Female doctors boost the ranks

NEW DOCTOR: Dr Hilary Von Maltzahn is one of four new female doctors to join the Wonthaggi Medical Group in the last few months.

SOME people prefer to discuss their medical needs with a female doctor and Wonthaggi Medical Group understands this.

Over the last six months, the group has welcomed four new female doctors to its ranks.

“It is important to get women looking after women and families, as well as men,” business manager Cameron Pepper said.

“It’s essential to have that choice and it’s important for us to provide that choice.”

The group is proud to now boast a team of 25 doctors, a third of which are female.

Anaesthetists Hilary Von Maltzahn and Kara Methven, along with doctors Anna Housen and Corina Budileanu, are the four new team members working out of the group’s Inverloch site.

Doctor Anna Howson now works alongside her father, long time Inverloch doctor William Howson, at the Inverloch clinic.

“To have a father-daughter team working with us out of Inverloch shows we are about family,” Mr Pepper said.

Meanwhile, locals to Wonthaggi also have the opportunity to book with a female doctor with doctors Hilary, Kara and Corina travelling to the Wonthaggi clinic throughout the week.

“We’ve already received really positive feedback about our new doctors, which is great to hear,” Mr Pepper said.

Even better, clients can expect to see the same doctor if they choose, with new doctors on long term contracts.

With modern, well equipped facilities, innovative practices and expert doctors, the Wonthaggi Medical Group is dedicated to the health of the community.

“If a child is sick, we will shuffle things around to get them in,” Mr Pepper said.

“We will do what we can to service the families in the area.”

Wonthaggi Medical Group has clinics in Wonthaggi, Inverloch and Grantville, and an urgent and afterhours clinic at Wonthaggi Hospital.

Appointments across their three clinics can be made online at www.wonthaggimedical.com.au
