About Us

About Synergy Specialist Clinic

We are medical associates who work together to provide world-class care to Australians.

Our Mission

Focus on Recovery: We believe in putting every possible effort into maximising functioning and helping you to discover the best version of yourself. Our primary objective is to focus on recovery in all possible domains, such as work, relationships, family life, social engagement and recreational aspects of your life.

Holistic and Comprehensive Care: We believe in the comprehensiveness of assessments and treatments. We also provide holistic care by engaging both in-house and external health professionals.

Community-Focused Care: We know that care in the hospital can impact your family and work. We provide various interventions to keep your care in the community where possible.

Patient-Focused Care: Everyone has a unique mental makeup, strengths and areas for improvement. Through robust assessments, we identify these factors and develop a tailored treatment.

Modern Care and Innovation: Dr Garg and colleagues have affiliations with local universities. We actively take part in the appraisal of recent advances and believe in the early adoption of new and emerging treatments. We also contribute to scientific literature and research.
