Granada Medical Practice was established by Dr Arosha Vidyabhushana and Dr Fatin Wajdi on the 16th of January 2012, beginning as a small practice on Burslem Drive, Maddington. At that point in time, Dr Arosha and Dr Fatin had been working together in the Maddington area since 2008, and welcomed their ever-growing patient base on the new and exciting chapter of their careers. Today, the practice is open seven days a week and only being closed during public holidays.

Granada Medical Practice is accredited with Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited(AGPAL) according to the Royal College approved standards of general Practice in Australia and committed to provide the best possible care for its patients.

During the last five years, the practice has evolved and flourished rapidly, the most significant change being moving to the new premises, 70 Attfield Street in May 2016. The new practice brought in an influx of new patients with it’s onsite pathology service and various allied health services such as Physiotherapy, Podiatry and Psychology. Practice Manager Lilian te Koppel has described the new move as something that “helps our staff to provide far better service to our loyal patients of course a better working environment to our staff which enable them to give the very best of their service to our patients”.

The doctors of Granada Medical Practice are highly qualified, with over 50 years of GP experience collectively. Their skill and quality is evident in the wide ranges of services they provide, all catering to the whole family’s needs. The practice services are mostly bulk billed to Medicare card holders, and patients will be informed of any additional charges prior to attending the consultations.

“We are blessed with very efficient and friendly staff .I believes the success
so far with all aspects is largely due to the commitment of our practice manager,
nurses and the reception staff. Also we are very proud to have extremely
experienced and commited doctors who are well respected
and loved by the patients of the area”
Practice Principal GP Dr Arosha Vidyabhushana.

Patient feedback plays a vital role in maintaining the high standard of healthcare that Granada Medical Practice sets for itself, and so patients are always welcome to provide their feedback on the services they receive from both admin staff and the medical staff through the feedback questionnaire available at the front desk. In Dr Arosha’s words, “it is the best way to improve the services and share the satisfaction of the good services we provide with all our staff!”.
