Philosophy & Culture
Successful ageing is not only surviving, but thriving. We believe that it is important to look not only at risk factors, but at factors that can protect against frailty. Every individual has their own values and priorities. We take the time to get to know yours before making recommendations for management of your medical conditions.
Clinical excellence means providing care that is evidence-based. As part of our membership of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, we regularly undertake continuing medical education, to ensure we are up to date with medical research.
We feel that it is important to practice ethically. We do not accept free products and any conflicts of interest for individual doctors will be declared.
