Dr Tessa King
Currently based at Hawthorn Medical (and not South Yarra Medical) as to avoid GPs working across multiple sites during the Covid pandemic
Tess graduated from Deakin University Medical School in 2012. She worked and trained for three years as a hospital and emergency doctor at the Austin and Monash Health before moving into general practice. She has completed a post-graduate certificate in Emergency Medicine and in 2019 she gained her Fellowship with the Royal Australian College of General Practice.
Tess enjoys all aspects of general practice and has particular interests in emergency medicine, women’s health and paediatrics. She also has an interest in mindfulness, fitness and nutrition.
Before studying medicine Tess was a playwright in residence at a major theatre company in Toronto, Canada. She’s had her plays produced overseas and in Australia and she currently writes and medical advises for a number of television shows. When she’s not working as a GP or writing, Tess enjoys spending time with her two children, doing CrossFit and travelling.Book Now Online
