Why are there no patient testimonials on our website?

The medical community in Australia must adhere to the standards set by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). This organisation is responsible for the registration and accreditation of 10 health professions across Australia including the Medical Board of Australia. AHPRA is responsible for the Code of Conduct regarding Advertising of these 10 health professions.

Earl Owen wrote a 3 letter page outlining the training of Dr Lekich and why he chose Dr Lekich as his successor. This letter was on our website under our testimonials but because of AHPRA guideline it was taken off the website—if you would like to read the letter, please contact our office.

AHPRA specifically prohibits the use of testimonials or purported testimonials

Testimonials are prohibited because there is no way for the public to check their validity, so there is always the possibility of them being misleading. For this reason, you won’t find any testimonials on our website.
