Quals: MBBS (Qld), FRACGP
How long have you been practising medicine?
I graduated from the University of Queensland, Medical School in 1985. I completed my intern year at Royal Brisbane Hospital, working a further year at the Royal Brisbane before finishing a year at The Prince Charles Hospital. After these placements, I went into General Practice, initially on Brisbane’s Southside. For most of my career, however, I have worked in the northern suburbs. I gained my GP fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practice in 1993.
How long have you been practising medicine in the Albany Creek area?
I have been working in the Albany Creek area for the last 17 years, firstly at McDowall and then Chermside. Most recently I have been at Ferny Grove.
What inspired you to become a Doctor?
Medicine is an excellent combination of science and caring. In General Practice, this is especially so where we have access to modern treatments and technology but still interact with people on a personal and day-to-day level.
What’s your passion personally?
I’m married with one child, and my family is my passion. I also try to heed my own advice on eating well and exercising regularly.
What’s your passion professionally?
I enjoy General practice because of its diversity and that I am helping people and their families at different stages of their lives.
I am interested in all areas of general or family practice, including chronic disease management, men’s health, and preventative medicine. I am thrilled to be seeing existing and new patients.
