Family Physicians for Charters Towers
Caring for your Heath
Our aim is to provide the highest quality medical care as courteously and effectively as possible. As a provider of healthcare to Charters Towers for over 30 years we pride ourselves in continually improving the range of services we offer to our community. Our most recent addition in 2016 has been a visiting renal physician to our practice. Last year saw the introduction to our practice of the only diagnostic ultrasound service in Charters Towers. All our doctors live in Charters Towers or the surrounding rural area.
We endeavour to provide our patients with the best and most current treatments. We are committed to promoting health, well-being and disease prevention to all patients. We do not discriminate in the provision of excellent care and aim to treat all patients with dignity and respect.

Adolescent health, women's health and men's health needs are catered for within our practice. Our doctors are all trained in doing comprehensive skin checks and the surgical treatment of skin cancers.
