Dr Ben Grant



I grew up in Victoria, and completed my medical training in Perth, WA through the Australian Military.  I have continued to study working towards being a great Specialist General Practitioner.  I believe no one’s health journey is ever the same, and believe it’s about finding not only the right way through it, but your way, keeping you central to all decision making and keeping you well informed through the process. I aim to bring my extensive background and experiences in elite military and sports medicine to your healthcare journey. As a Specialist GP, I enjoy all aspects of medicine, and really enjoy complex medical care, mens health, sports medicine, including concussion and paediatric injuries, and acute injury management. I also enjoy helping people with their weight management journey, as I am also a qualified clinical and sports dietitian. As a former head of one of Australia’s elite Underwater Medicine Unit’s within the Royal Australian Navy, I am happy to conduct all types of Diving Medicals.
