Dr. Samantha is regularly providing health tips for local schools, kindergartens & child care centres in the community.
Dr. Samantha went on to open her second practice in Berwick, Melbourne, in 2016. The setting in which she works with other General Practitioners, Specialists and other Allied Health professionals, meant she was able to treat various medical queries, including acute spinal injuries, repetitive strain injuries and lower back pain, further expanding her knowledge in different clinical settings. Dr. Samantha is honoured to be serving the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne by providing highly experienced care with an abundance of techniques to individualise care for her various patients.
