Hi thank you for checking out theHealthyGP!

My name is Dr. Jonathan Ramachenderan and I am a rural generalist in beautiful Albany, Western Australia. I got married to my beautiful wife Kylie in 2004 when I was 24 and we have been blessed with 3 boys. Our lives are ALWAYS interesting, sometimes a little messy but nonetheless full of adventure.

This blog is my dedicated online home and has evolved with me through the journey of medicine and life.


As a young doctor I was working long hours, trying to be present for my sons and build a fulfilling marriage when I started to burn out.

Writing began as an extension of my morning quiet time and documented the lessons I’d learnt about being restoring balance as a doctor, husband and father.

But more than that is is a repository of my current thoughts on medicine + marriage + parenting.

@thehealthyGP – waiting to put in a central line

My hope and strength has always been in my God who promises in Isaiah 40:31 that “those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint”

Living intentionally is “reverse engineering” your life or making sure that you are on the right track to experience and live the life you intended.


I was also fortunate enough to meet several mentors who kindly guided me towards true significance and pushed me outside of my comfort zone!
