Dr Maria Vartanyan, will be joining DCMC in February 2020
Dr Maria Vartanyan, fluent in English and Russian., is a second year GP Registrar who graduated with honours overseas in 2009 (Russia) and relocated in Australia in 2013. She had a great pleasure working with Eastern Health, the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital and Queensland Health since 2015. She hopes her overseas experience as ENT will serve the needs of our community members suffering from ear, nose and throat issues, as well as vertigo.
Maria has found the variety of general practice exciting and she enjoys being the “go-to person” for any health issue. Skin cancer medicine is one of her special interests. Outside of work she spends her leisure time reading, salsa dancing and playing badminton with her husband (surprisingly good cardio workout).

Dr Tony Rogers
In 1977 on a visit from the USA en route to England I was recruited for a 12 month locum at Diamond Creek Medical Centre- and I’m still here.
At first because of my American obstetrics training I delivered many babies. Many of those babies have children of their own, some quite grown up and now having children of their own.
General Practice has suited me because I am a people person and enjoy talking with people. As a local resident of Diamond Creek until 2012 I raised my family here and was involved in local sport teams and the like.
During my long sojourn in Diamond Creek Medical Centre I have enjoyed several little side practices- GP Liaison at Breast Screen, mentoring at the then Victorian Advanced Training Program, golf –locum visits to Ireland for 10 years.
An interest in Skin Cancer medicine lead to the formation of Molescreen Australia based in Camberwell. Now days I am a part time GP here, filling in when needed and always glad to see old patients and welcome the new ones to DCMC.
