      What a lovely practice. Best in Brisbane. Like the old "family" doctor. Didn't feel I was just 'a number'. Dr Paul is the best and his practice definitely has me as a long term patient. I don't want to go anywhere else!
      Could be improved: Nothing. Perfect.

      I have been taking my father-in-law to Dr Paul for about three years now. He is very thorough with him, he does not procrastinate on matters if he is not sure he sends you off to a specialist and always follows up with information that we can understand. Recommend Dr Paul as a caring family doctor

      We are so happy that Dr Paul now has his own medical centre. He has looked after my family for over 3 years now and we will follow him anywhere! If you want a family doctor who genuinely cares, listens and goes to any length to help you, go see Dr Paul and his team at Chermside.
