I enjoy the variety that goes with general practice.
My patients tend to be those seeking a medical partner that can help with ongoing management of their health - whether they be fit and well or dealing with a chronic condition.
Doctor Alex Sleeman prides himself as a family doctor who you can get to know and trust and who will be available to deliver continuous care for you and your family.
Dr Sleeman works full-time hours at Denmark Family Practice, previously known as Dr Jane James' Surgery (an AGPAL accredited practice). Being a full-time GP means he can offer his patients continuity of care and the ability to see the same GP over time.
Dr Sleeman encourages a trusting and open relationship and aims to be a trusted advisor to his patients whilst ensuring absolute confidentiality.
He considers himself a true generalist - understanding the broad range of issues that patients face, without needing to unnecessarily see a Specialist. Dr Sleeman also knows his limitations as a GP and is well associated with a network of Specialists who are renowned in their field.
Working with a team of doctors and nurses, Dr Sleeman is able to leverage other medical providers with patient management when the need arises. That is, when your doctor is away, an equally experienced doctor within the practice can manage your health needs until your doctor returns from leave. This ensures your health is managed in a comprehensive, continuous and thorough manner at all times.
Dr Sleeman also has admitting rights for Denmark Hospital for non-emergency patient care.
