Philosophy of care statement:
My approach to patient care was shaped through working closely with nationally and internationally respected gastroenterologists. My philosophy of care is based on an empowering partnership through listening to your concerns with an open mind and empathy. I enhance your care by providing the most up-to-date evidence based medical practice, and a personalised lateral thinking approach to problem solving, in a supportive environment. I practice holistic care, understanding that everyone has different needs to achieve a realistic outcome.
