Dr Warren Policha

DrWarren

GP Registrar

Warren has spent over 20 years in healthcare starting as a physiotherapist working mainly in Orthopaedics and Emergency Medicine in Central Victoria. After completing the MD course in Wollongong, he returned to Central Victoria where he has continued to practice medicine and will happily talk to anyone who will listen about his young family. Although Warren still maintains his interest in musculoskeletal medicine from his days in physiotherapy, he also enjoys all areas of General Practice including General Medicine, Paediatrics, Mental Health and Health Prevention.

Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family and trying to stay active as much as his injury riddled body will allow.
