There has been a Family Practice doctors surgery at 15 Pery Square since 1946 when Dr Edward Cullen, Dr Philip Cullen’s late father, started his practice in what was then his family home. In 1979, Dr Philip Cullen joined his father and they worked together for 15 years.
In 1999, Dr Damien Hanly and Dr Cullen amalgamated their 2 practices and 15 Pery Square was redeveloped to function exclusively as a Family Practice.
In November 2009, having taken into consideration logistical and practical issues with the Pery Square premises, Drs Cullen and Hanly opened a second centre of practice in Castletroy, and Dr Sarah Clifford joined the practice.
