Dr Eric Hadinata

Specialist General Practitioner
Co-Chair of the RACGP Victoria Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) committee
RACGP Victoria Council Member

Hello, and welcome!

After serving in private general practice in the Geelong Region for over six years, I embarked on the next phase of my career by training with the Australasian Chapter of Addiction Medicine (AChAM) in 2023 to obtain a specialist qualification in Addiction Medicine. I expect to complete this in August 2025.

To all my previous private patients in Geelong, please accept my deepest gratitude for the privilege of being part of your healthcare journey. Most of you would have received a personalised handover plan from me. But if I missed you, please accept my deepest apologies. I've created a list of providers in the area that I highly recommend, which can be found here.

I was known for my work in Addiction Medicine, having an appointment at Barwon Health Drug and Alcohol Services, which still continues. I am currently a Co-Chair of the RACGP Victoria AOD Committee and maintain an active role in advocacy.

I had previous clinical and research experience in treating patients with eating disorders. Women's Health was also an area of interest in which I've had previous clinical and research experience.

My deepest gratitude to all my patients for your kindness and trust over these years. It was a privilege to be part of your health journey. If I did not have a chance to personalise your clinical handover, please check this page to see if any of these trusted colleagues could be the GP for you.

I am a specialist General Practitioner with a specific interest in Addiction Medicine. I am undergoing advanced training in Addiction Medicine with the Australasian Chapter of Addiction Medicine.

I am passionate about research. My current research focus is Addiction Medicine, but I also previously published papers on eating disorders, women's health, and cardiac surgery.

Public health advocacy is important to me. I have served in various capacities with various bodies, such as the RACGP presidential task force and the Barwon Health GP advisory committee. I continue this work as a co-chair of the RACGP Victoria AOD Committee and as a council member with RACGP Victoria.
