Ocean Grove is heaven, according to the official diagnosis of one of the town’s newest doctors.
Doctor Eunice Wong, who recently joined the staff of Ocean Grove Medical Clinic, said she was loving her new coastal home after years of working in emergency departments in Hong Kong.
“This town is so lovely, it really is heaven, and the people here are so friendly and nice,” Dr Wong said.
“I really couldn’t be happier.
“I am still learning about the life of a GP but I’m certainly enjoying it as a contrast to life in the emergency ward.”
Dr Wong joined another new arrival in the clinic, Dr Hong Wu, whose family migrated to Australia from China.
“My family settled in Geelong, so I have grown up here and completed my medical training at Melbourne University,“ Dr Wu said.
“It is so lovely being able to be back and so close to my family and it is a fantastic practice here at Ocean Grove.
“I love the life of being a GP talking with patients and everyone here is so friendly.”
The new arrivals bring the full complement of doctors at the clinic to 10. Office manager Jacqui Herron said she was pleased to confirm that Dr Allara Barber would return to the practice later this year.
“It is great to have Hong and Eunice on board now and we are always happy to be able to offer our patients the choice of a female doctor,” Ms Herron said
The practice is continuing its big knit-a-thon for Cottage by the Sea and Geelong Mums.
“We have donated 45 blankets to the Cottage by the Sea and I have truly lost count of the number of scarves we have donated and heaps of teddy bears have found good homes,” Ms Herron said.
