Dr Arun Gupta, a board-credentialled gastroenterologist (gut specialist) who trained in Melbourne, Sydney and the United Kingdom.
Beautiful Glen Iris with its rolling hills, tree-lined streets and vast homes is a picture-perfect snapshot of life in the suburbs. A favourite with Melbourne’s established set, it’s easy to forget that this charming neighbourhood is a mere 10 kilometres from the city. Glen Iris is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) south-east of Melbourne’s Central Business District, located within the Cities of Boroondara and Stonnington local government areas. Glen Iris recorded a population of 25,268 at the 2016 census.
The name Glen Iris first appears on the Boroondarra side of Gardiners Creek in 1852 when the ‘Glen Iris Estate’ was advertised for sale.
The property, owned by Captain Thomas Henderson, included extensive, cultivated land along with a substantial villa. From 1855 the Glen Iris homestead was owned by Robert Kent, who also acquired 16 acres of land on the west side of Gardiners Creek. Glen Iris Railway Station dates from 1890 and a small area adjacent to the station was first named in 1894.
Dr Gupta performs endoscopic procedures at Glen Iris Private, a high quality day procedure unit associated with the well-regarded Cura Day Hospitals group. This is conveniently located at 314 Warrigal Road, Glen Iris. The consulting rooms at Specialists @Burwood are well located near the intersection of Warrigal and Highbury Roads, at 367 Warrigal Road, Burwood.

Dr Gupta has a strong interest in performing high-quality gastroscopy and colonoscopy and diagnosis and management of all aspects of gastroenterology.

Dr Gupta has an excellent track record, working as a senior specialist at the Canberra Hospital for the last eight years, however he is pleased to return to his hometown of Melbourne.
