MAIN LOCATION

Carlton

247 Bouverie Street, Carlton, VIC 3053

This is the “engine room” for Dr Tan’s practice. If necessary, Dr Tan can see patients here most days of the week so it is usually the best place to go if you want to see her quickly. It has been carefully selected for its central Melbourne location, excellent parking availability (plenty of metered street parking all along Bouverie St. and University Square carpark is right next door) as well as its proximity to major arterials and all modes of public transport. There is prominent signage out the front. Wheelchair access is available. If you plan to drive here, please note that it is just one door from the intersection with Grattan Street, across the road from the University of Melbourne. If you want to come by public transport but are not sure how to, try looking up http://www.victrip.com.au.

SATELLITE CLINICS

Otway Neurosurgery Clinic

Hamilton Base Hospital, Hamilton, VIC 3305

Dr Tan had been providing a monthly neurosurgery outpatient service to South Western Victoria from the coastal city of Portland since January 2012. It proved to be very popular with patients from Portland, but also drew referrals from Warrnambool, Heywood, Hamilton and even Mount Gambier. In October 2013, the Portland clinic shifted inland to Hamilton Base Hospital, because Dr Tan was given the capacity to perform selected spinal and peripheral nerve surgeries on suitable patients at Hamilton Base Hospital. Although Dr Tan presently has only one four hour operating list per month at Hamilton, this has been a very positive development not just for the locals in this area but also for rural Victoria because even until now, the inhabitants of large Victorian cities like Geelong and Ballarat have had no choice but to travel to metropolitan Melbourne for any spinal surgery, as it simply has not been available in their city. All appointments for the Hamilton clinic must be made by calling or emailing the Carlton office. Wheelchair access is available.
