‘It is with great pleasure that I announce commencement of my out-patient neurology service at the Melton Specialist Clinic.

Having moved to Ballarat fairly recently, I have watched the amazing growth of Melton and I am thrilled at the opportunity to contribute to it. I look forward to being of service to your patients and you.’
