About Us

Welcome to Dr Ljiljana Miljkovic-Petkovic

Women have a tendency to put everyone else’s needs before their own, which means that in the excitement of a pregnancy or the routine of everyday life, “women’s health concerns” are often overlooked.

That’s why Dr Ljiljana Miljkovic-Petkovic takes her time to get to know you and how you wish to be treated. She then applies her skills and expertise to provide the best possible care with positive outcomes.

Dr Ljiljana respects the time of busy professionals and mums, offering a choice of appointments any day of the week. Our practice is equipped with only the latest in technology so that our patients can enjoy the convenience of having any scans and tests done at the same time as their appointment.
