Dr Manmit Madan came to Australia in February 1997. After running a successful surgery in Warren a town in the Orana Region of New South Wales, with a Visiting Medical Officer attachment to the Warren Hospital for five years, Dr Madan moved to Sydney as his children were studying there. He currently practices in two locations, Quakers Hill and Westmead. It is very hard for him to pick one aspect that he loves about Australia. “I love everything,” he remarks.
Dr Madan began his professional career in Australia as a neonatology registrar in Canberra Hospital. “Working in Australia feels great. It is a great country that welcomes immigrants and gives them equal opportunity,” he says. For him the single most important moment in his career was when he was offered his first job at the Canberra Hospital.
Dr Madan is proud of what he has achieved and looks back at his growth as a doctor and a contributing member of this multicultural country with great satisfaction. He tells all budding entrepreneurs that Australia is a free and welcoming country where talent and diligence is appreciated and recognised. His mantra has always been ‘ethical service’. When he is not practicing medicine, Dr Madan enjoys tennis, movies and sport. He strongly recommends The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, and says it is an excellent read.

Growth? Coming from India with nothing and setting up shop and family in a new country and settling down to make it your home. That is growth.
