Mr Thomas was born in India in 1964. He graduated medicine in India in 1988, before registering as a medical practitioner in Australia in the year 2000. Through 2000-2007 he practised medicine in Australia’s outback in New South Wales, South Australia, and the Northern Territory. In 2007 he moved to the Windsor Family Practice in New South Wales and purchased it soon after. He went on to eventually run four practices throughout the Sydney metropolitan area, before moving on to start his own entrepreneurship through innovative MEKSI (Medical Knowledge Simulator) application. In addition to having been a general practitioner in Sydney, Jawahar Thomas is currently an entrepreneur and an inventor. He has experience from having managed four medical centres and continues to innovate in the medical education sector with his patented Medical Knowledge Simulator, otherwise known as MEKSI.
Mr Thomas has assisted with relief efforts after the Latur earthquake in India and has worked in remote areas of Northern Australia where conditions and lack of medical resources meant conditions more often than not resembled a third world country. Working in these conditions and seeing the massive impact that a lack of up-to-date resources and proper medical support plays in the overall health of a community, consolidated Mr Thomas’s ideas about education being the greatest way of improving the overall health of the nation and its future generations. This occurred at a time when advances in the technological and communication industries opened new possibilities for reaching out to greater numbers of people. Mr Thomas has seen how the correct application of technology can lead to great gains in preventative health care practice.
The ability to cut through many of the traditional barriers to training and knowledge-sharing has been solved via the internet and specially designed software platforms. Previous barriers such as geography (distance from centres of further training and enhanced skill development); information obsolescence (published data becoming redundant as knowledge advanced), and cost (access to learning resources and on-going training and skill updating in the knowledge and technology industries is expensive) can now be overcome with relative ease.
Mr. Jawahar Thomas’ contribution to medical training
Mr Thomas’s drive for improvement in the health care education sector has led him to develop an innovative software application – MEKSI (Medical Knowledge System) – for professional education. His aim in developing the software was to create an easily accessible system for improving the training and general knowledge of doctors and medical students in a perfectly safe environment.
Mr Thomas’s software application simulates real-life patient situations where they present with an illness and the student doctor is given the opportunity to practice their classroom learning by providing assessing the simulated patient, presenting a diagnosis, and prescribing the appropriate treatment.
He is continuing his work in leveraging and developing this exciting phase of technology and communications to support further medical training and better-quality patient care.

We provide fully comprehensive travel health advice to help you in preparation for any overseas trips you may have planned. It is always important that you consult with your GP at least a minimum of 6 weeks prior to your departure. We are always informed with up-to-date knowledge of the latest travel-related disease information, and as a result we can give the best possible advice on the best vaccination plan for you and your loved ones relative to the countries and regions you’ll be visiting on your trip.
Mr Thomas has travelled extensively and has seen firsthand the absolute suffering and devastation caused by diseases that are preventable through modern medicine. Travel vaccinations are a vital part of the preparation of your travels. Understanding that local, region-specific conditions like malaria and variables such as water quality, and sanitation standards for example, are very real and can be devastating for those ill-prepared to face them. Thankfully, we are only too happy to help you get properly medically arranged that will help you maintain your day-to-day and long-term health whilst overseas.
Regular health check-ups for men and women are important. The sooner an issue is identified, the better prepared an individual can be with finding a solution. Everyone is an individual, and in no sense is this truer than in the human body. While we all possess the same bodily systems (respiratory, circulatory, digestive, nervous, etc) some matters of our physiology are different. These differences can come from previous medical concerns, gender, age, ongoing medication, chronic diseases, mental illness, hormonal imbalances, chemical imbalances, congenital conditions, and lifestyle habits.
It is important that you see a general practitioner regularly so that they can develop a rapport with you, allowing them to gain an in-depth understanding of your body, what is or isn’t normal for your particular case, and tailor their treatment as required – or direct you to a specialist should their experience deem their ability to treat a particular issue as inadequate. Any out-of-the-ordinary physiological conditions should be closely monitored and checked with your general practitioner as soon as possible.
Chronic Health and Disease Management
We can educate and offer advice on preventative options for diabetes, asthma, mental health and other ailments. Jawahar Thomas has an interest in chronic disease management.
A “Chronic” illness or disease is any affliction whether physical or psychological, that is ongoing and requires regular treatment and check-ups. These ailments are often not life-threatening and can be managed with proper treatment and medication. However, some do have a significant impact on quality of life and is severe cases can have an impact on overall life expectancy. Some chronic illnesses or diseases can be cured with surgery, while others unfortunately ill provide a life long struggle. Research is being done every day into these diseases, and developments are constantly being worked towards. Jawahar Thomas keeps abreast of all the latest information, and his clinics always have the benefit of the most up to date, scientific methods for treating a range of chronic illness.
Are you up-to-date with your immunisations? We offer total comprehensive travel health advice in order to ensure that you are prepared for overseas trips of any length. Ideally, you should consult a doctor at least 6-8 weeks prior to leaving the country.
Many countries have diseases that we don’t have in Australia. Our clinics have access to the relevant medical information relating to each country. If you’re planning an overseas trip, it is paramount that you see your general practitioner and have them advise you on what diseases are common where you’ll be going and receive the appropriate vaccines for those countries and areas.
There is also a plethora of information regarding regulation and sanitation laws in various countries. This leads to different health standards concerning food and drink. Your doctor will be able to tell you what to avoid while you’re overseas, as well as whether you should or shouldn’t eat certain kinds of foods, visit certain states or attractions, and more.
Our team can discuss general health as well as advise the best healthcare professional that can provide you with treatment plans to manage asthma, diabetes, obesity and other medical issues that affect youth.
Childhood should be a wonderous time in any person’s life. However, a chronic medical illness or severe accident sustained during childhood can seriously impinge on quality of life through childhood and through adulthood. We are sensitive to the needs of children at Jawahar Thomas’ clinic, and always to our utmost to ensure that a child’s visit is comfortable, feels safe, and gets them the best treatment possible. Children can sometimes feel intimidated by doctors’ offices. They’re big rooms full of adults that know more than they do, there is often a feeling of pressure to describe sensations and feelings that may be difficult for a child to accurately define depending on their age and vocabulary range. Not to mention the potential invasiveness and discomfort of some medical examination procedures. We do everything we can to make sure that your child feels at ease with us, and that you are there for every single step of our medical examination, that way the child feels like there is a sense of support and familiarity. Also, if we need anything your child says to be cleared up or more accurately stated, we have full confidence that you as their parent or legal guardian will be able to provide this clarification. After all, who knows a child better than their parent?
