Since 1981, Luzdoc has progressed into a tailor-made family medical centre, providing a comprehensive 24-hour healthcare service to residents and tourists in the Algarve, where patients are partners in their healthcare, wellbeing and health prevention.
Luzdoc recognises the emergence of more discerning clients, who are better informed about their health issues and who want to take a more active role in achieving optimum health, balancing the advantages of new technologies in a friendly environment.
After working a number of years in Lisbon’s largest University Hospital, Dr. Maria Alice moved permanently to the Algarve and started the surgery.
Since 2001, Dr Joanna Karamon became a fundamental part of the clinic’s progression, sharing the same vision of services.
In 2014, Dr Nadia Brandford joined the team full-time and Dr Mário Ferreira started working part-time with us.
From December 2019, Dr Inês Rodrigues became part of our medical staff and is a relevant asset not only for her medical experience but also for her fluency in the Swedish language as she worked in Sweden for some years.
In 2014, Luzdoc opened Medilagos, which is now expanding premises and services, responding to our clients’ needs.
At Medilagos, besides basic outpatient health support, we have developed occupational health and aesthetic medicine. New services such as sports medicine and related areas will be developed in the extended premises.
The essence of the relationship between a family and the family doctor is trust.
The family practitioner is devoted to the patient, an unpredictable, unexpected and unique human being.
Each person becomes ill in their own way and the relationship with the family doctor has to be realistic, understanding.
At Luzdoc, we talk about personalised primary healthcare with an integrated approach to the whole individual, as it’s not just about tests and pills.
Be aware, foresee the danger and control it, as much as you can. This is prevention!
We are the managers of our own present and future, a job we cannot fail as this one is, certainly, the job of our life.
Luzdoc offers certified departments in the areas of occupational medicine, hygiene and safety, aesthetic medicine and sports medicine, enabling you to keep yourself and your business effectively healthy.
Health is the most precious thing and our team has just one purpose: to help you to be healthy!
Best health wishes,
