East Boundary Road Physiotherapy/ EBR physio was established, by Pam Marshall in East Bentleigh, in 1963. In 2015 we have been accredited by QIP (Quality Innovation Performance) part of AGPAL. QIP accreditation shows we are committed to providing quality care based on professional standards. In 2013 we celebrated 50 years practising Physiotherapy in East Bentleigh. The practice has been in several locations over the years always in East Bentleigh and has been in its current building since 1985. The philosophy of the practice has always been to give prompt, reliable, professional, and ethical service, which is outlined in the practice’s Statement of Purpose.It is a group practice with one principal, Michael Wynne and currently the associates detailed below. Unfortunately the founding principal Pam Marshall died in early 2004 after a long illness.
We are located on a major arterial road (133 East Boundary Road) in East Bentleigh and utilise an entire house with proper parking facilities accessible from Elizabeth Street. It is well equipped with a separate rehabilitation gym which has been recently been extended and upgraded. The practice is open 5½ days a week with extended evening hours plus hydrotherapy sessions at the Southern Region Hydrotherapy Pool (within the Bentleigh Bayside Community Health Centre), which is within walking distance.
This site has been prepared to give you information on our practice to help you gain maximum benefit from our facilities and services.
