Dr Tim Adams graduated from Melbourne University in 1977 and has enjoyed an extensive career in General Practice, most notably being a solo doctor in the remote rural areas of Victoria, NSW, South Australia and WA.
In 1997, Dr Adams moved to Queensland and over the past 18 years has worked his way up along the coast from Brisbane, Hervey Bay and Bundaberg.
He has lived in Cairns since 2007 and he still loves the tropical laid back lifestyle that makes Cairns his favourite place to live and work.
Dr Adams enjoys General Practice in all its aspects and specialties.
In his spare time, when he is not exploring the Daintree, he immerses himself in his two favourite hobbies; computer programming and studying languages.
Nishari has been working as a doctor for almost 10 years. She provides very high quality care and takes pride in her reputation as a caring doctor who is very thorough.
Nishari says the main reason she became a doctor was to help people. So when Nishari is not at the surgery helping people, she is busy organising countless acts of compassion. To name a few, Nishari and her husband feed homeless or disabled people in Cairns every year. This year they walked all over Phnom Penh and Seam Reap in Cambodia buying goods of necessity for children living in an orphanage in Cambodia. After the 2004 tsunami, Nishari travelled around Australia and collected, packed and organised the shipping of items of necessity for victims of the tsunami. She has provided groceries for 50 families stricken by severe poverty in regional Sri Lanka. And she has helped a disabled man in Sri Lanka to develop a small business to earn a living and feed his family. In her spare time, Nishari enjoys spending time with her husband, dog and friends, travelling, camping and kayaking.
