EAST SYDNEY DOCTORS : We have been part of the Darlinghurst community since 1984 when our original clinic opened at 407 Bourke St (formerly known as 407 Doctors).
From our humble beginnings (above the Greek cake shop) with just 2 doctors, we have grown into a team of 15 doctors, 3 nurses, 2 psychologists, allied health practitioners and an international medical research team.
All our doctors and staff share the philosophy of providing high quality, caring health care for all patients. We are also committed to providing education for medical students, medical registrars and contributing to medical research.
All doctors at East Sydney Doctors are experienced in diagnosing and treating Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs).
STIs are on the rise in Australia and often don’t cause symptoms. We recommend regular check-ups for all people who are sexually active.
For men who have sex with men we follow the STIGMA guidelines that advise a sexual health check up every 3-12 months depending on the number of sexual partners you have. A standard check-up will include urine, swabs and blood tests for HIV, syphilis, gonorrhoea and chlamydia.
Heterosexuals are advised to have regular sexual checks ups if they have multiple partners or are under the age of 30.
After your check up results will be available within about 3 working days. You will usually be asked to return to collect your results during a brief follow-up consultation.
