Dr James Connell grew up on a farm in rural NSW and graduated from Medicine at University of NSW. He has always been interested in pursuing general practice as he likes the varied nature of the work, freedom to pursue multiple interests and the connection it brings with patients and their families. He is interested in all aspects of general practice but has special interests including mental health, skin medicine, sports medicine, chronic disease management, mens health, pain management and palliative care. James has recently moved to the Sunshine Coast with his wife as they believe this is a great place to raise a family. James looks forward to becoming a long term part of the Sunshine Coast Community.
