Zac Turner

Zac graduated from Bond University with a Doctor of Physiotherapy in 2017; he previously obtained a Bachelor of Education (Physical Education) from the University of Ballarat in 2013.

Zac’s main area of interest is in treating injuries in athletes, especially overuse, running mechanics and running retraining. This dovetails with his personal sports pursuits as a dedicated swimmer, cyclist and runner; Zac competes in the local Ironman triathlon as well. As a life-long east Gippsland resident (hailing from Orbost) he looks forward to giving back to the community by assisting local athletes.

Outside of work Zac is a devoted family man, and supports Richmond in the AFL.

Roslyn attended Latrobe University as a mature-age student and graduated with both a Bachelor of Applied Science and a Master of Physiotherapy. Prior to her studies Roslyn worked many years as a massage therapist, experience she now brings to the Bairnsdale practice.
She is a long-time resident of East Gippsland and has a strong commitment to her local community. Her special interests in physiotherapy currently lie in treating chronic pain, and has experience with treating children, aged care and WorkSafe patients; she also relishes the opportunity to tackle the diversity and complexity of cases that a rural/regional area can offer.
