Drs Duffey Martin Darby Inc. came into existence in July 1993 when Dr Sean Duffey bought a fledgling practice from Dr John Flett which had opened 6 months previously. Dr Flett left private practice to go and specialize in paediatrics and the original practice was located in the old Saveway Building which is now the new Link Hills Shopping Centre.
In late 1994, a house was purchased at 2 Niagara Drive and Dr Duffey moved the practice there on 1st December 1994. During the course of 1995, additions were made to the house and further rooms built on. Dr Shaun Martin, a medical school colleague and friend of Dr Duffey, joined him in practice and Drs Duffey and Martin opened.
Further exapansions were made to the building in 1996 to accomodate Dr Richard Darby joining Drs Duffey and Martin in general practice and on the 1st October 1996, Dr Richard Darby merged the practice he had taken over from Dr Lennox Becker seven months previously with Drs Duffey and Martin’s practice, and Drs Duffey, Martin and Darby came into being.
During the course of 2006, further expansions were completed to the centre, adding 2 further consulting rooms for Drs Duffey Martin and Darby.
Over the years we have been very fortunate to have some wonderful doctors working at the rooms. Currently there are eight Family Practitioners consulting at the practice including Drs Sean Duffey, Shaun Martin, Richard Darby, Karla Lott, Yvonne Reece, Dave Cumming, Juanine Grundlingh and Heidi Duvel.
