Visiting Specialists

Although the hills are a beautiful part of the world, we are isolated from many of the main medical hubs. In order to reduce travel and provide more comprehensive care for our patients, Emerald Medical Centre is currently working to bring specialists to Emerald.

Please contact our staff if there are certain specialists you would like to see at Emerald Medical Centre, so we can try to cater for your needs.
