Dr RawofDr Nada Rawof MBChB, FRACGP, Postgraduate Diploma in Obesity and Weight Management (South Wales University, UK).

Dr Rawof finished her family physician / general practitioner fellowship through the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 2003. She then underwent extra training in women’s health and is currently finishing her Postgraduate Diploma in Obesity and Weight Management. She is very interested in metabolic syndrome and obesity. It is one of her greatest passions to establish and provide comprehensive management of obesity and metabolic syndrome.

The scope of the bariatric physician is an area sadly overlooked in Australia, it is very important part of managing obesity properly. Providing comprehensive management of very common medical problem is essential. Obesity is the most common disease affecting the population, but how many bariatric physicians we have compare to cardiologists, gastroenterologists, -- etc. Some endocrinologists have interest in managing some aspect of obesity but nowhere near the needed cover.

Navigating through medication, medical conditions and individual patient needs and requirements can be quite complex, and unfortunately I do see significant number of patients disadvantaged due to improper understanding of their individual circumstances.

 Ms Elizabeth McKervey go to top of page

Ms McKerveyElizabeth McKervey Health Services, can offer to your patients a service that covers many sexual health variations. Human sexuality falls on a spectrum from no sexual interest to hyper-sexuality, and everything in between. While this variation does not cause distress or problems within a relationship, then the variation is normal. Once a person identifies an issue then counselling could be offered to assist this patient.

I foresee my office as a safe and warm environment where any person could feel at ease to be open and honest with their sexual health problems. I am happy to see any patient who is experiencing age related concerns, post-cancer or post-surgery issues.

I am also happy to see any patient who identifies as, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and intersex.

I am consulting out of an office in Lemongrove. There is private parking at the back of the house and we are wheel chair friendly.
