All GPs are independent Health Practitioners, which means that Pear Tree Family Practice provides administrative support and facilities to them . Each GP effectively runs their own business and Pear Tree Family Practice supports them to do so. As part of professional standards, GPs will collaborate on your care.

The Practice Doctors are fellows of the RACGP (Royal Australian College of General Practice). Upon completion of their medical training, they specialised in General Practice.
