COM­BIN­ING per­son­alised care and mod­ern tech­nolo­gies, Azure Med­i­cal goes far be­yond treat­ing ill­ness.

Owner and prin­ci­pal GP Richard New­ton has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence, work­ing in a range of med­i­cal ca­pac­i­ties through­out his 24 years as a doc­tor.

Dr New­ton worked in the armed forces in the UK, giv­ing him a mil­i­tary per­spec­tive on medicine.

He moved to Australia 13 years ago and worked as a res­i­dent doc­tor at an iron ore mine in the Pil­bara and as a med­i­cal direc­tor of a large cor­po­rate prac­tice in WA.

“My range of ex­pe­ri­ence has en­abled me to put to­gether what I hope are the best bits of each model to cre­ate the prac­tice of the fu­ture,” he said.

A va­ri­ety of ex­tended ser­vices are avail­able at Azure Med­i­cal, in­clud­ing body com­po­si­tion scan­ning, a method of de­ter­min­ing body fat per­cent­age, mus­cle per­cent­age and bone den­sity.

Dr New­ton said along with the in-house di­eti­cian and gym next to the prac­tice, this in­for­ma­tion gave pa­tients ex­cel­lent mo­ti­va­tion to take con­trol of their health.

GP Merci Kusel has a spe­cial in­ter­est in women’s health laser treat­ments for con­di­tions in­clud­ing in­con­ti­nence and pro­lapse.

Azure Med­i­cal spe­cialises in skin health and pro­vides a range of treat­ments on site.

“We recog­nise ap­pear­ance is an im­por­tant part of peo­ple’s health; it can af­fect their mood, well­be­ing and con­fi­dence,” Dr New­ton said.
