Welcome Dr Maz!
We’d like to extend a big thank you to all of our patients that recently took part in our Patient Feedback Survey.
We love getting your feedback and have been able to take some of your suggestions on board to make some improvements to our clinic!
Some of our improvements are:
– We’ve added a new protocol for our receptionists to call you up if your doctor is running more than half an hour behind.
– Text message reminders now sent for all appointments with our Chronic Disease and Diabetic Education Nurses.
– Online booking now available through both Hot Doc and Health Engine.
Don’t forget, you can always leave feedback during your visit to the practice by asking reception for a Suggestion/Complaints form.
We are so excited to welcome Dr Martin Newbury to our team at Mooroolbark Medical Centre, all the way from the UK!
Dr Newbury has over 17 years of experience, initially training in Emergency Medicine and more recently General Practice, having obtained post-graduate diplomas in both. He focusses on a holistic approach to patient care, and has interests in musculo-skeletal medicine (including joint injections), mental health, minor surgical procedures and skin conditions.
When not at work Dr Newbury is a sports tragic, especially for tennis and cycling, and can often be found chasing after his young daughter around parks and shopping malls.
Dr Newbury will be available for consultations Monday – Thursday at Mooroolbark Medical Centre- make sure you come say hi!
