Dr Janeane McKeon
Dr Janeane McKeon was born and educated in Brisbane and graduated from the university of Queensland in 1978 with second class honors. During her clinical undergraduate attachments, she worked in Longreach and Wellington NZ. Dr McKeon worked for 2 years after graduation at the Ipswich General Hospital, a considerable period of this attachment being in the area of obstetrics and gynaecology, so as to obtain the required clinical experience to receive a Diploma in Obstetrics and gynaecology. She spent her third year of hospital residency at the Mater Hospital, which included a rural rotation to Bundaberg for 3 months. Dr McKeon subsequently worked in a Southside Brisbane general practice for 5 years and obtained her fellowship in general practice. After a 2-year sojourn in Newcastle, NSW, relating to her husband’s medical specialist training, she returned to Queensland in 1988 and commenced practice at the (then) Roma St Medical and Dental Practice in the Brisbane Transit Centre. This continued until the retirement of the senior partners, Doctors Gerry and Pat Brady, in 2007. Dr McKeon was very happy when the practice was taken over by Dr Mardi Vory and its subsequent transformation into Barracks Medical, now Milton Village Medical, allowed Dr McKeon to provide continuity of care to her longstanding group of patients.
Dr McKeon is interested in all areas of general practice, particularly preventative medicine, women’s health issues, and mental health. She has undertaken teaching undergraduate medical students from UQ in their general practice terms, and enjoyed and learnt from their interactions.
Dr McKeon has 3 adult children and is currently deriving much pleasure from having a new grandson.
Dr McKeon's interests in her personal life (apart from, of course, her family!) include skiing, music, reading, walking her dogs, and travel. Dr McKeon has been learning Italian for some time and continues to do so in the hope of achieving fluency at some future point. Dr McKeon has sung in choirs in the past and enjoys playing the piano. She hopes to be able to continue working several days per week with the supportive team at Milton Village Medical for the foreseeable future.
