My Philosophy

I take pride in providing reliable high-quality patient-centred evidence-based care.  One of the fundamental beliefs which guide my practice of medicine is that every single patient is unique.  I work with each individual to help find the best solution to their digestive health problems.  This includes the right tests, the right treatments, the right diet and the right advice. 

I will only order those tests which I feel are likely to contribute to the understanding of a patient’s problems or which are recommended by evidence-based guidelines.  I will keep working with my patients to find a solution to their digestive problems, however many visits it may take.

I know the thought of talking to a stranger about digestive issues can be awkward and so I always approach each consultation with respect, consideration, and kindness.  I will always take the time to listen to my patients to ensure I fully understand the reason for their visit, their concerns, and the impact of their problems. Similarly, I will always take time to explain tests, procedures, results, and findings so my patients fully understand what is happening with their digestive care.

I look forward to helping you with your digestive health problems.
