Dr Sharon Woolf started the practice at 142 Burke road as a solo practitioner in 1981. In 1984 the practice moved to larger premises at 177 Burke road where it was able to expand and develop.

In those early years more doctors joined the practice, during which time Dr Natalie Taft and Dr Lisa Prichard joined the partnership.

We now have eleven part time General Practitioners and three Practice Nurses working at the practice. We also have Melbourne Pathology on site.

The doctors at Glen Iris Medical Group remain committed to providing quality family medicine in a doctor owned and operated practice. They continue to respond to the changing environment and are early adopters of new technology and innovation within General Practice with the common goal of striving for excellence in all aspects of our practice.
