Dr Adrian Chee

Our newest registrar on rotation from Alfred Health is Dr Adrian Chee. The Advanced Physician training position is a six month rotation based at Mildura Cardiology in conjunction with the Mildura Base Hospital.

Adrian completed his Basic Physician Training at Monash and Alfred Health, and is currently an Advanced Trainee in General and Acute Care Medicine, which he hopes to combine with Haematology training. Adrian has previously worked in Mildura several times as a medical registrar, and hopes to return to practice here once he has completed his specialty training. He is also interested in clinical education, and is involved in teaching at both a medical student and junior doctor level.

Outside of work, Adrian has been working on upskilling his culinary skills, as well as having taken up pilates during the COVID lockdown. He highly enjoys the food scene in Mildura and hopes that he can visit Trentham again before he has to leave!"

Cardiac and Specialist Centre

As Mildura continues to grow, so does Mildura Cardiology. The need for further expansion has made it necessary for Mildura Cardiology to relocate its Cardiac & Specialist Centre to 238 13th street Mildura, previously located in the Mildura Health Private Hospital building. The new centre is located four doors down from the main clinic at 230 13th street. This centre provides an outpatient echocardiography service for both adult and paediatric patients. This includes both urgent and non urgent outpatient appointments and a daily inpatient hospital service covering both Mildura Base Hospital and Mildura Health Private Hospital. This busy centre employs five echocardiographers and two reception staff. Visiting specialists include a Paediatric Cardiologist, a Respiratory & Sleep Physician and a Haematologist.    

Dr Dana Forcey

Our newest registrar on rotation from Alfred Health is Dr Dana Forcey. Dana completed both her undergraduate training in Immunology and Pathology, and her MD at The University of Melbourne. Her Basic Physician Training was completed at Alfred Health and the Central Australian Health Service - Alice Springs. She is currently an Advanced Trainee in General and Acute Care Medicine, which she hopes to combine with Nephrology training and she is particularly interested in Indigenous Renal Health. Dana is enjoying all aspects of General Cardiology at Mildura Cardiology, especially ECG reporting and transthoracic echocardiography. She hopes these skills will be useful to her practice in the remote and rural settings in which she hopes to work in future. She enjoys working with the team at Mildura Cardiology and Mildura Base Hospital. Outside of work, Dana enjoys hiking and landscape photography. During the coronarvirus lockdown she has inherited a sourdough starter from Carly (assistant practice manager), and is enjoying competing with Carly and Dr Soward in the pursuit of baking the perfect sourdough bread!
