Hello, I’m Dr Amanda Adams, and I love being a GP! Being a GP is a privilege. Probably more than any other area of medicine, we get to know patients and their families in depth.
I trained as a doctor, and then specialised in family medicine, in England. I qualified in 1997, and completed my general practice training in 2003.
I became a GP principle in 2005, owning a shared practice until 2011, when my family and I emigrated to the Gold Coast.
I enjoy all aspects of General Practice, and am particularly interested in chronic disease (like diabetes, heart disease, respiratory medicine and gastroenterology), skin cancer, women’s health and mental health.
Gaining my Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 2001, I have maintained a keen interest in all aspects of women’s health, sexual health and contraception. I fit the Implanon (rod) and the Mirena (IUD).
At Haan Health, we like to give every patient ‘VIP’ treatment, with thorough, knowledgeable care, so they feel they have been listened to and looked after. In my spare time, I like to spend time with my husband and 3 children, on the beach, on the water, and in the water.
As a General Practitioner with special interests in Men’s Health, Skin related problems, Family orientated medicine and Sports Injuries. I am very proud to be part of the Haan Health Medical Team.
I achieved by primary medical degree in QLD and am completing my Dermatology Diploma with the Australian Institute of Dermatology in 2015. When I am at home I enjoy keeping active with Golf, Squash and trying my hand at Surfing!
Since joining the Haan Health Team in 2014, I have thoroughly enjoyed making a difference in someone’s health and tailoring your care to meet your entire health needs. I firmly believe your health and wellbeing is more than ‘just a script’ or ‘just one problem’ and each person has their own unique health experience.
So don’t hesitate to come and meet me and let’s get your health back on track now.
I love everything about general practice. I qualified as a medical doctor in 1990 from the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. After working in a hospital for 1 year I decided to go into general practice, and owned my own solo practice in a small town. I was the only doctor in town for 15 years so I got a lot of experience over the years in all areas. After selling the surgery, we moved to a city where I was part of a group practice for 2 years. During this time, I also assisted surgeons during major operations.
My husband and I, with our 2 sons, immigrated to Australia in 2008. I immediately started working as GP in a big medical centre and passed my fellowship exam (FRACGP) in 2010. It is really difficult to choose my favourite part of General practice because I love working with people from all age groups. Female health, paediatric medicine, skin checks and small surgical procedures are special interests.
In my free time, I like spending quality time with my husband and sons.

“When it comes to changing habits and creating a healthier lifestyle I understand that my patients don’t need more information they need simple inspiration. They need encouragement and a reminder to get back to the basics that work. “
Degree qualified as both a Medical GP and Naturopath, Dr Rach uses an integrated approach to medicine that takes into account the bigger picture of her patients overall health. This incorporates putting out the immediate fires with western prescription medicine, whilst also prescribing holistic medicine, healthy dietary and lifestyle habits as preventative measures against disease developing in the first place.
In truth, Dr Rach recognises that the bigger picture of the body’s physical health is more than just diet and lifestyle habits. That mental and emotional health, the surrounding environment, the ability to express yourself creatively, feeling connected in your relationships and in your community, a sense of purpose in life, and having faith or a spiritual connection are all major contributing factors to the overall physical health and sense of wellbeing that an individual experiences. A complex interconnecting balancing act that is unique to each person, a life prescription that can take but a lifetime to fulfill.
Dr Rach is an exuberant explorer of the world, riding dressage horses, working as ski doctor in alpine NZ, hunting for herbal medicine in india. She is also an explorer of the body, mind, emotion, and spirit with a sense of wonder.”
