About Us

Newmarket Family Doctors first opened its doors on the 27th March 2013 but our doctors have had a long legacy of providing medical care and General Practice services in the Wilston, Newmarket and Windsor areas of Brisbane.

Our doctors had all worked together for many years at another medical centre in Windsor and had developed a solid reputation as a trustworthy, reliable and caring group of doctors. However, in wanting to become a doctor owned practice we made the move to Newmarket Reading Shopping Centre in 2013 and opened our brand new medical centre as Newmarket Family Doctors.

We've had to change our name and phone number, but we still offer the highest quality medical care and attention for you and your family and our doctors, staff and nurses are still the professionals that you know and trust.

Our ethos is to provide our patients with down to earth approachable doctors who are committed to excellence in patient care and health management, and who you can trust to look after all your family's health needs.

We are an accredited medical centre.

Our History

Although our practice opened in 2013, our doctors have many years of working together.

Dr Cedric Chu had been working in Newmarket since 2000 and was a founding doctor of Newmarket Road Family Practice in Windsor which opened in 2002. That practice has been sold by the pharmacist owner and is no longer affiliated with us in anyway.

Dr Helen Bajada joined us in 2006 with many years experience in travel medicine and also many years working in Herston and Keperra in general practice.

In 2007 Dr Tania Jardine relocated her practice from Lutwyche to join with us and Dr David Carroll joined us in 2008 after returning from several years of working in Sweden.

Dr Anna Fitzgerald relocated her practice from Chermside to join us in 2010, and Dr Kohei Matsuda relocated his practice from Keperra in 2012.

In 2013 we were joined by Dr Sonja Morgan who has now moved onto other specialist work.

And we also had been joined by Dr Wendy Cook who has had a long history in the area of Wilston and Windsor and who had worked with Dr Chu since 2002. Wendy retired in 2017.

In September 2014 we were joined by Dr Brigitta Sofield who relocated to our practice.

In March 2016 we will also be welcoming back Dr Georgia Myatt who has been on maternity leave but who has worked with us in our last practice since 2002.

Dr Paula Conroy joined us from May 2017 to December 2018 but Paula has decided to further her experience in Skin Cancer medical work and Medical Administration work. 

In 2019 we have been joined by Dr Belinda McCormack who has relocated to our practice from a southside medical centre.

Our Medical Centre

All of our doctors work as individual contractors, and hence will sometimes have different billing and operational practices.

Our medical centre is expertly managed by our wonderful Practice Manager Karryn Lanham who amazingly makes it all work so well.

Our medical directors are Dr Cedric Chu, Dr David Carroll and Dr Tania Jardine.

We are a fully computerised modern practice and all our patient records are stored electronically.
