Our Receptionist Extraordinaire
Arlene brings to the clinic a great sense of humour and most importantly a very high level of attention detail. Nothing is too difficult for her to do and she is only too obliging to answer any questions you may have.
Our Outstanding Receptionist
Tara recently joined our clinic and is working casually whilst she pursues her dream to become a Youth Worker. Tara brings a joyous spirit and a great attitude to life which is infectious (in a good way).
Our Talented Receptionist
Irene has recently joined our clinic and is working casually alongside her Biomedicine degree. She’s a bit of a study bug, but puts her diligence and reliability to good use to make sure you are well looked after.
