The General Practitioner – Oakleigh & District at 139 Warrigal Road is a new medical clinic that will deliver a fresh approach to the provision of comprehensive general practice care to the individuals, families and community of Oakleigh and surrounding suburbs.  

 

Our practice at 139 Warrigal Road is the site of the former clinic ‘Oakleigh and District Health Centre’ established in 1972 and previously operated by Dr John Malios who is well known within the medical profession and particularly amongst the Greek speaking members of our community. Since 2003 the clinic has been supported by Dr Lakshmie Kariyawasam
