After enjoying over 10 years at Paddington Medical Centre, I am moving to Bondi Road Doctors.

A tiny solo GP practice is difficult to maintain in these challenging ever-changing times, so I’ve chosen a somewhat larger practice with a good team of doctors, a nurse, and convenient on-site pathology collection.

Therefore when I am unavailable there will be ease of access to other doctors for your medical care.

The practice is administering the Covid vaccine.


27 Bondi Rd, Bondi Junction 2022.

Ph: 9389 5811

It is an end-of-terrace practice at the Bondi Junction end of Bondi Road. It’s like a bigger version of Paddington, even down to the artwork on the walls.


I will be starting there on Monday 21st June, working the same sessions i.e. Monday and Wednesday afternoons, and all day Thursdays.  I will also be doing Saturday mornings about once/month.


In the first instance you will need to phone the practice on 9389 5811 to arrange appointments, then ongoingly they can be organised online if you prefer. Let them know you are from the Paddington practice.

Getting there:

All buses going to Bondi beach stop just nearby in Bondi Rd and it is a few minutes’ walk from Bondi Junction train station.

Parking is available free for 2 hours in Westfield, just down Waverley St, and street parking is variable in the numerous streets nearby.

You can enter via the front door in Bondi Rd, or the back entrance in Dalley St directly into the waiting room. There is an outdoor undercover waiting area too, with room to park your bicycle, dog etc.
