A Little Bit About Me...

My name is Dr Tanya Obertik and I am a GP in the Sunshine Coast area of Queensland.

I was originally born in South Africa, but completed my medical education in Europe before moving to England to complete my training as a Doctor and then further specialising in General Practice.

I relocated to Australia in 2009 and have been practicing as a GP in Queensland ever since. Currently I practice in Nambour and Palmwoods and am available for consultations Monday to Friday. Both practices are private billing, however, bulk billing is available for children under the age of 16 and those with a Pension or Concession Card.

It is always a pleasure to meet new patients so please browse my website to find out more information. If you would like to book an initial consultation, please contact the medical practice of your choice to arrange a suitable appointment.

In 2015 I am very proud to have become involved with the Coastal Womens Health Clinic, a brand new purpose built clinic dedicated to providing women of the Sunshine Coast with specialised care for their medical needs.

As a professional woman I have decided to offer an evening clinic aimed at those women, like me, who just don't have the time during a busy day to get away from work. Please contact the clinic to make a suitable appointment.

My Current Medical Practices

I am currently practicing from three medical centres in the Sunshine Coast located at Nambour, Palmwoods and Cotton Tree. My consultation hours are;

Currently unavailable at Nambour

(07) 5441 1455 - Nambour

My standard consultation time is 10 minutes for GP Clinics and 20 minutes at the Coastal Womens Health Clinic. Please note that a standard consultation is generally limited to examine, diagnose, treat and discuss one medical issue. If you require multiple medical issues to be examined, I highly recommend that you book an extended consultation. If you feel that you need an extended consultation, please book two consecutive consultations when you make your appointment, this will ensure that I can spend an extended time with you, without jeopardising the appointment times of other patients.
