Our Story

St Anthony Family Medical Practice is a well-established name throughout regional Victoria, operating 6 medical clinics  and an allied health centre. With a strong vision from the beginning, we have been able to maintain our ideology and ambition throughout the establishment of each medical clinic.

Our first medical practice opened in 1998 in Elmore. This brought much needed medical services to the area which were not previously available. Following the success of this clinic, we extended our services to Rochester, Strathfieldsaye, Heathcote, Rushworth and Spring Gully.

St Anthony Family Medical Practice operates under the leadership of three directors, Dr Adel Asaid, Dr Poate Radrekusa and Dr Eji Ekeanyanwu. We have operated as a family-focused medical service providing patients with the highest quality of care whilst ensuring continual innovation and professional development.

Maintaining this focus at the forefront of everything that we do, has ensured continual success over the years and enabled us to provide the communities that we hold in such high esteem access to a wide range of medical and allied health services.  

Our vision is to provide the highest standard of patient care whilst incorporating a holistic approach toward diagnosis and management of illness.

We are committed to promoting health, wellbeing and disease prevention to all patients. We do not discriminate in the provision of excellent care and aim to treat all patients with dignity and respect.

All our clinics are AGPAL Accredited. 

Being accredited means that our General Practice is committed to a comprehensive program which involves:

  • Engaging our whole practice team to review our practice’s systems and processes.

  • Opening our practice doors to allow a team of independent surveyors to assess how our practice operates.

  • Assessment of our practice, and achievement of the nationally recognized Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Standards for general practices, that focus on health care quality and patient safety.
