About James Neil Medical Centre

The James Neil Medical Centre was formally the Toowoomba 7 Day Medical Centre.  It has been open since September 1994.  The practice initially started with a small number of doctors working standard business hours, and has evolved to a 10 doctor practice.  The James Neil Medical believes that everyone is to be treated with respect, dignity, and compassion from all teams within the clinic, which encompasses Medical, Nursing and Administration.  Patients of the clinic are made to feel welcome and part of the family.  We also are multicultural with over 10 languages spoken in house. The James Neil Medical is a mixed billing practice.
