I have worked as a gastroenterologist for 20 years in the Eastern Suburbs and at Box Hill Hospital where I established the hepatitis clinic in the late 90’s

I trained at St Vincent’s, Western and Royal Melbourne hospitals after gaining my MRCP (UK) in London.
I also gained the FRACP whilst at St Vincent’s. I learned EUS at St Thomas’ hospital London in 2005.

My private practice rooms are located in Box Hill opposite the new BHH ED.
