Outside business hours, Dr. Michael Joseph’s patients are encouraged to call 0413183722 and leave a message. Dr. Michael Joseph will endeavor to return their call as soon as the opportunity arises.


We kindly ask that patients be considerate and only call after 11 pm if it is an urgent matter that cannot wait until 7 am the following morning.


Dr. Michael Joseph can perform home visits to patients under his own discretion. These visits are usually special circumstances and are existing well-known patients of Dr. Michael Joseph.  


If urgent care is required during surgery hours we encourage patients to come to the practice. We are happy to arrange enhanced privacy with alternative access to the practice. If in the event a patient is too sick to come to the practice, Dr. Michael Joseph can visit the patient at their home or place of care if they are local and a patient of the practice. This means that Dr. Michael Joseph will do home visits from Belmont South to Swansea North.
