Miami Village
Medical Practice


Welcome to Miami Village Medical Practice


Miami Village Medical Clinic opened in its current form, fully renovated and newly-equipped, in March 2013. Dr John Houston, who has been practising in the area since 1988, moved his practice to the village at that time to join RN Lianne Shiell who had been the practice nurse in its previous form.

John was joined by Dr Kate Taylor in 2014 and more recently by Dr Vipul Patel in 2019.   Together they have forged a strong, traditional family practice.

The practice enjoys a diverse demographic, providing for the elderly of the Miami and Burleigh area, through to middle-aged and young families and their children.

The nursing staff are widely experienced with proficiency in midwifery, childhood immunisation, cervical screening, wound management and general treatment room activities. The practice boasts a fully-equipped treatment room with state-of-the-art facilities.

The reception staff have been hand-picked for their sensitivity to patients’ and doctors’ needs, and their excellent reception desk skills.

In 2018 Rick McKee took over the operations of the Practice. Rick has over twenty years’ experience as a medical practice owner and manager. Rick works tirelessly to maintain the smooth, efficient running of the practice.  He has particular expertise in maintaining ‘cutting edge’ technology with computers, medical software, internet etc, and keeping the practice up-to-date with modern electronic direct billing and banking practices.  He recently upgraded the practice decor to create a fresh, modern ambience.

The practice is located within the Miami Shopping Village, a busy boutique centre with a unique community feel.  There is plenty of parking, with a variety of other retail outlets to complement the appeal of the medical practice, including pharmacy, veterinary surgery, BWS liquor outlet, hairdresser, butcher, IGA, various eateries, coffee shops, and petrol station.

Patients frequently compliment the staff on the friendly and welcoming nature of the practice.

Our staff show a genuine interest in the welfare and lives of the patients.
