Dip. Ob's FRANZCOG
I've been passionate about helping people all my life.
At a very early age, I recognized a desire for medical knowledge and began my journey towards becoming an obstetrician and gynaecologist.
Over the last 25 years, I have been fortunate enough to have helped many women give birth safely. I also help women with the expert medical care they need throughout the many different phases of their lives.
In addition, my dedication to ultrasound diagnostics helps identify fetal and gynaecological abnormalities providing a deeper level of expert care for my patients.
I grew up in South Africa and completed my undergraduate studies at the prestigious University of Witwatersrand. I qualified in 1990 and did my post-graduate training at The Royal Women's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia.
I have been fortunate and have worked in all major tertiary hospitals in Victoria: The Royal Women’s Hospital, Monash Medical Centre and Mercy Hospital for Women.
My approach when consulting with patients is derived from the medical expertise and careful, personalised attention to individual needs.
Every patient I see is different. My communication style is open and I provide information in simple language to ensure every patient is informed, reassured and understands the journey ahead.
