Chirnside Park Family Clinic aims to provide comprehensive coordinated healthcare services promoting health and wellbeing as well as managing illness. To be comprehensive we need to be accessible. So we are operating 7 days. On Sundays we offer home visits. Home visits can be requested other days as well and we endeavour to meet your needs.
The Doctors at Chirnside Park Family Clinic offer not only medical experience in healthcare but also culturally in touch with our community. Languages spoken include Persian ( Farsi ), Dari, Hazaregi, Bengali and off course English.
Persian (Farsi) speaking patients in Melbourne area who are mostly Iranian can comfortably communicate in their native language with Dr Alireza Garryz. This makes a big difference when a patient is trying to explain detailed feeling about their symptoms. A lot of these people are already working in English speaking environments but when it come to a medical consultation things may need fine tuning. Also people from Afghanistan and Tajikistan can communicate with Farsi speaking doctors as languages are close together.
Dr Akther can speak Bengali well aware of cultural and linguistic needs of Bangladeshi people.

Chirnside Park Family Clinic is an accreditation registered practice owned and operated by General Practitioners working in it. After working in different parts of Australia Dr Garryz researched around Melbourne to find out that Chirnside Park is a district of workforce shortage for general practice services (medical centre) and noted that the suburb does not have a bulk billing medical centre. Of note was that Chirnside Park Medical Centre had closed. With aim of starting a bulk billed medical centre he purchased a property and applied for a medical centre permit in Chirnside Park through Lilydale shire. It took more than a year for the paperworks of the medical centre planning to get through. Then the parts came together and the name for the first fully bulk billing medical centre in Chirnside Park became Chirnside Park Family Clinic. This medical centre is close to Chirnside Park Shopping Centre while very convenient to people living in the residence nearby in the old part of Chirnside Park. The medical centre aims for the highest standard of primary care to this growing region.
