A THIRD medical centre for Alkimos opened this month and will be open seven days a week, including public holidays.

Jupiter Health Alkimos opened at the Trinity Village Shopping Centre on April 3 and has two doctors, offering walk-in appointments and bulk billing.

Doctor Moh Abuarchid trained in the UK and has been working in WA for the past three years.

Dr Abuarchid has special interests in dermatology, skin lesions/cancer, minor surgery and diabetes management.

Aleksandra Kaddour studied medicine in Germany and spent time at both the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Royal Perth Hospital during her final year as an undergraduate.

Since arriving in WA five years ago, Dr Kaddour has built up a loyal patient base and reputation throughout the northern corridor.

She has special interests in skin cancer medicine, including minor procedures, women’s health, chronic disease management and child health.

“Alkimos is a thriving community and Jupiter felt there was demand for a modern GP practice with experienced doctors who have a great reputation in the northern suburbs,” Dr Abuarchid said.

“The location at the new Trinity Village Shopping Centre was ideal and provides easy and convenient access.

“Our commitment is to provide a welcome and friendly environment and the excellent medical care to suit all our patients’ needs.”

As well as general, men’s, women’s and children’s health, services include chronic disease management, mental health, children’s immunisations, worker’s compensation and health checks.

The practice will also offer skin and mole checks, skin cancer treatment, skin lesion surgery, minor surgery and aesthetic medicine such as botox and dermal fillers.

It is a multi-lingual practice, with staff speaking English, Arabic, German and Polish.

The centre at 12 Longstaff Avenue, Alkimos is open 8am to 6pm on weekdays and 9am to 2pm on weekends and public holidays.

Patients can book appointments on Health Engine or call 6147 6100.
