Introducing our newest doctor Dr Sheena Azar who started with us this week.
Dr Sheena Azar was raised in Melbourne, studied Biomedical Science with Honours at the University of Melbourne, and worked as a laboratory scientist in childhood cancer, before heading off to the Australian National University in Canberra to study medicine. Dr Azar returned home to complete her internship and residency through the Northern and Austin Hospitals, and became a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 2018.
Dr Azar sees all aspects of family medicine, with interest in women’s health, child health and adolescent health, having been involved in the “Doctors in Secondary Schools” program. She performs Implanon insertions, minor skin excisions and iron infusions.
Sheena loves general practice because of the people she meets, and she believes the fundamental parts of her role are to listen, to support, and to advocate for her patients. She is married with three young sons, and when time permits, she hopes to get back into running and crafts.
Appointments can be made online or by calling reception.
