We're thrilled to share with you that our resident GP Dr Giuseppe ‘Beppo’ Pagliaro celebrated an incredible 50 years of services at Hawthorne Clinic in January 2016.
Dr Pagliaro has conducted an estimated 414,000 consultations since joining the Riding Rd practice in January 1966. Caring for the local community, its families and friends has been an incredible journey for Dr Pagliaro who has thoroughly enjoyed meeting and treating so many residents over the years.
"Very much for me, it’s not the scientific side of medicine, it’s the human side that really appeals,” he said. “I’ve had patients who have been there right from the beginning … I’ve got patients I delivered who are now grandparents.“ I have also had very loyal staff with very little turnover. It’s the beautiful gift of continuity. It gives you a warm fuzzy feeling after seeing them for so many years.”
