Get to know us...
Oakpark Medical Centre was setup over 30 years ago by Dr Joe Arthurs and his wife Marie R.G.N (registered general nurse).
In 2013 their daughter Dr Kate Arthurs also joined the team of GPs at Oakpark Medical Centre.
We have been providing General Practice services to the people of Tralee for over a quarter of a century.
What started out as a single Doctor practice has grown into what is today a modern and dynamic practice.

Today we have 5 doctors, 2 practice nurses, a phlebotomist, dietitian, psychotherapist, and 7 secretaries making up the team.

“My work is informed by my in-depth training and my wide and varied life experience. I work with adults who are in need of support, people suffering from anxiety, depression, lethargy/ lostness, experiencing relationship problems, those who may feel at a cross roads and those who want more from life.
I have a special interest in terminal illness and end of life care. I work with terminally ill people undergoing treatment, palliative patients and their families and I work with the dying. I work closely with Palliative Consultants and GPs.
I have a wide skill base which I very much utilise in all of my work both with individuals and groups. As well as talk therapy, I use creative expression/artwork, bodywork/ consciousness, meditation, visualisation in my work to empower and encourage positive and powerful change.
I work as a psychotherapist in private practice in Tarbert, in a Palliative Day care centre and in Oakpark Medical Centre in Tralee. I also facilitate training in communicating with palliative patients.
