About Me

I was born in Durban, South Africa, were I spent the first 18 years of my life before following in the my fathers footsteps and studying medicine in Bratislava, Slovakia.  

I graduated in 2001 and moved to England to continue my career in hospital medicine. Having completed 3 years of hospital rotations in Telford and Poole Hospitals I pursued a career in General Practice. 

I spent my first year under the guidance of a mentor in Poole, before working independently as a Locum GP covering the South Coast of England, which I continued for 12 months. 

In 2009 I took the opportunity to relocate to Australia and practiced as a GP in the Redcliffe and North Lakes areas of Queensland for nearly 3 years. 

Following my further relocation to the Sunshine Coast in March 2011, and am looking forward to meeting new patients and making the most of the Sunshine Coast lifestyle.
