I care about my patients and try to provide a comprehensive health care service for them, whether this is with me alone, or with referral to other medical colleagues or allied health services for their expertise and assistance.
My special interests are in Women’s and Children’s Health, including contraception, pre-conception, counselling, fertility investigations, antenatal care, post-partum and neonatal care, children’s health checks, gynaecological problems, peri/post-menopause, breast care/screening. I am trained in insertion and removal of LARC contraceptives including copper and Progesterone-releasing IUDs.

I am married, have two teenage children and enjoy spending time with family and friends, exploring new places and having fun.
