The Moonee Valley Specialist Centre philosophy

At MVSC, we are dedicated to providing the highest standards of specialist gastroenterology and hepatology services in Melbourne with personalised, supportive care.

We offer:
A patient-centred approach

At MVSC, your health is our top priority. Our nurse screens every new patient to ensure you get seen in a timely manner. If we believe you need urgent hospital admission or assessment, we will advise you to immediately attend the emergency department to make sure you get the help you need.

Personalised service

We take the time to understand your health needs, concerns and history, and to explain each aspect of your care. We’ll work with you to ensure you get the right diagnosis and understand your treatment options.

Choice and control over your care

Because every patient is unique, we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to your assessment or management. If more than one treatment option may work for you, we’ll let you know and explain the risks and benefits of each. You maintain control and have the choice over how to proceed.

Caring and compassionate service

We understand that being unwell can leave you feeling overwhelmed. That’s why our staff are trained to support you throughout your journey with us. From your first contact with our reception staff to your discharge, you’ll be treated with warmth, dignity, and respect.

Clear communication

We use plain language and explanations to help you understand the assessment process, your diagnosis, and your treatment options.

Comprehensive approach

We take a thorough approach to your assessment and management, without unnecessary duplication of tests.


We provide the highest standards of patient care based on the best current evidence and practices.

Family focus

As a family owned and operated business, we believe in building supportive, long-term relationships and love welcoming new people into our patient family. 


We take the time to listen to your questions. To the best of our ability, we will give you straight, open and honest answers about your condition, treatment options, costs and timeframes.
