ABOUT US
ABOUT FISHER FAMILY PRACTICE
Fisher Family Practice is a privately owned, family-run business.  We consider ourselves to be experts in healthcare and we strive to maintain our excellent reputation at all times. 

Our practice has been here in some form for over 30 years, with the current owner, Dr Martin Liedvogel, being at the helm since 2006.  Since this time, we have seen the practice almost double in size and patient capacity. 

Fisher Family Practice is a teaching practice.  We work to ensure that the newest generation of doctors maintain the excellent standard we set for ourselves.  We host general practice registrars, medical students and nursing students.  

Fisher Family Practice has "little sister" practices in Holder Family Practice and Fisher Allied Health.  Holder Family Practice came under the umbrella of Fisher Family Practice in February 2016.  Fisher Allied Health was opened in April 2016.  Both are designed to extend services to the Weston Creek community and beyond.  
 
We take a "whole of team" approach to healthcare.  Everyone,       from your GP to the front desk staff, work harmoniously to obtain    
the best health outcomes possible. 
COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS
Fisher Family Practice is the proud supporter of a number of community partnerships.  We have loaned many thousands of dollars to microbusinesses in developing countries through KIVA (see www.kiva.org); we have supported Awareness Cambodia through monthly donations for over 10 years (supported in part by our donation box at the front desk, see www.awarecam.org.au); and we run a year-round collection box for Communities At Work, who pass non-perishable food items onto families in need.  

We also choose to be environmentally sustainable whenever possible, by purchasing all our toilet paper and tissues through Who Gives A Crap (www.whogivesacrap.org.au).  This company not only makes great quality, recycled toilet paper and tissues, they also donate 50% of profits to establishing toilets and sanitation in developing countries.  All our scrunchable plastics are also collected to return to RedCycle (www.RedCycle.net.au) who turn plastic bags into park benches and sporting equipment.    

We encourage everyone to support their charity where they can. 
 
'We love our kids, and we love our community.  This doesn't end at Weston Creek - it's a global community - and we feel compelled to cherish and support it.  Our desire to help Awareness Cambodia stemmed from a trip we took in 2006, and saw firsthand the challenges Cambodian children faced.  Helping KIVA arose from our believe that empowering women to earn an independent living helps children stay in school.  And our environmental support?  It's simple.  This is our world, and we are   obliged to take care of it."
- Kylie and Martin

Our practice is always focused on high quality patient care, while providing a friendly and supportive atmosphere.  We are supported by a team of experienced Practice Nurses. The practice enjoys professional management support, which includes support with chronic disease management.
