What inspired you to pursue a career in medicine?

I have always been passionate about helping people. 

What do you believe is the most rewarding aspect of being a doctor?

Being the conduit that helps people to live the best life possible.

How do you make the healthcare experience more comfortable for patients who may have anxiety or fear related to medical visits?

Wonderfully relaxing waiting room and super friendly and helpful staff

Can you share a patient success story that was particularly memorable for you?

I have many patients with autoimmune conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ulcerative colitis and cancer that have managed to come off heavy chemotherapy-like drugs with terrible side effects through the use of LDN (Low dose naltrexone).

How do you stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in your field?

I attend regular educational CPD lectures and seminars live and virtually to keep up with the latest trends in health care.

What do you believe sets your practice apart from others in your area?

Caring patient-centred approach to patients.

What's your philosophy on preventive care, and how do you work with patients to achieve it?

Prevention is way better than trying to cure complex diseases. We do regular health checks and interventions to prevent chronic diseases and disability.

What resources do you recommend to your patients who want to take a more active role in their health?

I regularly supply my patients with websites and videos about their illness/condition so that they understand and can assist in the management of their own health rather than just being told to take these tablets.

Can you share an example of a medical misconception you often encounter and correct for your patients?

Alcoholism and addiction are a flaw in your personality and your fault. They are treatable conditions like high blood pressure and are not your fault.
