Information for patients

 

About us

Perspective Medicine is a group of associated internal medicine physicians committed to providing high-quality and coordinated specialist medical care. Each physician working within this group conducts their own individual medical practice, but the administration is centralised for the convenience of patients and referrers. You may be referred to another member of the group depending on the care you require, or for reasons of availability for urgent issues.
