior to the consult.

Bulk billing is available for children under 16, pensioners and veteran’s affairs patients. Generous discount for Healthcare Card Holders

Dr Ossolinski will be consulting on Tuesday & Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings.
