    Dr. Jane Howard is the most amazing doctor I‘ve ever met. She’s not only a great doctor but also takes time to listen and really cares about her patients. I feel blessed to have her as my doctor.


    Dr. Bruce Filliter, has been my doctor for over 33 years. He’s the GP everyone wants to have. Some patients travel 200+ kms to see him. I’m one of them!
