How do I opt out of Doctors Australia emails?

Preventive health management and related reminders are Doctors Australia's core offering. Unsubscribing from these emails would drastically limit our ability to keep you up-to-date on our medically-verified preventive assessments and upcoming health reminders. However, if you choose to opt out from your and your family's health reminders you can do so by updating notification preferences on the primary user's Account Settings page. Doctors Australia also sends health information and wellness emails that can be unsubscribed.  

 

What should I do if I cannot save my reports?

Please make sure your user account has permission to save files on your device. Once you have confirmed that you have permissions to save the file in your desired location, press the download button and save the report. 

 

Why don't my reports print?

To print your report please download the report and save it on your device, the file will be saved by default in pdf (portable document format). Once the report is downloaded, open the file and print it.
