I grew up in City Beach, graduated from the University of Western Australia
I worked at Glen Street Practice from 1999 up until 2023, where I divided my time between seeing patients and attending to the administrative aspects of the business. I now work at Brecken Health Albany providing care to the community in the region.
I enjoy the special nature of general practice, the connection with the community and the ongoing relationship with the patients unique to this specialty. The challenge is the almost unlimited scope of what patients can present with but that is also why it is always interesting. I hosted medical students at Glen Street – some of whom will become the next generation of family doctors.
I see all types of general practice patients but I am interested in skin diseases and spend some time each week doing biopsies, cryotherapy and skin surgery for skin cancers and the like.
Outside the surgery I can be found on the tennis court or on my bike for some fresh air and fitness.
Many of my patients know I disappear to France for a month in the middle of each year. My partner and I have a small property in the heart of L’Isle sur la Sorgue, a lovely town of waterways, waterwheels, markets and antiques in Provence. This has been an interesting venture and I am now a dab hand at French plumbing.
