Dr Rus Hamilton was raised in the outskirts of Melbourne.  He graduated from Melbourne University and has since obtained postgraduate degrees in Education and Psychology.  Dr Rus has had more than 35 years working in a variety of medical roles, including more than 15 years of general practice.  He has broad experience in family practice and a special interest in men’s health.  He also really enjoys treating children.  He recognises his limitations, particularly in surgery and women’s health and works collaboratively with the other Doctors so that overall Botanical Gardens Health can provide the highest standard of practice to the community.

Outside of work he enjoys spending time with his wife, five grown up daughters and grandson.  He is also a very keen endurance cyclist who has competed in many overseas events and he is always happy to talk about cycling, even if it is not directly health related.

Dr Rus consults on Monday and Friday.
