About Us

The Illawarra Family Medical Centre was founded in 2005 with the aim of creating an environment that allowed doctors to deliver high quality medical care in the ethos and style of traditional family general practice, from a modern, well equipped, and professionally staffed facility.



This approach to medical care was recognised in 2006 when IFMC won ‘New Business of the Year’ at the Illawarra Business Awards. 


IFMC is independently owned and operated by local doctors Elizabeth Magassy, Robert Watson, Rene Dostal, Gary Butler, Peter Allan and Ian McCorkindale.


IFMC offers a total of 16 doctors supported by a practice manager, 5 practice nurses and reception and administration staff. 


Our doctors have many years of experience in, and are committed to, the Wollongong area.  They are all vocationally registered, and many have achieved postgraduate qualifications in their areas of interest. 


IFMC is committed to the education of future doctors and participates in teaching programs with the Graduate School of Medicine at the University of Wollongong.


IFMC aims to provide comprehensive care for patients of all ages, with a focus on preventive medicine to help patients achieve their best quality of life. 


IFMC welcomes all new patients, including overseas students. 


Our modern, fully equipped, air-conditioned practice has:

  • 15 consulting rooms
  • 4 bed modern treatment area with children’s treatment bay
  • 2 spacious waiting rooms with enclosed children's play area and baby change facilities
  • 4 room allied health suite with private waiting room
  • Large undercover car park

All areas of IFMC, including the car park and foyer, are designated no smoking areas. 


Free, ample and secure undercover parking is available for all patients on basement level B2.  

Entry to the car park is via Khan Lane off Denison Street.  Please obtain a ticket from the security guard for free parking.  

Disabled parking spaces are provided. Disabled access to IFMC is via the lift from the car park or ramp from Crown Street. 

Take the lift to Level 1 for IFMC.

IFMC is easily accessible by free bus or train.


IFMC has maintained accreditation by GPA since 2005. 

GPA is an independent organisation that assesses general practices against the standards of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). Accreditation is a voluntary process that ensures IFMC is providing the best practice care for our patients. 


IFMC is proud to have artwork by local artist Edith Furguson, featuring iconic Illawarra scenes, displayed in the waiting room.
