Dr Tony Bongiorno was born in Melbourne and for the most part lived in Flemington studying at St Brendan’s then Xavier College. He graduated from Melbourne University in 1982.
Dr Bongiorno’s clinical training was at The Royal Melbourne Hospital and Ballarat Base Hospital in medicine and obstetrics. He had interests initially in sports medicine and did further training in this field. As a result he has had honorary positions with the Ballarat Miners, North Ballarat Football Club, Ballarat Turf Club, East Ballarat Football Club and the Ballarat Trotting Club. His interests now however are firmly in family-oriented general practice and he particularly enjoys paediatric practice. He is humbled by the fact he can be a small part of people’s lives with his role in general practice.
