She relocated from Toronto in 2022 but has lived and worked in rural and urban communities ranging from Cape Town to the Arctic! Her passion for general practice is rivalled only by her enthusiasm for family, food and fitness! She is a keen environmentalist, practiced vegetarian and practicing bushwalker. She has cultivated a niche in women's health and is also working part time at the Women's and Children's Services at LGH.

Dr Alireza Farhangi

I am experienced GP from Iran, having completed my study in Iran in 2005. I have a strong interest in skin conditions, chronic disease care and women's health. My career has taken me to Europe for a time and now here to lovely Tasmania. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with such friendly and amazing people. In my free time I love to emerse myself in nature, music, travels and driving. My native spoken language is Persian (Farsi) but do speak and understand English relatively well.
