About us

Our Practice

Hobart Cardiology and Medical Specialists provides an extensive suite of cardiological care. We also offer neurology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, general medicine and endocrinology specialist medical care.

Local expertise along with visiting medical specialists from the mainland allow us to provide a comprehensive cardiological service on-site. For more complicated procedures that are not performed in Hobart, we deliver pre- and post-procedural care.

We welcome enquiries from medical specialists to join our rooms. In particular, along with cardiologists, we are currently seeking respiratory physician/s:

Hobart Cardiology & Medical Specialists are looking for one or more Respiratory Physicians to join our rooms, which has a newly opened respiratory lab and highly experienced scientist. We offer an excellent standard of practice management services in a friendly, welcoming environment and can facilitate accreditation at the Hobart Private Hospital. We would promote your practice so that you could be as busy as you would like to be, as there is only one part-time private specialist servicing Southern Tasmania currently, with one recently retiring, leaving a large gap. Our uniquely beautiful, purpose-built rooms provide a zen-like ambience for both specialists and their patient’s wellbeing.

This position/s would also suit a PhD candidate in a fly in/fly out basis 3 or more days a week.

Hobart has a energetic foodie scene that thrives on fresh local produce. For those that enjoy the arts there is plenty to see and do with festivals, museums, concerts and galleries. Tasmania is a mecca for those who enjoy the outdoors with many scenic trails, historic sites and beautiful destinations for weekend getaways. For family life, there are several top-tier schools close to the city centre, a natural environment of true beauty and excellent sporting opportunities from sailing to hockey. Enjoy affordable, high quality housing just minutes from work and easy access to all amenities.

Contact Jenny Coombes, Business Manager on 0407247006 or Dr Michael Coombes, 0400993711. Enquiries from all specialists would be welcomed and a family team would be accommodated easily in our multi-disciplinary practice.

GP and patient support

We understand that patients require explanations in plain English, and support our consultations with our library of supporting information on conditionsprocedures and healthy living.

We also appreciate that GPs need timely support both at an initial enquiry level, as well as with follow-up communications. Most importantly, we promise rapid access for emergency patients. Accessibility is fundamental to this practice and we work across both public and private hospitals and are located centrally to both Hobart Private and Royal Hobart Hospital.

 

Private hospital care

All of our doctors participate in no gap cover with the private health companies. If you require admission to either Hobart Private Hospital or Calvary, you will not be out of pocket for any in hospital services provided by our doctors.
