Well-being means to be fully born, to become what one potentially is; it means to have the full capacity for joy and sadness, or, to put it still differently, to awake from the half-slumber the average man lives in and to be fully awake - Erich Fromm

Welcome to Valla Beach Health Centre!

For many years the residents of Valla Beach were left with no choice but to drive to neighboring towns for their health care. A long time resident of Valla Beach, Dr. Fi Lam believed the time had arrived for the establishment of the Valla Beach Health Centre.

Dr Lam saw a growing population, with no quick access to medical care. She saw a need for an integrated practice that will provide care for both the very young and the growing group of retirees that now call "Valla" home. She saw a place she could practice “her” type of medicine, a totally integrated modality that encompasses the mind, the body, and the spirit. A place where not only the “disease” is treated, but the “dys - ease” that is often the cause of human ailments. She saw a place that was staffed by locals, providing the best possible health care for locals, in an environment that was welcoming, calm and stress free.

Her philosophy is simple: to provide the best possible health care to the residents of Valla Beach without their need to travel.

The Clinic is located in a house nestled on the north side of Valla Beach. The property, surrounded by lush tropical gardens, creates a welcoming relaxed environment for both doctors and patients. There is plenty of parking both on and off site and the cool shaded verandah provides a welcome alternative waiting area. Children are well catered for with play areas in both the waiting room and the doctor’s office, which offer a comforting diversion for young children while they are waiting.

Valla Beach Health now has a Sullivan Nicholaides Pathology Collection Depot on site that serves local residents so they do not have to get onto the Pacific Highway for their blood collection.

Dr. Fi and staff look forward to caring for all Valla Beach residents in the future.
