Dr Polina Smerdova at Queen Street Medical Centre, Moruya

Dr Polina Smerdova

MBBS


I graduated from the North-Western State Medical University, one of the major Russian universities for medical studies, in 2011. Following a comprehensive postgraduate training program in leading hospitals, I went on to specialise in General Practice with special interests in Neurology, Mental Health and Musculoskeletal Medicine.

For me, being a GP means everyday empathetic engagement with patients and finding professional fulfilment in tackling a wide interdisciplinary range of physical and mental health issues. I am happy and proud to offer my skills (but hopefully not my exceptional skills in managing frostbite!), experience and dedication to the South Coast community. When not being a doctor (though one never actually stops), I’m a keen traveller and enjoy bushwalking, bicycle riding and snowboarding.

Dr Tim Shepherd

MBBS (Monash), DRCOG, FACRRM


Thirty-two years ago, I began my GP career at QSMC. In the early days, I was a Visiting Medical Officer at Moruya Hospital – Obstetrician, Anaesthetist, rural GP, father of 4 and, in some spare time, a volunteer doc overseas. I love the longevity of our team in our practice – its evolution of new people and the development of our new surgery. I am still surfing, kayaking, photographing, hiking, travelling – and happily married. I am a grandfather of 2 – fantastic!
