Travel Directions

PAINCARE is at Ascot Office Park; Level 3, Building C, 95 Ascot Avenue, Greenlane. This is a large building at the “corner” made by Greenlane East and the Motorway, alongside the entrance to Ellerslie Racecourse and opposite the Novotel Hotel. Access to the building is via Ascot Avenue. You will pass through two roundabouts on Ascot Ave on the way to the building. Bodytech is on the ground floor and is a good landmark. There is also prominent signage for a radiology clinic (SRG) which is in the same building.

We are also only a short walk from the Greenlane Railway Station via a pedestrian underpass.
