Keep Dr Saeid Tahmasebi at Ponds Medical Centre

Dr Saeid Tahmasebi joined Ponds Medial Centre in October 2015.  

The Department of Health has requested that Dr Tahmasebi stop working at Ponds Medical Centre and relocate to a rural region to complete the final 2 years of his moratorium. 

We would like this petition to be the voice of our patients to let Canberra know that we are devastated to lose our Doctor, and ask that they allow Dr Tahmasebi to remain here to serve our community.

Dr Tahmasebi has built a strong and loyal patient base over the past 4 years. This is largely due to the fact that Dr Tahmasebi is available to his patients - he works full time  covering evenings and on Saturday and Sunday, times when our patients need him most.  He is a caring, compassionate and a highly respected Doctor who will be sorely missed by his patients and colleagues.  

Ponds Medical Centre patients are made up of a diverse demographic including young families with both parents working full time. Our practice grew very quickly, especially in the after- hours periods due to being the only medical centre in The Ponds open past 6pm and open both Saturdays and Sundays. We are equipped with a treatment room to handle minor emergencies and accidents, therefore contributing relief to our very busy Emergency Departments at Blacktown, Westmead Childrens’, Westmead and Hawkesbury hospitals. Our community will suffer with the removal of an established full time Doctor at Ponds Medical Centre.

We urge our patients to please support our petition to keep Dr Saeid Tahmasebi here at Ponds Medical Centre where he can continue to be of service to our patients in our community.

Ponds Medical Centre and Dr Saeid Tahmasebi.
