About Queen Street Clinic
Queen Street Clinic is a purpose built practice that first opened its doors in 1990. Doctors Nigel & Judith Bacon, along with Doctors Michael & Kerry Harding built the practice to create a family orientated place for families in the Clarence Valley to feel comfortable and receive quality health care.
Our aim is to provide comprehensive and ongoing medical care in a general family practice atmosphere.
Doctors and staff at Queen Street Clinic are dedicated to creating an atmosphere of well-being and comfort, to offer patients the best in medical services and facilities, and to the continuous search for opportunities to improve all processes. Ethical healthcare practices and respect for the rights of patients are at the core of our philosophy. The image and reputation of our clinic is very important to us. The Associates and our Practice Manager cultivate an environment in which loyalty, integrity, honesty and mutual cooperation are standard values in our dealings with staff, patients, specialists and all other individuals who come into contact with us.
