If you have the answer to below questions too would be much appreciated.

Is Priceline a good chemist to go to?

Which shop to get reasonably price spectacles?

Which hospital in this area is the best to go to just in case might need one?

Thank you.

Dont know the area, but TenantRodney has recently moved in around there, he and his wife might have suggestions. You can also Google this type of thing, that is how I got in contact with my local medical professionals. I would go as far as to say there will not be bad chemists, they are all good/same in my experience, never heard of Priceline, should I have, by us they are all small owner operated businesses. GPs are good, it is of course a personal and personality thing. Might be a sign if you can get a appointment immediately, as if nobody likes the GP. For glasses check out Specsavers, my mom in law broke her glasses while visiting us and got two pairs for the price of one. Good luck.

GP - Dr Hilton Shapiro (ex South African) - his rooms are in Mascot - not too sure how far that is from Strathfield, but that is the GP we are using and I just love him to bits. He is excellent with kids and is just a fantastic doctor all round, we have moved to the Southern side of Sydney and I would rather drive all the way to Mascot to see him than see any other doctors locally.

He also referred me to a gynae not too long ago (also ex South African) - and what a fantastic gynae too - knows his stuff thats for sure - a specialist in his field. You cant just go and see specialists here anyway, you need to be referred by your GP, so he's a good start as he knows all the South Africans locally.

Good Hospital - Prince of Wales in Randwick (one section is private and the other is public) - massive hospital and have only heard good reports. The gynae im referring to above is actually in this hospital in the private section.

We use local dentists (not too fussy) - havent needed to see orthodontists as yet or optometrist, so cant help there unfortunately.

As for Priceline - nothing wrong with it, but I would suggest using Discount Pharmacy - there are lots of them around and they are very reasonable. The one in Mascot actually has a South African Pharmacist... where ever you go, you are bound to bump into a South African somewhere along the line.

I've been going to Dr Blumenthal (gynae) - also an ex South African although I think he's already been here for 20 odd years. He has offices in Turramurra, Blacktown and Castle Hill. Here is a link to his webpage:

All your info are much appreciated. Thank you so much.

Burwood/Strathfield is on the Inner West Line (cityrail network), 2-3 interchange from Central.
