Dr Ronald Schweitzer

Dr. Ronald Schweitzer is a general practitioner and lecturer/tutor at the Monash University for the Year 2 and Year 4 undergraduate medical students in the Department of General Practice.

Ron has been working as a GP in Melbourne since 1984. He has been having Monash Medical students at his practice since around 1990, and from around 2002 became a tutor in the department for first and second year medical students. He joined the department as a lecturer in 2013 where his duties extended to being a fourth year tutor.

Dr Schweitzer practices all aspects of general practice, but his major area of interest is in the low carbohydrate, healthy fat (LCHF) eating approach. He embraced LCHF, both personally and professionally, in 2018 after extensive research. He now uses the LCHF approach in the management of a number of conditions including but not limited to diabetes and pre-diabetes, weight loss, fatty liver, high blood pressure (hypertension) and abnormal lipids. Ron is married with two children and four grandchildren and whatever spare time he has he fills with playing tennis.
