Shenton Avenue Medical Centre was founded by three of the most devoted family doctors in Perth’s northern suburbs: Dr Sam Hanna (MBBCH, AMC, FRACGP), Dr Julius Tan (MBBS, MAFP, FRACGP) and Dr Nash Qamar.

All 3 doctors have more than 2 decades of medical experience and they work together to provide and operate a complete and holistic medical clinic. It is our experience that ensures patients are treated with the highest level of care.

A doctor of 24 years, Dr Sam Hanna has spent more than a decade working in the Joondalup area after a life that has taken him several times around the world. Originally from Egypt, Dr Hanna is fully certified to practice medicine both in Australia and the USA.
