About Balwyn Health
Balwyn Health Care was begun by Dr. Rome in 1986 at another site opposite Coles on the corner of Kilby and Burke Rds. It soon became apparent that we needed to expand and in 1991 we relocated to the existing site in Belmore Rd. The great advantage of the new site was the significant increase in available car parking and the light, spacious waiting room area. The clinic was completely rebuilt in 2012.
Dr. Mary-Anne Lancaster joined the clinic in 1991 and she quickly developed a significant patient base. She has subsequently added more doctors to the business and our team is now comprised of 19 personnel including the members of our friendly and helpful reception team, Kitsa, Gina, Kristin, Marie and Kellie. We have four practice nurses also, Julia, Jane, Ellie and Sarah.
In April 2013, Kilby Heights Medical Centre joined with us at this site to increase doctor availability and skill sets. Doctors Savvas, Kondopoulos and Cocotis joined the team.
Balwyn Health Care became fully accredited by AGPAL (Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited) in 2001 which means we offer a superior standard of medical care.
We are fully computerised so that all medical records are detailed and comprehensive, legible and easily transferrable. They are secure and backed up multiple ways on a daily basis.
The doctors at Balwyn Health Care aim to provide high quality, thorough, comprehensive, holistic and caring consultations for each and every patient. Consultation costs will always be kept affordable for all sections of the community. We focus heavily on preventitive health issues and so follow up care is an important feature of our service.
Patients seeking management through medication only will find we aim to minimise the use of drugs where possible. We aim to help patients focus on assuming responsibility for their own health decisions and make lifestyle improvements where possible.
Our reception team undergo regular training in order to assist appropriately every patient with every enquiry.
We welcome you to our caring, friendly clinic and hope we can help you maintain your most important asset, “Your Health” well into the future.
