Our practice boasts modern patient treatment rooms, five consultation rooms and a well-equipped minor medical procedure room with modern medical lighting and equipment.
Many of our Doctors have their own special interests and these contribute to the extra extensive medical services we can provide our patients.
By choosing to use us, you can rest assured that your health is in good hands. We were awarded “Practice of the Year” by the Gold Coast Association of Medical Receptionists and are accredited with Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited which means the practice has met stringent standards as set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
