Dr Michel Hung

I grew up in Perth and attained my Medical degree in the University of Western Australia.

I trained locally in RPH, SCGH, KEMH, PMH , Bentley Hospital and spent 6 months working in Cottage Hospice.

I have an interest in women’s health, preventative medicine and family medicine.

I like to travel and experience different cultures, their music and food. I also enjoy cooking, but unfortunately the food doesn’t always turn out like they do in the pictures.

I feel it is important to have a well balanced work and family life.

I look forward to meeting you at Mt Hawthorn Medical.
