Sharifah Sorayya Mahmood Martin graduated in Malaysia in 1985. She was a trainee in Plastic Surgery before opting out in favour of General Practice. Sorayya joined the practice in 2001 soon after she moved to Adelaide, leaving behind her own family-run general practice and a career in medical politics including past Hon Gen Secretary of the Academy of Family Physicians of Malaysia.
Her areas of interest include Minor Surgery, all areas of Women’s Health, Sexual Health & Fertility, Menopause, Osteoporosis, Asthma, Pain Management – having undergone extended training in these areas – Geriatrics, Counselling and Mental Health. Sorayya continues to enjoy all other aspects of General Family Practice.
Sorayya is a wife, mother of 2 and a practising Visual Artist with Central Studios.
True to her background growing up in and experiencing life in multiple cultures she recently co-founded the Mahmood Martin Foundation (www.mahmoodmartinfoundation.org.au) with Dr Geoff Martin. This now takes up much of her free time.
Dr Martin consults Mondays and Wednesdays all day, Tuesday Thursday and Friday mornings (Tuesday afternoons are spent doing rounds at various Aged Care Facilities and making home visits.). When on call (rotating roster) she also consults on Friday afternoon and Saturday mornings. When she is not consulting at the surgery she is working at Central Studios, doing her Foundation work or cooking!
