Ian Sharrock

Ian is dedicated to preventative and general community medicine, with a particular interest in the health and wellbeing of people with disabilities. A breadth of life experience influences his practice. Born in country Victoria, Ian worked outside medicine—“digging holes and putting up sheds”—before completing his medical degree. A dedicated family man, he has three adult children, including a daughter with a significant intellectual disability.

Ian has further qualifications in tropical medicine, and in obstetrics and gynaecology; and he is an accredited supervisor with the RACGP Family Medicine Program, providing ongoing practical experience for registrars and medical students.

A doctor with Eltham Clinic since 1989, Ian has lived in the area for more than 30 years. Outside work, you’ll find him undertaking restoration projects, volunteering with local disability services and “messing about with old Holdens”.

 

Richard Harrison

Richard comes from a family of doctors, which made medicine an obvious choice for a young man who enjoyed science and people. It’s given Richard a job he really likes and the chance to work with people he admires and appreciates.

Richard discovered Eltham Clinic in 1995, having been lucky enough to have already worked at four fabulous clinics. Still, they didn’t get close to what he found at Eltham—shared values, and a happy, supportive workplace, staffed by good people who are fun to be around and great at their jobs. Richard has also worked as a relief locum in Aboriginal health centres in WA, a practice he is looking to resume now his three sons have finished school.

Outside work, Richard’s main interest is his family, particularly raising his three boys into fine young men who share their father’s love of the great outdoors. Richard has hiked the Kokoda Trail and walked the Overland Track in Tasmania. His patients will know about another of his passions—landscape photography—from the rotating collection hanging on the walls of his room.

Closer to home, Richard lives 15 minutes from work and can be found at the weekends cycling and walking, heading to the MCG to watch the footy or cricket, or looking for out-of-the-way restaurants and back-street galleries.

Richard also enjoys reading—he belongs to two book clubs—and writing, a skill he hones as a volunteer biographer for Eastern Palliative Care.

 

Cameron Martin

Cameron could have ended up working at Treasury, after graduating from Melbourne University with an honours degree in Commerce, but he chose to go back to study something that would allow him to help people more directly. Medicine—particularly general practice—has given him the opportunity to do what he most loves, which is hearing people’s stories and helping them. “There’s never a dull day, and it’s always stimulating.”

Cameron completed his Bachelor of Medicine with Honours in 2002 from Newcastle University. He obtained his Fellowship in General Practice in 2006.

As a partner in the clinic, Cameron appreciates being free to practise medicine the way it ought to be practised—working together with patients on the best treatment for them. If he hadn’t specialised in general practice, Cameron would most likely have chosen obstetrics, because antenatal care is one of the areas of practice he enjoys most.

Cameron runs half marathons, which makes it surprising that he drives the short distance to work. A father of three, he’s grateful for what Eltham has to offer younger children. He loves taking his son and daughters camping, hiking, and plane spotting at the Tullamarine perimeter fence.

 

Tammy So

Tammy appreciates medicine’s mix of art and science, and the connection it gives her to people, not just in the Eltham community but the family-feel of the people who work at the clinic.

She is particularly interested in child health and development. If she weren’t a doctor, she’d be a teacher for the joy of watching children reach their potential.

Tammy is a mother of three playground-loving children.

 

 

Paul Shortis

Paul was drawn to general practice by a desire to help people, and was inspired by positive personal experiences with his own GP. He has particular interests in sports medicine and travel medicine. Paul has practised in hospitals and clinics around the state, and in WA and the Northern Territory.

At home now at Eltham Clinic, Paul values its focus on preventative healthcare.

Outside work, Paul is most likely to be found outdoors. He surfs, bush walks, skis, cycles and dreams of being a professional golfer—“If I could only improve my golf swing”.

 

Joyce Cheng

As a GP, Joyce loves that her work allows her to grow with her patients and their families, playing a positive role in their health and wellbeing. She believes preventative medicine can empower patients to live their lives to the fullest. She has a particular interest in women’s health, preventive healthcare and performing minor surgeries in the clinic.

A Templestowe girl, Joyce feels very at home in Eltham. In her spare time, she loves travel, cooking, yoga, and walks with her labrador.

 

Tim Hsu

Tim graduated from Flinders University in 2013. He has worked across metro and rural South Australia, rural Victoria, and Cairns before settling into general practice in Eltham.

He has special interests in dermatology, skin cancers, and minor procedures. In 2019 Tim underwent additional training on facial skin surgery in the USA.

Outside of work Tim plays baseball, enjoys hiking, free-diving, and wine tasting (in moderation!)

 

Emma Fehmel

Emma completed her medical degree with Honours at Monash University and has worked at a variety of hospital services through Eastern Health. She has interests in all areas of medicine, particularly chronic disease management, women’s health and skin cancers. Emma has a strong focus on patient education and patient centred care.

Outside of work, Emma enjoys reading, travel, baking and walks with her cavoodle
