Who are we?

We are a committed group of endocrinologists and physicians providing a high level of expertise for patients in Geelong and the surrounding Barwon South West region, extending down to south-west Victoria.

We offer general endocrinology with particular sub-speciality (and research) interests in bone, thyroid and diabetes.

We strive for clinical excellence and stay abreast of all new developments. We believe in strong partnerships with referring LMOs and being a part of a multidisciplinary team.

We currently have a credentialed diabetes educator as part of the team. Bone density services are also available on-site at University Hospital Geelong.

Where do we practice?

Douglas Hocking Research Institute private consulting suites are located at University Hospital Geelong on Bellerine Street (entrance 3). 

Ward referrals are provided at St John of God Geelong Hospital and Epworth Hospital upon request.


We are a private practice and charge privately on the day of consultation. A valid referral is required for each appointment.
