Dr. Tamsin Franklin
General Practitioner and Principal of Turn The Corner
I am the owner and principal General Practitioner. I qualified in Australia and hold a Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. I live in Northcote and am very proud of my team who all work hard to provide a high quality personal service. I called my General Practice Turn the Corner Medical Clinic because I believe in helping my patients feel healthy and make changes to achieve this.
I help you explore your health concerns and prevent an issue that has just started from going on to become a permanent problem. If you have a permanent problem, I work with you to manage this so that it isn’t dominating your life and preventing you from enjoying being alive. I listen carefully and spend time and experience to reach a point where you can be confident that you are no longer troubled.
Managing aging to enable people to remain independent, engaged with life and emotionally content is important to me as a doctor and I have built a strong network of allied health practitioners and specialists that I can access to help provide for those with complex care needs.
In less esoteric terms, I have extensive experience in managing mental health issues, I am an advocate for women in terms of our reproductive choices, and as such can insert IUD devices as well as manage shared care of pregnancy. I have always been active and as such enjoy sports medicine, as well as weight loss and fitness improvement.
