There are many conditions and ailments that our doctors can often treat effectively, as well as discuss with you during your appointment. The obvious things are sudden rashes, muscle sprains, upset tummies and many more like those listed below. But for more serious or chronic conditions, we strongly recommend you see your family doctor or in cases of emergency that you visit your local hospital as quickly as possible.

1. Don’t use a Fake Medical Certificate or Fake Doctor’s Certificate.
Employers can and do check on whether or not a medical certificate is real. If they check and you’ve faked a medical certificate by finding and using a fake medical certificate template you’ve got online you’ll be terminated immediately and lose yourjob. Why risk it? Use medicalcertificateonlione.com.au and see a real doctor we’ve made it easy.
2. Don’t use or seek out a backdated medical certificate?
No. It is illegal for a registered doctor to backdate a medical certificate at this time. We recommend you contact your local GP to arrange a face to face appointment as soon as possible.
3. Don’t use medicalcertificateonline.com.au for complex illnesses or severe injuries or medical emergencies.
Many illnesses still require a face-to-face consultation with your local doctor. Many include the following complex illnesses or injuries (though this list is not exhaustive):
Cancer or Other Complex Conditions
Patients who have complex, long standing medical problems that they have been dealing with for years are not likely to have a short term resolution to their problem through medicalcertificateonline.com.au
A chronic condition requires regular and frequent visits with your family doctor for effective treatment and continuous support. Our service is not intended to replace your family doctor and in the case of those patients suffering a chronic condition their family doctor is best placed to provide continuous and ongoing care given that they probably know you best.
Severe Injuries and Medical Emergencies
Medical emergencies are not supported through medicalcertificateonline.com.au
In cases where patients for example are suffering a broken bone, a severe muscle tear, a large foreign object lodged in part of the body or a sudden allergic and severe reaction, or any other medical emergency, you will need immediate medical attention.
This will require that you immediately attend an emergency room at a hospital nearest to you as soon as possible.
In such circumstances we recommend that you call for an ambulance immediately and seek emergency assistance - dial 000 or make your way to your nearest emergency room. Do not waste time of hesitate just get on and do it!
