About Us

About Us

Our general practice is a family clinic that has been servicing the Cheltenham community for over 40 years. We also offer onsite psychology, physiotherapy, podiatry, a denture clinic, a dietitian, diabetic nurse educator and a practice nurse.
We are an AGPAL accredited practice and had been chosen to train doctors who want to specialise in General Practice.
Our modern comfortable waiting room has a reading nook for children. A large car park is available with a pedestrian ramp and wheelchair to allow easy access to the surgery.


Southland Medical Centre was established in 1970 and has grown to a seven-doctor medical centre that offers a wide range of medical services. Originally in Southland Shopping Centre, the practice moved to its current site in the mid-1980s. The centre underwent extensive renovation and extension in 2005 to incorporate more doctors and include physiotherapy, podiatry, psychologists, a dietitian and a dental prosthetist. Having Medical Staff, Practice Nurses, as well as Allied Health, we are able to work together to provide you with holistic care.  Many of the doctors in the centre have been servicing the Cheltenham and Bayside community prior to the creation of the current clinic; Dr. Shapiro has even delivered the parents of some of his current patients.


Mission Statement

At Southland Medical Centre, we strive to always provide high quality, progressive, and personalised care to build a healthy, supported and well-informed community. All staff in the practice attend regular updates in their profession. This helps maintain the high standards that help us provide the community with the best medical care possible.
