MBBS FRACGP | RACGP Examiner | EVGPT Clinical Supervisor
Dr. Darren Asuncion is the Principal General Practitioner at Surrey Street Family Clinic. Originally from the Philippines, Darren moved to Australia at an early age and he completed his primary and secondary education in Melbourne’s South East.
With a strong interest in healthcare, Darren was accepted into Monash University and completed his medical training in 2004.
His medical residency took him to the Mornington Peninsula where he trained predominantly at Frankston Hospital and completed clinical rotations in Rye, Dromana, Mornington and Somerville. Darren was granted Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 2009 and due to his love of the Peninsula lifestyle decided to call Mount Eliza his home.
From 2009 to 2015 Darren worked at Eramosa Family Medical Centre in Somerville establishing himself as a dedicated general practitioner with a passion for family health, preventative medicine and paediatrics. Feeling the need to create his own patient-centred healthcare environment, Darren founded Surrey Street Family Clinic with a vision to change the traditional look and feel of primary patient care without compromising on the quality of services delivered.
In his personal life Darren is a sports fanatic with a particular interest in basketball and golf, which is another reason why he fell in love with the Mornington Peninsula.
