Personal Statement

My care philosophy is to work directly with my patients, to deliver the outcomes that they desire, and within this, be honest, approachable, engaging and committed to their entire care journey. I am truly thrilled to see my patients go through the process of our bariatric program, and to hear about their successes to lead healthier, longer and better lives. It is truly a privilege to have a job which enables me to have such a direct impact on individuals, and their families.
