Dr Deepa Balakrishnan
Dr Deepa Balakrishnan (MBBS, FRACGP) has been working at One Life Medical since 2017. She finished her medical training in 1997 in India and worked in India and Singapore before coming to Australia in 2005. She worked at the QEII, Royal Brisbane and Prince Charles Hospitals and decided to leave specialty training for General Practice training and she loved it! Her passion has inspired a few of her toddler patients to decide to become doctors too!
She has special interests in Cardiology, Geriatrics, Diabetes and Preventative Medicine. She feels that the experience she gained at the hospitals has helped her immensely in managing chronic diseases in the community. She speaks English, Malayalam, Hindi and Tamil.
Dr Deepa is the mother of two beautiful girls. She can be found in her tiny garden tending to her roses on the weekend.
