“We completed a Press & Ganey survey which measured the patients experience with the medical centre from seeing an advertisement, to ringing and booking an appointment – right though to seeing the doctor and paying and leaving, there were 13 categories in all that were measured and I thought it was interesting that only three of these categories were in control of the doctor and nurse and the other 10 categories were controlled by the Administration team.”
While studying my Computer Science degree in Melbourne Part-time, I also worked as a Medical Receptionist and Practice Manager at my brothers Medical Centre. 20 years later after working around the globe and also completing a management degree – Here I am.
After completing Computer Science in 1995 I had the opportunity to work in Sydney, Melbourne, The Netherlands and London with short assignments around Europe, U.S.A. and SE Asia. In 2007 I completed my Executive MBA from Henley Business School in London while working for an Investment Management firm.
In late 2009 I returned back to Australia with my family and bought the Niecon Plaza Medical Centre with my wife, Dr. Sonu Haikerwal in 2010. This was an opportunity for Sonu to implement her thorough medicine ideologies and it gave me a chance to use all of my Executive M.B.A. training.
The Haan Health Medical Centre was conceptualised in mid 2013 after we saw a potential location and after a mammoth task with multiple obstacles and lots of opposition we were able to start our dream on time – 5th January 2015.
There are so many people I need to thank for helping us with this journey and I am delighted that all of you were able to attend our opening ceremony on Sunday 4th January 2015.
My name is Felicity and I have been working at Haan Health from the time Raj and Dr. Sonu Haikerwal took over the Niecon Plaza practice. I have over 12 years experience in Medical Reception / Administration and previously worked in a similar position in NSW before moving to the Gold Coast.
I enjoy keeping up with all aspects of the practice and in 2014 Raj and Dr. Sonu sponsored me for some courses which I completed: Certificate IV in Medical Practice Assisting; and the Certificate IV in Health Administration. I was also sponsored for a course in Grief Counselling Training with a focus on Children through Lifeline.
Having a young son has encouraged me to keep fit through Tennis and Soccer, with this year being my first season with a local all-female team. But my passion is having an interest in people and their personal stories. By listening to patients, I have learned so much about their journeys.
The whole team is a family and share a common interest in improving the well being of all patients through innovative and holistic care. I am proud to be a part of Haan Health and excited to grow with it into the future. I love my job, and appreciate the patients who so generously allow me to share their journey with them.
My name is Wendy, one of the five wonderful receptionists’ at HAAN Health Medical Centre. I am very blessed to have worked with some great people over my 25 years in this wonderful crazy busy job, which I love and enjoy every day. And these people at this fabulous centre are no exception.
Our Doctors are the best in the business their caring professionalism is fantastic. Our nurses are so friendly and hard working, caring to all our patients. As for our wonderful receptionist’s Felicity, Diane and myself who have been around for a while now. Experience Plus.
Morgan & Ruth are our newbie’s, learning real quick in the chaos ( organised chaos of course ) they have settled in really well, I am very fortunate to work with these great dedicated hard working women.
We get to enjoy a laugh everyday with each other and the patients, which we all think is very important, to try and brighten their day and ours, especially if they are not feeling very well.
About myself, I enjoy travel, renovating and decorating when I’m not at work, and walking the fabulous beaches that we are blessed with in this great city of ours. I hope to continue to give you friendly and consistent service when you visit our beautiful new premises at Victoria Square. See you soon.
I have been a Registered Nurse for over 40 years and I wanted a change of pace and to work in a place where I can make a difference and where I can see people who have changed positively.
I work on the Ground Floor of the Haan Health facility and am often taking compliments from patients about the beautiful new surroundings.
It is my mission to ensure that you have a good experience right from entering the main door and upon your exit. I also help to plan events in the Health Lounge and manage bookings with the allied health.
My name is Sarah, and I graduated my Diploma in Nursing in 2014. I began working for Haan Health Medical Centre in October last year and have never looked back.
I began thinking about nursing at the age of 14 when I completed my life saving course, spending my weekends volunteering the Gold Coast beaches.
Being able to go home from work each night knowing that I have made a small change in somebody’s life is what excites me to turn up day in day out. It is a privilege to be apart of the Haan health family, and work in such a prestige facility.
Our team at Haan Health ensure we provide thorough, holistic care to each and everyone. We have the latest technology in ensuring all your health care needs are met.
When I’m not at work you will find me hanging at the beach, socialising with friends, camping, exercising and enjoying the company of my beautiful family.
Hello my name is Rhiannon. I graduated with a Diploma of Nursing in 2014.
I transitioned from a medical receptionist to a practice nurse, working across the gold coast. I found my passion for nursing and caring for others after my grandfather had passed away.
I began working here at HAAN Health early this year and fell in love with the place. I am so blessed to be able to work in such a positive and happy atmosphere. All the staff and doctors here are compassionate and thorough with their patient care.
My interests are children’s health, immunisations and chronic disease management. I love working as a practice nurse, helping and encouraging patient’s to reach their goals and improve their health.
It is the best feeling knowing I have made a positive impact in someone’s life.
In my spare time I enjoy reading books, going to the beach, spending time with my family and friends and of course training at the gym!
Hi, my name is Terina and I have just recently joined the Haan Health family.
Before I started here, I completed a Bachelor of Psychological Science because I have a passion for helping others. I couldn’t have chosen a better place to work, as everyone at Haan has the same passion as me! Although I’ve only been here a short time, I’ve loved meeting every patient and working with such a caring team.
Hi my name is Pierre, I’m a registered nurse. I finished my bachelors of nursing at Griffith University at the start of 2015. Before starting at Haan Health I worker as a disability support worker as well as an RN at another medical centre. I could not be happier working here. The Haan family are an amazing group of people to work with and the patients are lovely. My future goals are to further my career in becoming a nurse practitioner or one day follow in my mother’s footsteps and become a doctor. When I’m not at work I enjoy riding my motorbike, driving my car, going to the gym or just being outside having a swim.
