caring for you & your family

The Doctors, Greenmeadows, is a purpose-built medical centre, and is part of a cluster of healthcare facilities at 522-524 Kennedy Road. Radius Pharmacy and Greenmeadows Physiotherapy are located within the centre, and HB Radiology is on the same site.

We provide a full family general practice service. Facilities include three acute treatment bays for accident and medical treatment, consultation rooms for the three general practitioners, a room for specialist nurse clinics and a therapy suite for anthroposophical nursing therapies, which include a special form of light rhythmical massage, application of herbal compresses and bath therapy.

The Doctors, Greenmeadows is a satellite clinic of The Doctors Napier and enrolled patients are invited to attend the Napier clinic at 30 Munroe St if you need care at weekends or after Greenmeadows closes.
