“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.
Hi, I’m Julie
I started working at Haan in February 2020 and now know what it truly feels like to love my job. We have the most friendly, happy & warming family of Doctors, Nurses and reception staff here at Haan.
I started my career doing admin part time in Sydney at the young age of 15 while I was still completing high school. I began to really enjoy this position as the years went on and my love for helping others only grew. I had a short break from working as a medical receptionist when my husband and I decided to start a family.
I moved to Queensland in 2004 and now live here with my beautiful husband and 3 children. During my free time I love to have a coffee and sit by the beach, go shopping & spend time with my family.
The Haan family have opened their arms to me and have shown me what it feels like to be a part of a team. I enjoy seeing both new and familiar faces everyday and being part of the Haan Broadbeach community.
Please come and say hello to me at your next visit! I’d love to see you and get to know you – better – each time.
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.
Hi, my name is Rachel and I am one of the Medical Receptionists here at Haan Health Upper Coomera. I have over 20 years previous experience in Reception and Administration. This is my first Medical role and I enjoy the fast paced nature of working in a busy health clinic environment and interacting with patients.
Haan Health is one of the most welcoming and supportive workplaces that I have been lucky to be a part of. The doctors, nursing and administration staff all work together with the same passion and goal the wellbeing and holistic care of the patient. I feel very blessed and am very proud to be part of the Haan Health family. I look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Haan Health!
My name is Bri, and I am lucky enough to be one 2 receptionist here at our beautiful Upper Coomera practice.
I have approximately 10 years experience working in the Medical field but am still learning every day and hopefully will continue to!
It’s not every day you hear people speaking about the fact that they love their job but since joining the ‘HAAN family’ , I am one of those people.
Meeting and understanding all the different personalities that come through our doors is something I look forward to daily.
Here in Upper Coomera, we boast some of Gold Coasts most amazing and talented General Practitioners’ and registrars, not to mention our fantastic nurse and Allied health services we provided on site. Our caring, passionate staff and state of the art facilities is what sets us apart from all of the rest.
In my spare time i enjoy spending time outside with my crazy and energetic family. We are all Rugby League fans so most of our weekends involve this whether it be watching my partner and our boys play or going and supporting our teams. When we are not doing that, we are always looking for new adventures to go on to see what our beautiful city has to offer.
Come in and say hi to us at HAAN!
