  • Dr Sharwan Narayan MBBS, GradDipMedSon, BAppSc, DipDiaRad & ASAPTC


    Sharwan joins our practice on Monday 11th February 2019.

    I grew up on a small and remote island in Fiji, surrounded by poverty but an abundance of natural resources, parental encouragement, commitment and their sacrifices changed the course of my life. Hard work, sacrifice, discipline, dedication, determination and acheiving goals beyond expectations have made me the person I am today.

    I graduated with Diploma in Diagnostic Imaging in 2001 and in 2008 graduated with Bachelor of Applied Sciences (Medical Imaging Technology) from Queensland Institute of Technology both with distinctions.

    After working in medical imaging for 10 years I went on and completed a Diploma in Medical Sonography and later Masters in Medical Sonography from University of South Australia in 2012.

    I completed post-graduate Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from Sydney School of Medicine at University of Notre Dame in 2015. During my clinical years I worked at St Vincents Hospital, Sacred Heart Palliative Care, Mater Private Hospital, Hawkesbury District Hospital, Royal Northshore Hospital and Munin Hospital in Rwanda.

    I completed my internship and resident years working in various medical and surgical departments including neurology, respiratory, general surgery, vascular surgery and orthopaedic surgery. I recently completed 12 months of senior resident medical year in ED at Gosford and Wyong Hospital and I truly loved the organized chaotic environment of emergency medicine.

    General Practice with a subspecialty in Emergency Medicine is my passion. I believe consultations, primary care, acute & chronic management and ongoing individualized patient care is a life's journey and being a GP offers me the privilege and honor to provide that service to the general public.

    Daniel will join our practice on Monday 18th November, 2019.

    Originally from the United Kingdom, I trained at St Thomas's Hospital Medical School in London and graduated in 1989.  I emigrated to Australia in 1990, as soon as I could afford the air fare!

    After many years on the West Coast, I relocated to the NSW Far South Coast with my young family in 2013. We all fell in love with the stunning views, clear air, amazing beaches and great fishing!

    I am excited to join the Moruya Medical Centre after six years in General Practice further down the coast.  I bring a wide range of medical knowledge,with particular interest in skin cancer, anxiety and drepression and preventative health care across all age groups.  

    When not working, I like to spend my time fishing and whale watching with my family, following international cricket and looking after the veggie patch (now in its fourth year).

    My favourite quotes - "There is no security on this earth; there is only opportunity"- Douglas MacArthur.  "If you think you can do a thing, or think you can't do a thing, you're right"- Henry Ford. 

    We are excited to welcome Daniel to our team
