Dr Melissa Cave came to Australia in 2014 and has worked in the Illawarra during that time delivering care to the residents of the local area. Dr Cave qualified as a doctor in 2008, gaining her GP qualification in 2013 in the UK. Having spent 4 years as a midwife in the UK prior to becoming a doctor, her specialist interests include women’s health, contraceptive services and being involved in antenatal shared care.
Her vision is to provide traditional style general practice in a relaxed and welcoming environment. Dr Cave understands the need to spend time with patients and openly avoids the throughput of patients that can happen at some medical centres.
