Dr Alison Mahony
When I first came to Standish Street a year ago, patients would ask “How long are you staying?” Well I’m happy to say Forever!” Myrtleford is unique, in my experience it’s lovely to find a community that accepts outsiders. It’s very egalitarian and diverse.
Personally I feel it’s a privilege to look after people from birth to the end of life. People in their own homes, in the Lodges and as in patients I enjoy finding solutions for patients and their families.
My background gives me an insight to complementary medicine and I offer obstetric shared care.
Qualifications – Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy), MBBS (Graduate entry Monash Uni), DRANZCOG (Adv).
Personal interests – gardening, family, renovating and learning Italian.
Special Interest: GP Obstetrics and Palliative Care.
