Chronic Disease Management
Dr. Brett Lamb
GP (MBBS) / Anaesthetics / FACRRM
I am a passionate rural GP who gained my medical qualification at Flinders University studying in Adelaide and the Northern Territory. Before this I worked for several years as a rural and remote physiotherapist. I also have a sub speciality in Anaesthetics and thoroughly enjoy the variety of medical work we see in the Great Southern, mostly in beautiful Denmark, but also Albany and Katanning.
What I enjoy about being a GP:
Being a GP means I’m able to marry my medical knowledge with my past work as a physiotherapist and broader life experiences. Getting to know clients and their extended families is one of the unique privileges of being a rural doctor. As a rural GP there is a wonderful variety to my work including general practice, emergency medicine, acute hospital care, nursing home and anaesthetics.
I’m fond of all the variety that comes with general practice. The people and their stories are endlessly interesting! I have a natural aptitude for musculoskeletal medicine. However, I’m happy to see anyone about anything and if I don’t know the answer I’ll find out!!
I am happily married with four children! Besides spending time with my family I relish toasting to life with friends, exploring our Rainbow Coast and surfing. We’ve always been country people and plan to stay that way!
