Doctors

Dr Lorenzo Ponte

MBBS, FRACGP

Dr Lorenzo Ponte started working at Health on Kensington in 2021, and now works full time with us. Lorenzo and his family live in the area.

Lorenzo brings a wealth of experience and knowledge as a General Practitioner. He graduated from The University of Adelaide in 1996, and did his GP training in Minlaton, on the Yorke Peninsula. He completed his Fellowship in 2001, and remained in Minlaton as a rural GP until 2011. He relocated to Adelaide to become the Clinical Director at Uni-Health Playford.

Lorenzo specialises in skin cancer screening, minor procedures, men’s health, antenatal shared care, and does Q Fever vaccinations. He has a far broader scope of practice than this, thanks to spending a decade as a country GP dealing with whatever came his way!

Lorenzo is also registered with Doctors Health SA, an organisation where their primary care GPs are “doctors for [other] doctors” and medical students across metro and rural South Australia.
