Welcome to The Grasstree Medical Practice.
The Grasstree Medical Practice is a private general practice, located next to Lismore Base Hospital in central Lismore. It was established by Dr Victoria Yang in 2012 following a complete refurbishment of the premises.
Dr Yang came to Australia from China 25 years ago, initially to work in Medical Research. She went on to conduct research in Genetics and Environmental Medicine before returning to Clinical Medicine, latterly as a General Practitioner. Dr Yang relocated to Lismore in 2006, where she developed a passion for country practice, simultaneously falling in love with the many attractions of the Northern Rivers Region, none more so than the people. As a consequence, she and her husband decided to settle in the area permanently with a view to establishing a General Practice to serve the rural communities.
It is our desire to provide the Healthcare services that we would like to receive ourselves. As result of this vision, we established the Grasstree Medical Practice. It was designed and constructed to maximise the natural light and fresh airflow to create a healthy environment for both patients and staff. It now has several modern, light, airy consulting rooms complemented by a large treatment room. For the comfort of patients, we have designed an open, peaceful lounge waiting area that more than meets current General Practice accreditation standards.

Our goal is to provide an old fashion personalised healthcare, with focus on education and prevention, so that patients are better equipped to participate in their own healthcare decision-making. So often, medical care has been delivered with more focus on the technical part of medicine but less on the humanities. We see ourselves as an advocate for our patients’ wellbeing, treating each person as a whole; to integrate all healthcare needs in order to achieve the best possible outcome for each individual.
In addition, by utilising modern electronic technology, we expect to enhance the efficiency and delivery of high standards of healthcare, as well as support ongoing professional development for our staff.
