My Philosophy

I have been a kidney specialist and medical doctor for more than 20 years and believe in delivering the best care and treatment plans for my patients. In my area of expertise, kidney conditions are complex and crucial for the normal functioning of the other organs. I would always take the time to explain and ensure that my patients and their families fully understand their condition and provide them with a customised care plan.

I strongly believe in providing a good understanding for my patients which will lead to the best possible outcome, and a great experience for everyone that walks through my door.
