Dr Sanjeeva (Sam) Herath from Complete Health Australia is using our facilities at the Coffs GP Super Clinic to see patients on the Mid North Coast!
Specialists can be hard to access in a regional area and we know how difficult it can be to travel to a major city for the expertise of a specialist, so we are bringing them closer to provide the best health outcomes for our community.
Dr Herath is a nephrologist and a research fellow at Prince of Wales hospital, Randwick. Sam does medical consultations at Prince of Wales hospital and at Kidney Health Australia, Rouse Hill. Sam has an active interest in acute and chronic kidney disease and kidney transplant medicine. He is currently completing a PhD in the area innate immunity in kidney transplantation and also an AKI fellowship at Prince of Wales hospital. He is also a conjoint lecturer at University of New South Wales with an active interest in medical education.
A nephrologist is a type of doctor that specializes in treating diseases of the kidney. Not only do nephrologists have expertise on diseases that specifically affect the kidney, but they’re also very knowledgeable about how kidney disease or dysfunction can affect other parts of your body.
Discuss your needs with your doctor, and let them know about this important initiative to bring a range of specialists to Coffs Harbour for faster, effective health outcomes for our region.
