Dr Amin Gayed

Dr Amin could be the super-hero GP of CCFP. Primary care doctors are usually very adept at preventing disease, but Dr Amin has gone above and beyond the call of duty in this area. He has lead several successful campaigns under the WHO working to eradicate the scourge of poliomyelitis in the Bihara (Egypt) region. We think he deserves the medical equivalent of a super-hero cape for these efforts! (Maybe we could add this to his Crazy-Scrubs-Thursdays outfit?)

Amin brings considerable GP experience to CCFP. He has worked in family medicine since 2003, first in his home country of Egypt, and then completed his Australian primary care specialist training under the RACGP in Western Australia and Victoria before settling with his wife and two daughters in Western Brisbane. He enjoys the full gamut of GP work, but especially enjoys working with the elderly, and those suffering from chronic diseases. In addition to his work as a GP and caring for his young family, Amin has completed the demanding Master of Medicine (Skin Cancer) through the University of Qld and is currently undertaking studies through the University of Sydney in Child Health.

We are grateful for the kindness, calmness and good humour Dr Amin brings to CCFP. His compassion and humanity are evident in all of his interactions (perhaps except for his merciless chess moves), and we look forward to learning new skills in Egyptian cuisine (and maybe some Arabic and Russian language also) under his guidance!
