Dr Ryan Partridge BSc, MBBS, FRACGP is a graduate of the University of Queensland Medical School and a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

Dr Partridge has been working in general practice since 2012 with the majority of his work in regional towns on the Mid North Coast including Dorrigo, Bellingen and the Nambucca Valley.

In addition to his primary medical degree, he is currently undertaking additional studies to complete a Masters of Internal Medicine with the University of Sydney.  As a Clinical Lecturer with UNSW Medicine, he is actively involved with the local Rural Clinical School teaching medical students of all year levels.

Dr Partridge is interested in all aspects of general practice, and is particularly interested in difficult to diagnose conditions as well as the management of complex/chronic medical conditions.  He strongly believes that lifestyle measures are the first step in tackling chronic medical conditions.  His strategy for chronic pain management is to assist with lifestyle interventions rather than prescription medications.

Outside of work Ryan enjoys: fly fishing, hiking, surfing and working in his garden.
