At FORDESPHYSIO we believe in a multidisciplinary and holistic approach to healthcare. We know we aren't the experts on everything and that sometimes to ensure you get the best outcomes we ask for a little help from our friends. That's why we've created FORDESPHYSIO FRIENDS. It’s a community of professionals who are all working towards a common goal; a healthier and happier you.
Each month we’ll introduce you to a friend of ours. We’ve asked them a bunch of questions so you can get to know them, plus they’ll answer some of the most common questions they get from their clients.
Although we have only recently moved into the area, FORDESPHYSIO's founder Alex has lived in Paddington for over 12 years. We just love the history and vibe of the Paddington community. So it is very important to us at FORDESPHYSIO to be involved in our local community and give back where we can.
If you have an opportunity for FORDESPHYSIO to become more involved in our local community please get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Get Real Conscious Impact
Scott has been involved with the Get Real Exercise Health Education Program since the beginning. Like many of us (did you know 1 in every 5 Australians will experience mental illness), Scott has seen first hand the huge impact Mental illness can have on a person’s behavior, cognitive, and social functions. When the opportunity arose to be involved in an organisation such as Get Real which promotes exercise as being an effective treatment, together with other therapies, in helping patients recover from mental illness it was a no-brainer.
Fun Fact: Scott and Alex are both Pharmacists and first met at the Princess Alexandra Hospital.
