Dr. Elena Mamaeva
Dr Elena Mamaeva graduated from the University of Western Australia with Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery in 2011.
Prior to becoming a GP, Dr Mamaeva received extensive clinical experience working for 6 years at the Joondalup Health Campus and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, rotating through different medical specialties, including general medicine, geriatrics, respiratory medicine, neurology, palliative care and cardiology. She has worked a large proportion of the time in the emergency department and paediatrics as well as completing rotations at the High Dependency Unit, Coronary Care Unit, general surgery and obstetrics.
In pursuit of postgraduate education, Dr Mamaeva travelled to Liverpool in the UK to study infectious diseases at the prestigious Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene and received her diploma in 2014.
Through her extensive hospital training, Dr Mamaeva realised that what she really enjoyed is continuity of care for her patients, which was rarely possible in the hospital system. This led her to specialise in the field of General Practice, where she has found her true passion. Upon completion of the GP training programme, Dr Mamaeva became a fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practice in 2021.
Dr Mamaeva enjoys all aspects of General Practice and strives to provide the highest level evidence-based care to her patients. She believes that each patient’s experience of ill health is unique and always requires an individualised approach. She is an attentive listener and is passionate about giving her patients of all ages adequate time and a safe space to discuss their specific concerns, worries and ask questions. She strongly believes that thorough medical history is the most important part of arriving at the correct diagnosis and values collaborative approach to complex problems often encountered in general practice – be it hospital specialist advice, allied health input or opinion of valued GP colleagues.
Dr Mamaeva’s special interests include: preventative health (including heart disease, cancer screening and obesity management), comprehensive women’s health (including antenatal and postnatal support, breastfeeding, sexual health and contraception, menopause management) as well as men’s, child and adolescent health, including psychological wellbeing.
Dr Mamaeva holds an FPAA National Certificate in Reproductive and Sexual Health for Doctors 2019 (including Implanon training) and Postgraduate Certificate in Child Health from the University of Sydney 2019.
She currently works part-time, spending the rest of the time caring for her young child.
