MBBS


Special Interest: Preventative Health, Counselling, Smoking Cessation


I started in General Practice in 1979 and still enjoy patient contact. The most exciting aspect for me is the ability to prevent the most common causes of death and illnesses. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness and renal failure in Australia which can largely be prevented. We are able to prevent heart attacks completely with medication and life style changes. A majority of my consultations revolve around these exciting illness prevention areas. Dr Day prides himself on his punctuality.

I enjoy looking after the whole person and seeing multiple members and generations of the same family. The relationships that we build with our patients over time are the most rewarding aspect of this work. 

I enjoy all aspects of General Practice. Our physical and mental health often take a backseat in our busy lives and I relish the challenge of helping people understand their health and improve where they can.

After working for a few years as a hospital resident, I decided that preventative medicine and the breadth of General Practice was what interested me. In 2018 I began my General Practice training and have greatly enjoyed working in the community.

I am very happy to be joining the team at Harding Street Medical in 2021. I’m a Melbourne local and am fortunate to live in the melting-pot that makes our vibrant culture. General Practice has thus-far given me the opportunity to get to know patients along their journey and work with them to create positive health outcomes. I wish to continue that work here, in all aspects of General Practice. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family and sampling the delicacies on offer around town.

Dr Michael Valente

MD FRACGP




I am delighted to be joining the team at Harding Street. My special interests include skin cancers and skin care, family planning, paediatric and adolescent health. I also like working with older people with complex health conditions. Before working in general practice I worked as a hospital doctor for several years in surgery, and enjoy applying the skills I acquired to perform small skin and other procedures.

When I'm not at work you may find me on the bike path riding (fair-weather only) or running. I like spending time with my family, friends and most of all my new nephew. My passions apart from people are good journalism, interesting places,  good food, wine, the occasional hike, fashion and music.

Dr Clare Wilson





I graduated with honours from the University of Melbourne Medical School in 2012. 

Since then I’ve been fortunate to accrue a wide range of medical experiences, mainly in internal medicine at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, where I’ve completed most of my training before deciding to specialise in General Practice.

My interests are chronic disease management, geriatric medicine and sexual health.

I believe that the doctor-patient relationship is based on mutual understanding, respect and trust.

I see the potential in good primary care and will always aim to provide medical care to the highest of standards.

Dr Jon-Paul Chamoun





Throughout my hospital training, I was interested in various specialties from Aged Care to Paediatrics. Most importantly, I want to make a meaningful difference to patients through all stages of their lives. Therefore, I am drawn to General Practice as it allows me to practice the full scope of medicine. I believe that good communication skills are essential in building rapport with patients. I look forward to guiding patients through their healthcare journey in a holistic and empathetic manner.
