I met with Dr Alan Skapinker for a long consultation. I have been searching for a doctor to assess my health and provide a long term well being plan including the management of my current medicines. Dr Skapinker was most attentive and provided a professional approach to a number of issues I needed assistance with. I am fortunate to have found a doctor to care about the management of my health in a world where everything revolves around time rather than quality of care.
Dr Green was the best! Very detailed and thorough when performing a full check on skin cancer. Also spends the time explaining what he's looking for. Excellent service and I would highly recommend Dr Green
Dr. James Chesworth is our family GP since 2001! Not only is very knowledgeable but is just the best in explaining, why and how certain things happen with your Body. He has looked after my Wife and me and always gives us the best referrals if needed. My Overseas Family with Children had some issues when visiting and he took care of them.The Nurses are as well very efficient and knowledgeable.I would recommend the O'Connell Street Clinic to anyone.
Friendly, efficient Reception staff.Professional, informative and knowledgeablePodiatrist.I would wholeheartedly recommendMr Andrew Bull for any foot problems you may have.I have been very pleased with my treatment.
I went to the clinic to see Dr Green for a biopsy on a mole on my scalp. Can I just say, his assuring, friendly and empathetic persona truly helps soothe my anxiety towards the procedure. Before he performed the biopsy, he walked me through the process, gladly answered all my questions, and reassured me that I won’t feel a thing (and I didn’t!). My tip for those who are nervous is to bring your headphones with you so you can watch videos/listen to music during the procedure. In all, I would highly recommend everyone to Dr Green for your skin check/biopsy, he’s truly a remarkable doctor! Bravo!!
I have been going to O'Connell St Clinic for 20 years since it was previously at the Gateway Building. The reason I keep going here is because of the staff and also the fact that the clinic is extremely professional and always runs on time. The staff are lovely, the reception staff are always friendly and extremely helpful they are a credit to the clinic. I have been seeing Dr James Chesworth, Dr Polly Chan and Dr Gemma Kim for all this time. They all very thorough, caring and wise people. They always takes time to explain things, rather than rush through and I feel listened to. I've had to occasionally go to other clinics and they are no way as good. Thank you everyone at O'Connell Street for providing such an excellent service.
I had my 1st Pfizer there today & they where absolutely unbelievable. So quick & effient & there customer service was second to none. I recommend them to everyone. My experience was one of the best appointments I’ve had EVER..Since then I’ve had my second vac & again they where absolutely wonderful, can’t tell you how long it’s been since there’s not a single thing that I can fault. Good on I Oconnell st clinic. Amazing staff
A wonderful practice! Reception staff are helpful and friendly, and Dr Kua is an exceptional GP. She's very knowledgeable, is a great listener, and has time to discuss any concerns you have, and offer solutions without rushing you out the door so she can get to her next appointment. I cannot recommend her highly enough and the team at the O'Connell Street Clinic are just terrific. Thank you!
Great Clinic!. I highly recommend this place especially if you have a fear of needles or anxiety about anything. The doctors and receptionists are very caring and will put your mind at ease. Great staff. Thank you.
The staff was very efficient and friendly. I spent about 16 minutes at the practise, 15 minutes of this visit was part of the standard wait process after a Covid vaccine. I won't hesitate to visit again when I need to see my GP.

They are very organised. The staff and the doctors are very friendly and knowledgeable and they will also explain clearly each process that you will undergo through. It did not take long for me to finish my medical examination because it went smoothly. They deserve the 5 stars! 😊
I visited the clinic for my first Pfizer injection. All staff are very professional. I was called in at my allocates time. Michelle administered my injection, in fact she was so quick and gentle, I didn’t even feel the needle at all. I waited the 15 mins needed and went to the desk and was given my next appointment for 3 weeks. Very quick and easy. Thank you O’Connell st Clinic.
Welcoming, efficiently run medical practice. This was my first visit, you can fill in all required paperwork online before your appointment. I was seen at my designated appointment time and didn’t have to wait. Convenient location in the city. Very impressed.
what a great place!! thoroughly professional, everyone is patient focussed and service orientated in providing you all the answers you need. I was privileged in meeting all the wonderful people there and i cannot recommend them any more highly than what i am now.
Dr Stanley Green is an exceptional skin cancer Doctor. I have been a patient of his for 10 years now and have referred many friends who all rave about his attention to detail, expertise and experience in this medical field.
Met with Andrew Bull and was immediately put to ease with his knowledge and expertise. His explanation of my injury and the actions needed for relief were consice. He has provided a remedy to a long ongoing problem and I hope to be pain free soon.
I came from Adelaide and I booked an appointment with this clinic for my US Visa medical examination.Not only were they extremely professional but they were also very kind and friendly as I was somewhat of a nervous wreck during this confusing process. They were able to answer alot of questions that I had and gave me additional advice for things I hadn't even considered.Everyone I dealt with from the friendly receptionists, the wonderful nurse, and an expert pathologist all the way to Dr Rosemary were an absolute pleasure to meet.Dr Rosemary Aldous was very understanding and kind and professional. I wish I had a Dr half as good back home, maybe then I wouldn't dread seeing a Dr. She was able to answer the questions I had and helped explain the process in a way I could understand it as well as giving me some very valuable advice.The pathologist (I think her name was Kim, I could be wrong, I met so many lovely ladies that day), had very steady hands. It was the part I was fearing most as I have deep set veins and previous Dr's and nurses have had issues drawing blood. This lovely lady had no such problems, was very professional and efficient while still maintaining a friendly attitude.The nurse helped me sort through the paperwork and with some basic testing, eye sight, weight etc. She was very kind and patient with me and helped me settle my nervousness by just talking to me and explaining what we'd be doing that day.While waiting between tests the receptionists checked on me regularly to make sure I was on schedule. I got to see them interact with a few different patients and they maintained their open friendliness with everyone who walked in, colleague or patient.I almost wished I lived in Sydney just so they could be my regular clinic. Anyone who visits for what ever their medical problems, I'm sure these girls will make you feel welcomed and at ease very quickly.I can only give them 5 stars but as a combined team they earnt a 7 out of 5 from me. They were far beyond anything I had expected and turned a day filled with anxiety and dread into a day that I actually enjoyed.
Very friendly service, Dr Green is the consummate professional who treats you like a person and not just a number. Reception staff and are kind and enjoy a good laugh. I will not be going anywhere else in future, high recommendation
Professional and helpful visit with Dr Green to get my skin checked this morning. Dr Green explained the process and helped me to understand what I should and should not be worried about as well as what I should do to look after myself. Highly recommend a visit if you want your skin checked
Friendly and welcoming reception staff, followed by the most comprehensive full body skin check I’ve had. Whilst young, I have a previous history of Melanoma. Dr Green completed a thorough check of any spot that looked slightly unusual, and talked me through the different characteristics of cancer types.Paid $165 for the check, but receive $75 back from Medicare. A low price for piece of mind and brilliant bed-side manner.
I’ve seen both Dr Green and Dr Aldous at this clinic and have had good experiences with both. They were friendly, caring and thorough. The online booking system is very easy to use. It was also convenient to have a pathology in the clinic so that blood tests could be done immediately.
An absolute brilliant experience.Friendly, professional and helpful staffGreat time management.Instructions given in an easy to understand manner.Dr Aldous was amazing and explained everything to me in great detail.I Would definitely recommend this clinic to anyone.
I have been going to O'Connell St Clinic for I think 18-19 years since it was previously at the Gateway Building. The reason I keep going here is because of the staff and also the fact that the clinic is extremely professional and always runs on time. The staff are lovely, the reception staff are always friendly and extremely helpful especially Tom, they are a credit to the clinic. I have been seeing Dr James Chesworth for all this time and he is a very thorough, caring and wise person. He always takes time to explain things, rather than rush through and I feel that he listens really well and wants to get the best treatment possible for me. . I don't work in the CBD anymore but will keep going to this clinic because I've tried others and they are no way as good. Thank you everyone at O'Connell Street for providing such an excellent service.
I came here for medical check up and I was so please with the service, it was quick, friendly and very friendly either receptionist or the doctor. They also cares about my safety, I was given face mask for free.Everything was beyond expectations. I will come back definitely.
After the first few minutes of speaking with Nick it was clear his knowledge was right up there! Everything he explained made perfect sense and I valued his honest approach in finding the right solution for my issues. I look forward to continuing my recovery with Nick's help.
I visited the clinic today for my USA Visa medical examination and the staff were just wonderful. Most of my dealings were with Tom and Mark and both were just so helpful and very informative. The nurses who assisted me today were very professional and Dr Rosemary is such a delight and has the most fabulous pair of red boots. I highly recommend this clinic if you are currently going through the USA Visa program and I wish you the best of luck. Susan
Well i don’t want to write this but you guys send me an email asking for a review, well there you goI booked a consultation session through the phone number from Sydney Sports Podiatrist website, it was my first time i have no idea they share the space with the clinic,I went there at 3 pm , i have no idea they booked me with a GP instead of the Podiatrist, in the middle of session I realised something off so i asked her and she said she is not the specialists, so she talked to the receptionist and explain what happened, the clinic still charges me with discounts because i already done the session,clearly understand that’s a human error, i already have referrals from my local GP to see Podiatrist specialists, I don’t have medicare so i am not really happy to pay for information that already know,It was a nice and clean clinic by the way that’s why i still rate 2 stars
I LOVED Dr. Rosemary, she made me and my fiancé feel extremely comfortable and was so truly kind. She was also very knowledgeable about the American Visa process, which was greatly appreciated by us. I would go recommend for any medical needs.
I am most impressed by the O'Connell Street Clinic. It is well located in the Sydney CBD and the online booking engine works very well with both bookings and reminders. The team at reception when you arrive are very professional - Tom remembers patients' names - and the spread-out waiting area puts patients at ease. During COVID they have responded very well with their own small hand sanitisers (patents can keep) and also fresh pens in sealed containers for new clients competing forms. Staff have been wearing masks during this COVID time. Appointments occur on time. Dr James Chesworth is excellent and thoughtful and one never feels under time pressure. I find the O'Connell Street clinic to be first class and will continue to use it.
We adore Dr Rosemary Aldous - she is the best and most caring Doctor - very quick efficient and knowledgeable - you could not find a more qualified informed Dr - also even better easy to talk to and offers very informative information on any of your queries - could not rate her more highly.
I wish O'Connell St clinic was my local clinic- I had a fantastic experience there. I saw 4 different heath professionals during my visit and each one was extremely kind, experienced and made me feel very comfortable.
I always receive friendly & efficient service.My consultations are most informative & never rushed.My doctor treats me as a person so I feel comfortable at all times & I leave feeling full attention has been paid to my overall health & wellbeing.
Doctors Aldous and Skapinker seem competent, professional and - importantly - readily available when you need them. They have always gone out of their way to fit me in at short notice when I'm visiting Australia from overseas.
Happy and satisfied with all the nice people working at O’Connell Medical Centre. All are so friendly, caring and accommodating specially the Nurse on this day. Thank you so much and more power to your Medical Centre. Keep safe everyone.
I have been attending this practice for several years and would highly recommend Dr Kim as a GP. She has been unfailingly thorough, knowledgeable and empathetic.There is a gap payment (since the cost of consultation is above the Medicate rebate), but it is not excessive and seems appropriate given the location and level of care (for example, my appointments have always started on time and had the full duration of the appointment to ask questions).I was also able to have travel immunisations given by a nurse after an initial consultation with the GP, which was convenient.
Dr Aldous has been my doctor for more than six years and during that time she has never failed to deliver excellent care. She's invariably warm, professional and holistic in her approach. I'm 100% confident I'm getting reliable medical information that's always appropriate to my situation. And the support staff are lovely, nothing is ever too much trouble. Highly recommended.
O'Connell St Clinic is a very friendly clinic. Easy to access to make the appointment. Reception Staff are very nice & efficient. Doctor James Chesworth is a very professional doctor. He explained everything well in details. Make you feel you are cared & understood.
Friendly GPs and reception team who have supported my family and I over 6 years of living in Sydney. From major injuries, pregnancy and mental health support as well as the usual flu shots and regular check ups, Gemma Kim has been professional friendly and gone above our expectations. Thank you everyone for keeping us so well!
I came to this Practice for my visa medical appointment. The dr was lovely and very thorough. The staff were efficient and very friendly. Everything was explained to me and emailed to me ahead of times and overall it was a great experience.
I came here for a visa medical and the staff are so professional, kind and friendly; literally everyone we dealt with. They kept us informed on how everything was running and they were so clear about next steps. Great medical practice 😊
Andrew listened to my foot issues patiently, even though mine was Xmas eve last appointment! He discussed various options for my wide feet, showed me a good exercise, explained a bit of the science behind my problem, taped the worst part of the right foot tightly and neatly, and explained about the type of shoes i should try to buy. All very practical and helpful, and i will go back in the New Year to see what i can do to help my hurt heel area.
Dr Gemma Kim is an angel,. I have been seeing her for sometime now and I would recommend her to anyone migrating from another country. She is professional, kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable and patient.The receptionists are amazing and friendly.
