Our Story

 
Dr’s Vinay and Supriya Karanam are carrying on the legacy of the wonderful Dr Gerald Mah who retired in 2015 after caring for the Wallsend community for 47 years. Dr Vinay and Dr Supriya are passionate about providing a warm, caring and family focused practice for their patients.
With the practice growing and to accommodate the needs of our patients, we have begun the first stage of renovations to our gorgeous building to provide a more comfortable waiting room, safer disabled access, a larger reception area and a nurse/procedure room. The next stage will involve extending the waiting room, providing disabled bathroom facilities and a further 3 consulting rooms. This will provide room for another doctor and allied health professionals to join our practice.
We are also excited to have Dr Titus Mazhavancheryil join our team this year.
Watch this space for further improvements …… 😊
