DR REBECCA CECE

“20% of women experience menopausal symptoms that significantly impact their lives. Unfortunately there are many misconceptions about HRT and non hormonal treatments for menopause. There are also a number of barriers for women in accessing up to date evidence-based treatments for menopause, including their geographical location. It is highly rewarding to help women navigate the unique health needs that they have around menopause, and a Telehealth platform is a fantastic way to reach them no matter where they are located. I am passionate about providing an empathetic, safe space in which you can discuss all things menopause and I’m committed to help find the treatment best suited to you!”

Rebecca is a GP in Brisbane specialising in Women’s Health. She completed medical school in Adelaide before returning to Brisbane. She completed  a Diploma of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in 2018. Rebecca is located at an inner metropolitan practice in Brisbane; however, she has worked in three outer metropolitan practices in the past. She believes every woman needs a good women’s health GP and is committed to providing this service both in person and via Telehealth.

DR LYNDA NEWMAN

Lynda is a GP in Canberra. She graduated from Melbourne University in 1991, completed a Diploma of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 1994 and obtained her Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners in 1996. Dr Newman worked in emergency medicine for fourteen years.

A serious illness in 2015 caused her to leave the hectic environment of the emergency department and return to general practice where her focus is on the management and prevention of chronic illness. This led seamlessly to the management of menopause, an area where so much more can be done to improve a woman’s quality of life and prevent future disease. Outside of medicine Lynda is interested in all things outdoors – bushwalking, cross country skiing, paddling and travel.

Appointments available on Wednesdays (after hours)

 

DR KELLY TEAGLE
