Women’s Health

All doctors at our practice can offer diagnosis, treatments and advice on issues affecting women and girls of all ages.

Our female doctors, Dr Joan Gilsenan and Dr Mary Murchan possess a depth of experience and expertise which ensures each female patient will receive the comprehensive, holistic care that our patients need. It is advisable to pre-book appointments 2/3 weeks in advance, where at all possible. This ensures that you will have a consultation with your doctor of choice, thus establishing and strengthening the professional relationship with your doctor.
