Dr Ray Seidler was a hero to GPs, a larger-than-life figure caring for the community in Sydney’s Kings Cross when it was an underbelly — a red-light world of drugs, organised crime and sex work.

He was also a long-time AusDoc columnist who appeared as the star turn on the medical conference circuit to talk about the unspoken realities of life as a GP.
