General Practitioners

Gordonvale Family Medical Centre has three male GPs and two female GPs with many years of experience in family medicine. We are a teaching practice with James Cook University and Australian General Practice Training so you may meet a medical student we are hosting or see the GP Registrar for an appointment. GP Registrars are qualified doctors wanting more experience in general practice before settling in a permanent location. They undertake a three year program working at accredited training practices with GP mentors. Mahesh and Rebecca are our GP Registrars who are with us until January 2025.
