M.B., Ch.B., Dip. Paeds
I am an Otago Medical School graduate from 1995 following an earlier career as an echocardiographer and cardiopulmonary technician. My post graduate experience was at Tauranga Hospital for 3 years with a year specialising in Paediatrics, obtaining a post graduate Diploma in Paediatrics.
After this I worked in the Waikato and North Shore as a registrar in Adult General Medicine and Diabetes. I’ve been a GP since 1999 and this was spurred on by my desire to help people make positive changes in their health and their lives. I have been working as a GP in West Auckland since this time and started job sharing with Dr Roy Knill at CityMed in October 2013.
I also have experience in Appearance Medicine with the administration of Botulinium toxin and Dermal Fillers since 2002. I am very keen on taking a preventative approach to health and have worked as a fitness instructor and international trainer for Les Mills for more than 2 decades.
Paediatrics, Heart and Lung disease, Diabetes, Men’s Health, Wellness and preventative care, Appearance Medicine – Botox and Dermal Fillers, Skin checks and surgery for skin cancers / lumps and bumps and NZ immigration medicals. I am also qualified to prescribe- PrEP which is Pre-exposure prophylaxis to reduce the risk of HIV infection.
My other interests include learning Spanish, diving, sailing, skiing, travel, kayaking and camping.
