About Us

Dr Josef S Goldbaum M.B.B.S., M.D., FAMAC, FACNEM, FFM ACCS

Dr Josef Goldbaum is a General Practitioner, medical doctor, medical acupuncturist, expert in nutritional and environmental medicine and a cosmetic physician and surgeon, and the founder of 1300 health.

Dr Goldbaum conceived and implemented the concept of 1300 health five years ago, to service the Australian public. He has been working towards its implementation ever since.

With over 40 years of extensive medical experience and immersion in the world of medicine and patient care, the quality of this service is second to none.

Dr. Goldbaum graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1971. Following his internship at the Austin Hospital, he undertook the Family Medicine program at the Toronto Western Hospital in Canada, where he passed the Canadian licensing examination (LMCC). He also passed the American ECFMG examination.

On return to Melbourne in 1975 he commenced private general practice and began the study of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. He also commenced study in nutritional and environmental medicine, being one of the founders of the complementary and integrative medicine movement in Australia.

After relocating to Australia's Gold Coast in 1982, he created the Gold Coast's first 24 hour medical clinic, and opened five other medical centres in South East Queensland.

These clinics cemented his knowledge and practice of all forms of general medical and family practice, nutritional and environmental medicine and acupuncture.

In 1994 he commenced training and practice in cosmetic medicine and surgery, establishing clinics in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and the Gold Coast.

His first love however, has always been the practice of high quality medicine and the well being of his patients. To this end, he created 1300 health and second opinion, so that you can benefit from his extensive expertise and that of his colleagues.
