Established in 1992, as one of the first Medical Centres in the Dural area, our practice has always drawn generations of families from as far north as Wiseman’s Ferry, to as far west as Windsor. Over the years, we have cared for the many farmers market families in Middle Dural, Glenorie, Galston and Arcadia, as well as the suburban families of Cherrybrook, Pennant Hills, Kellyville, and Castle Hill, and those from the rolling acreages of Kenthurst, Glenhaven and Annangrove. And now, as the suburbs continue to expand and flourish, so also do the families and lives that fill them.
It remains our passion and privilege to care for multiple generations and be “the family doctor” and not just a distant healthcare provider. All of the doctors are Fellows of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners – the respected professional body for GP’s in Australia. The culture of our practice strives to continue to be in delivering excellence in General Practice healthcare, with a thorough approach and personal touch.
Our driving mission is to passionately serve the community through a holistic, comprehensive and compassionate approach to General Practice delivery. Our logo features an established, healthy and flourishing tree, not unlike the many beautiful native gum trees found in leafy Dural and surrounds. And this is precisely how we envision flourishing health – like a solid unshakeable tree planted by streams of water, yielding fruit in season and with leaves that do not wither.
