Reservoir Medical Group commenced in 1960. We are a GPA accredited practice.

The demographics in the practice ranges from babies to 90 year olds.

We work under a team based approach where our doctors collaborate with our nurses and our in house multidisciplinary team.

We take medical students from The University of Melbourne.

We use Genie as our software which is easy to learn and is user friendly.

We are an appointment based clinic but take emergency walk -ins who are triaged by our nurses.

Our staff stay with us for many years as we are known for our friendliness and family values.

Our practice manager, Michael has worked with us for over 20 years and is extremely approachable and knowledgeable. Please contact him if you would like more information about us.
