ECHUCA-MOAMA Family Medical Practice is proud of its modern, purpose built Echuca clinic; designed as a teaching practice which is helping to train the next generation of rural doctors in the Echuca-Moama area.

The practice is all about providing quality primary health care to the rural community in a professional, caring and compassionate manner.

Since humble beginnings in 1975, the practice moved from their original premises in 2013 into their Annesley Street clinic, where they have continued to support and care for residents in Echuca-Moama.

Offering a diverse range of health services, support for seniors includes providing health assessment, management plans, podiatry services, and advanced care planning.

Doctor BK Pillai said that seniors are an important part of the community and that it’s important to have programs tailored to meet a patient’s specific needs.

“It’s important to patients that they maintain their lifestyle as long as possible, staying at home and in the community that they know and love,” he said.

“As part of a comprehensive health management program, regular review is encouraged by the practice.”

Supported by government funding the practice is able to offer a range of services to ensure that health assessments for the over 75s, and management plans for chronic diseases are in reach.

“This government funding also assists the patient to access a range of support services including podiatry services, our two diabetic educators and dietitian,” he said. “We are fortunate to have access to excellent visiting specialists.”

This allows for a more holistic approach to healthcare while also managing each patient’s specific needs.

For more information or to make an appointment, you can visit the practice at 179-183 Annesley Street, Echuca, or call 5480 6001, or visit their website at www.mydr.com.au/practice/echuca-moama-family-medical-practice.
