DR GEORGINA EAST
MBBS BA DiMM PGCertTravMed
Dr Georgina East grew up in New Zealand, with the mountains in her backyard. The outdoors lifestyle she enjoyed in NZ fostered her love of adventure, and led her to pursue General Practice with a special focus on Travel, Expedition and Remote Medicine.
Georgina has led a diverse and interesting career, including positions with the Royal Flying Doctors and expeditions in Antarctica, the Arctic and the Himalayas (to name just a few).
With a growing young family, she has developed a love of paediatrics and finds that her young patients brighten every day. Georgina also has a strong interest in Women’s Health, particularly pelvic pain and endometriosis. She has a deep appreciation of the positive impact that good management of these common (and often misunderstood) symptoms can have on women’s quality of life.
Georgina takes a collaborative approach to medicine, listening to patients, their concerns and their health goals. Georgina sees her role as helping educate patients, allowing them to own their own health, feel in control, and be well placed to achieve optimal health outcomes.
