I was born in Golden Bay and spent most of my school years in Nelson, so it was great to return here as a House Surgeon after graduating from Otago Medical School. I did the usual working overseas (Bermuda and Britain) before coming back to Nelson to take up General Practice.
General Practice is a natural choice for me in medicine, as I enjoy the variety, the long term contact with patients and the relationships that come from that. While I enjoy all aspects of General Practice, I have special interest in minor surgery including skin cancer surgery and vasectomies.
My wife Ruth and I have two sons who are both Doctors.
Outside of medicine I enjoy getting back to Golden Bay, gardening and getting some exercise. The mountain bike keeps me and the dog fit and I train at Seido Karate and get out for a surf at Snappers whenever I can.

The journey from high country childhood to General Practice in Nelson has been an interesting one, and without regret. I was here in Nelson as a House Surgeon initially and then returned to take up General Practice after further study and travel.
We have brought up two children here, and the area has been very good to us. I continue to enjoy all aspects of General Practice, and treasure the interactions I have with patients.
Outside work I try to keep a bit fit with some running and biking, enjoy ski touring and now the kids have left home, more fly-fishing. I travel a lot, and further to this have two clinics a week dedicated to Travel Medicine, as the “Travel Doctor” in the north of the South Island.

I was born in Taipei, grew up in Christchurch and went through Otago medical school. After graduation I was lucky to have worked in Nelson hospital for a couple of years as a house surgeon and married my wife Sarah. We have spent the past few years doing GP training in Tauranga and are grateful for the opportunity to come back to Nelson with our children to be closer to family.
The most enjoyable aspect about primary care is being part of the community and journeying with the patients. I enjoy all aspects of general practice and further to general GP training I have further studies in skin cancer dermoscopy and sport/exercise medicine. I look forward to meeting you in the future.

I grew up Dunedin and Christchurch with a few years in London at one stage. I studied medicine at Otago University. For several years I worked as a locum GP interspersed with work as an expedition doctor in various mountainous areas of the world.
Since moving to Nelson in 2002, I have been committed to general practice with an interest in women's health. I have two daughters and enjoy the balance of work and home life and the challenges of each.
From time to time I love to revisit the mountains for an active adventure with friends and family.

Originally from the Kapiti Coast, I am now a converted South Islander. I completed my university study in the Dunedin and Christchurch Schools of Medicine and have subsequently worked in both Christchurch and Nelson Hospitals.
My partner Ben and I have lived in Nelson for three years and we love the lifestyle here. We love the tramping, mountain biking, fishing, swimming and ski touring on offer. We aim to make the most of our weekends by getting out to explore with our dog Kiko.
General Practice is a good fit for me; no day is ever the same and I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. My goal is to help people to better understand their health and so be able to manage their health better for themselves.
