Welcome to 

Lejeune Family Medical Practice

The Lejeune Family Medical Practice represents a return to more traditional family medicine where there is a great emphasis on 'continuity of care', with myself, Dr. John James, and my colleagues offering thorough supervision of all your health needs.

The Practice is named after Dr. Jerome Lejeune, an outstanding doctor and geneticist who was renowned for his care of his patients, especially children with disabilities. He died several years ago and is buried in Paris.

We have a team of dedicated practitioners who work together with our nursing and administrative staff to deliver the highest level of service.

NEW : Walk-In Appointments Now Available 

NEW:  Better Consult     AVAILABLE NOW... 

We are currently trialling a system where you receive a text message prior to your appointment asking you to join/login to 'Better Consult'.

Our aim is to encourage patient-centred care with more accurate patient information provided by completing a short interview prior to your appointment, therefore giving more time with your Doctor focusing on your health outcomes.
