Summerhill Medical Centre was established in 1995 to serve the people, families and businesses of Reservoir, Bundoora, Kingsbury, Preston, Mill Park, Macleod and Coburg with quality and convenient healthcare.
Due to the wonderful support of these communities, Summerhill Medical Centre has grown to 9 General Practitioners (male and female), 3 Practice Nurses (including a midwife), and a team of Allied Health Providers including dietitian, diabetes educators, physiotherapists, psychologist and acupuncturist/IVF acupuncturist. We have also teamed up with Eastern Respiratory Service to provide diagnostic testing as well as specialist medical consultation for our patients with various lung disorders.
In line with our ethos “Your Health, Our Focus”, we continue to provide affordable and accessible healthcare by bulk billing all patients and opening 7 days a week. We take appointments and also walk-ins as we believe that all patients should have access to a doctor when one is needed rather than when we can squeeze you in.

Most of our doctors are also multi-lingual and can converse in Arabic, Cantonese, Greek, Indonesian, Malaysian, Mandarin, Tamil and Urdu.
Our Clinical team includes a Mid-Wife who is a recognised shared care provider with over 20 years experience working at Royal Women’s Hospital and Mercy Hospital.
