Daniel Silver MBBS,
BMedSc, DRCOG, FRACGP graduated from Melbourne University in 1975 and
worked in the Royal Melbourne, Alfred and Mercy Hospitals before training
for general practice in Foster, Sunshine, Nagambie and Daylesford. He moved
to Castlemaine in 1980 and started working as a solo GP in a tiny miner's
cottage in Templeton Street. He purchased the property at 64 Lyttleton
Street in 1982 and after 6 months of renovations it was ready and the
practice was re-located. It has since expanded to include the adjacent building (62 Lyttleton Street) and two subsequent expansions have increased the number of consulting rooms to 9 along with two treatment rooms. In 2015 the waiting room will be extended and automatic doors added to make entry to and exit from the clinic much easier for anyone with mobility disorder.He
has been involved in medical education of undergraduate medical students
since 1981 and in the past 35 years has taught more than 160 medical students
at the clinic. He has also been a supervisor for GP Registrars since 1994 and was a part-time lecturer with the Department
of Community Medicine at Melbourne University for several years.
delivered hundreds of babies at the Mt Alexander Hospital over
the past 2 decades but no longer works as a GP Obstetritian. He still regularly performs meticulous surgery for
the removal of skin cancers. The use of digital photography and dermoscopy in the
clinic has greatly improved the quality of care related to skin conditions.
has for many years been enthusiastic about the use of modern information technology in the
field of medicine and he continues to develop the computer infra-structure
within the clinic to enhance the quality of care provided by all the
doctors and staff. He is the clinic's "computer nerd" and created this website quite a few years ago.
