Our mission is to provide the highest standard of patient care whilst incorporating a holistic approach toward diagnosis and management of illness.
We are committed to promoting health, well-being and disease prevention to all patients. We do not discriminate in the provision of excellent care and aim to treat all patients with dignity and respect.
Dr Greg Smith established this Practice in 1983. Dr Jenny Schafer started as the 2nd Associate in 1988 while Dr Jenny McGill joined as an assistant in 1993. In 1997 Dr David Wilke became the 3rd Associate. He has since retired in April 2012. In 2005 Dr Schafer moved on to become an Academic at UQ Medical School and Dr David Dionysius was welcomed as an Associate. Dr Melissa Tan joined us in 2005 and Dr Robert Fitzgerald joined us from Chermside in early 2012. We have been able to maintain excellent continuity of care over the years due to the quality of our GP Workforce. Dr James Millsom will join our surgery full time in January 2014 and Dr Stephanie Hadikusumo will also join the practice on a part time basis 2 days a week from July 2014 and then increase to 3 days a week in 2015.
