Traditional Primary Care GP Practice
Our Mission Is to Provide a Professional & Honest Approach to Health Care
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. We also have allied health providers including a dietitian and podiatrist on site.
