Summers Avenue Family Medical Practice was initially established in 1994 by Dr Anny Marrett, a passionate and experienced general practitioner who had the vision of providing quality and holistic intergenerational care. Starting out in a humble house on Summers Avenue, she and other like-minded doctors soon gained a reputation for their professionalism, compassion and expertise.
Catering to growing demand, the practice expanded to Mount Colah in 2019, completing the transition in 2022. This move improved patient experience with modern facilities and the increased convenience of expanded on-site parking. Additional services such as the skin cancer and travel clinics have evolved from our desire to best serve the needs of the community.
To date, Summers Avenue Family Medical Practice is proud of its history and achievements, continuing to strive for excellence and innovation in general practice by providing comprehensive, personalised, and evidence-based care to our patients.

At Summers Avenue Family Medical Practice, our goal is to understand and meet the diverse needs, preferences and values of our patients and their families to provide truly personalised care. We believe patient interaction should be characterised by good communication and shared decision making, governed by a culture of respect, empathy and compassion.
Being committed to evidence-based care, we encourage a collaborative approach to self-reflective learning and evaluation amongst our practitioners. Through regular practice discussions, the latest medical advances and developments are discussed to improve the quality of your care.
We recognise that even the best health service can make improvements and deeply value your perspective. By listening to our patients and making continuous quality improvements, we believe that taking on a humble approach and actively listening to patient feedback is essential to fostering a culture of innovation. Please feel free to help us by letting us know where we can improve and do better.
Integral to the regulation of safe and quality general practice throughout Australia, Summers Avenue Family Medical Practice meets the criteria outlined by an independent accreditation agency, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). This ensures our practice attains to the highest standard of medical care by meeting the requirements of the governing national industry standards.
