Dr Sinan Allez - GP

I am a proud Turtle GP, who was 'Kalwunised' 14 years ago. I have been enjoying working with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in the Gold Coast, that has become an important part of my life. As I have known many of the members of the community for many years, it feels like I have an extended big family. I love to hear their stories and playing some part in their lives and enjoying a cultural exchange with them.
