Dr Ian Bennett (MBBS)
When I am not busy being a husband and father, I love going bush, or riding my motorbike. Then, when I am not sleeping, I am a doctor for a few hours every day.
I am very proud of my practice and my staff and I enjoy my patients. My main emphasis is on individual patient care and long-term health management.
Over the years, I have developed a special interest in child and adolescent health, natural health/medication, sports medicine and palliative care, though I have maintained my interest in all spheres of general practice. In what is left of the day, I continue to study as this job is ever changing.
A large part of my job now is education for both the GP Registrars and the Medical Students. This is very important, especially training the next generation of family doctors who want to enjoy the special relationship we GP’s have with our patients.
I believe in practicing good common sense medicine, tailored to the individual. I believe we enjoy our life by having good health.
