Goondiwindi is the envy of many rural communities due to its number of doctors. And now there are some new ones in the house.

Dr Navjot Brar: Nav was born and raised in Canada and completed her training in Redcliffe. Despite being Canadian, Nav still complains about the cold!

Dr Nabil Hasan: Nabil was born and raised in Winnipeg, Canada where he studied Microbiology. He then moved to Australia to study medicine. Nabil enjoys all manner of quiet stay-at-home actives, particularly reading and watching movies.

Dr Brett Duckworth: Brett was born and raised in Penrith, NSW, and completed his training in Ipswich. Despite being tall, he says he is a terrible basketball player.
