Dr Abid Vatani


I completed my medical training at Aarhus University in Denmark. I have been living and practicing in Australia since 2004 and in the Townsville region since 2011.

My aim is to provide an excellent level of care by understanding the individual concerns of each patient. I believe in the importance of excellent communication to build relationships with individuals and families. My experience in primary health care in the community has a focus on preventive health measures.

My particular interests lie in Women’s Health, Sexual Health, Skin Cancer and Paediatrics. I am qualified to perform IUD insertion and have also completed training in Skin Cancer Medicine. My ongoing work as a surgical assistant gives me valuable experience and I take pride in my ability to keep my skills and knowledge up to date in order to provide best practice for my patients.
