Hi I’m Dr Kevin Yong
I provide a comprehensive Family GP service and am available 6 days a week with same-day appointments every day.
HOW CAN I HELP?
- Symptom wrangling
Are your symptoms a sign of something serious? Do you need tests or treatment? What can be done to give you relief?
- Complexity and Chronic health
Health can get messy and complex. Get expert guidance to help you untangle your various conditions and treatments, and support as you work through illness and uncertainty.
- Future Focus
Proactive care with the overarching goal of a long active life and feeling great along the way. We play to win the long game in health and wellbeing.
I look forward to getting to know you and tailoring your care to your individual circumstances. I can be a home-base for your health care, looking after the core primary care stuff and coordinating your team of specialist and allied health experts as needed.
I enjoy getting to know my patients and working together to create a plan of action that makes sense and that you feel comfortable with. Knowing a patient well makes it so much easier to detect when things are not quite right, and to guide and support you when things get serious. I encourage everyone to have their own regular GP.
I would say my practice style is quite conservative. My priority is to avoid causing you harm, in my endeavour to help you feel better. I am guided by medical evidence and generally not an early adopter of new treatments without fully understanding the safety aspects. We should always remember: there’s no disease known to man that can’t be made worse by a doctor.
Lastly, I believe you can do more for your own health, through healthy living, than any doctor or medicine. A healthy lifestyle will help you live longer, function better and enjoy your life. I’m up every morning doing some form of exercise. I enjoy running, surfing, ocean swimming and bodyweight training. Together with good nutrition and a full 8 hours of sleep, I’m planning to stay active till I’m 103.

I’ve been a doctor in Perth for over 20 years, with over 100,000 patient consultations in that time (that makes me feel so old!).
I have a strong connection with this area. I’ve been blessed to live in Floreat for most of my life while studying at Hale and UWA, and working and raising my family here.
I have worked in many of the major hospitals and emergency departments in Perth and around the state (SCGH, RPH, Fremantle, Bethesda, Hollywood, Mount, Murdoch, Rockingham, Bunbury, Busselton, Geraldton) so I understand the health system in WA and our local area, and can help you navigate to where you need to be.
I also run an online group for over 250 health professionals in the Perth Western Suburbs. You will have access to a fantastic network of experts that I collaborate with to optimise your care.
Once a month (since about 2007), I’m scrubbed up in theatre, doing orthopaedic surgical assisting. I’ve found this very helpful in keeping up my procedural skills, especially for wound closure. This means I can often do your skin lesions and other minor procedures at Floreat Medical and save you a trip to the day surgery clinics.
I am involved in medical student education, and supervise students on placement at our practice from UWA, Notre Dame and Curtin medical schools. I enjoy teaching and find it to be a fantastic way to stay in touch with current treatments and perspectives in medicine.
