Dr Khan

Dr Khan retires after 30 years at North Coburg Medical Centre.

Dr Khan founded the Merlynston Village Medical Centre (now known as North Coburg Medical Centre), with Dr Guindi over 30 years ago. Since then, they have remained an integral part of the clinic, having established long and trusting relationships with their patients.

We are going to miss them as much as their long term patients will but they deserve to take a break after serving the local community for such a long time.

Our remaining GPs are very happy to continue caring for their patients which has made their retirement a bit easier knowing their patients will be well looked after.
