in Aqua Marine Medical Centre and Skin Clinic
As finding the right doctor is a very personal choice, we thought we’d let our doctors share with you their personal stories of why they became a doctor and do what they do… and why Aqua Marine Medical Centre & Skin Clinic came to be.
Our General Practitioners, Family Medical Centre and Skin Clinic “Aqua Marine Medical Centre & Skin Clinic” was created, when Dr Marina was working in Rural Victoria away from her husband for nearly 18 months.
After relocation to Maryborough in QLD and during three years of GP work there, which included more exams and study, Dr. Marina received her Fellowship. This lead to her husband, Gotthard, selling his own business
to make time to engage with the planning and running of the Aqua Marine Medical Centre & Skin Clinic.
Everything started out of the back of our garage, with lots of files, papers and ideas, and slowly became our project in Redland Bay, Queensland, where the clinic is now open with Dr Marina and Dr Rad taking care
of our loyal patient base.
Meet The Team
DR MARINA ROTERT
MD, FRACGP, Dip. Dermoscopy, Dip. Skin Cancer Surgery
SCI - Associate Fellow Skin Cancer Institute
Advanced Cert. Cosmetic Medicine
Advanced Cert Aptos Threads Lift
I was born in the South part of Russia, situated near the Volga River close to former Stalingrad (current Volgograd). The city is called Balakovo.
My parents were both medical doctors, very hardworking and constantly busy. My little sister and myself hardly saw our parents and were missing them a lot while they were saving other people’s lives.
My Mum would be often called at night after being at work for 10-12 hours a day. She would forget her own needs and would help everybody in need of medical assistance. My mother was very much loved in our town where most people knew her and were her patients.
She was terribly missed after she was tragically killed in a car accident when I was 12 years of age. I had to grow up very quickly after this tragedy and help also with the upbringing of my younger sister.
DR SHAYAN RAD
Master Degree Skin Cancer
(UQ Skin Cancer)
Sclerotherapy /Varicose Veins treatments
Dr Rad was born and raised in Iran, and graduated from the famous Qazvin University of Medical Science in 2008 where he also met his wife. In 2013 Dr Rad and his wife moved to Australia where he started to work in Mackay, Queensland as a General Practitioner with a special interest in Skin Cancer and Varicose Vein Sclerotherapy.
In 2018 Dr Rad achieved the highest qualification as General Practitioner and became a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners after the exams were passed during the first attempt. Dr Rad continued with his post graduate training and was granted a Master of Medicine degree in SKIN CANCER from the University of Queensland in 2019.
During his skin cancer master training he achieved Dean’s commendation of academic excellence for his performance. Dr Rad has one of the lowest “number needed to be treated” for skin cancer among his peers which reflects his accuracy in the diagnosis of skin cancers, and is quite experienced in surgical management of complex head and neck skin cancers. The Varicose Vein SCLEROTHERAPY treatment is a passion since 2014, and currently Dr Rad continues training with the Australian College of Phlebology in a training program.
Beside his medical carrier, he enjoys fishing and photography and spending time with family.
Dr. Gill grew up in the holy city of Amritsar, (Punjab, India), known for The Golden Temple which is spiritually the most significant shrine in Sikhism. He is married, with two children 4 and 8 years. He was inspired and mentored by his doctor family members to become a doctor, who are working in the different parts of the world now. By becoming a medical professional, he feels empowered to help others, speak for those who may not otherwise have a voice, and even save lives. After completing his Physician Doctor of Medicine degree in 2007, he migrated to Australia with his wife. Predominantly, he lived and worked in the Northern Territory, Queensland, and became a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 2021. He enjoys long walks, cycling, and meditation.

Captain/Master Class 1/Managing Director
Gotthard was born in Germany in between Hamburg and Bremen, a coastal town called Oldenburg. His childhood dream was becoming a Captain on big ships, and he achieved his dream at the age of 22 after three years of university when he was awarded a Master Class 1 License without limitation. Now he had to climb the ladder from 3rd officer to second officer, Chief Officer until he was given the command of a bulk carrier who sailed world wide. After achieving his dream he soon realized, that he was looking for other challenges and became operation manager of a pipeline company in West Africa, to be precise, Nigeria. There, life was completely different and challenging in different ways. Gotthard's first contract expired after little over 5 years, and he changed companies to work for one of the biggest freight forwarding companies and he was in charge of all offshore operation such as oil rigs, supply vessels and other marine operation. Finally after nearly 13 years he came back to Australia. Gotthard has two grown up daughters from his first marriage and re-married his second wife Marina in 2007, and they have three beautiful daughters now. During the first three years back in Australia Gotthard started selling Real Estate and opened his own real estate business after that. This business was sold after little over 10 years in 2016 to another real estate company to make room to plan a new venture. The double garage was converted into an office and planning started to open a Medical Centre which became Aqua Marine Medical Centre & Skin Clinic in Redland Bay, which opened it's doors on the 06.11.2017.
