Meadowbank Medical Centre

Primary Healthcare Service



Meadowbank Medical Centre was started in 28th August 1982 by Dr Wellington Tan. By 1990, the practice has grown to full capacity. Dr Tan developed a holistic approach and added a special interest in Acupuncture and Muscular Skeletal and Manual Medicine to the general practice.

In 1992 Dr Yam from Hong Kong joined the practice as an associate to built up his practice in the growing Asian population. Dr Angie Young joined the practice as a locum to serve the needs of women's health with the high Asian population in the practice.

From 2000 Dr Doo became involved in doing locums for Dr Tan on a frequent basis. Last November, after 35 years of working, Dr Tan decided to step down as the principle doctor to spend more time with his ill and elderly mother in Singapore. Dr Doo is now the principal doctor. Dr Tan returns intermittently to do locums and sessions in acupuncture.

From its inception the centre has had a Practice Nurse/Manager that has made the practice run efficiently, smoothly and ensures a great service to the patients. Receptionist Div has been with the practice since 1999.

If you are making your first appointment for a musculo-skeletal and acupuncture treatment please book a one hour appointment.
