General Practice

Our General Practice Department is your first port of call when you sense an unfamiliar change in your body. No matter what the concern may be, our physicians will uncover your condition by using their expertise with diagnosing complicated or underlying conditions and allow you to get back on the path to health.

Our General Practitioners (GPs) are experienced in managing complex health issues. They are able to utilize their skills and international best practices to apply them to your individual needs. They specialize in providing patients and their families with a thorough understanding of their condition through patient education allowing you and your family to take control of your health.
