What do I do?
As a specialist physician of rehabilitation medicine my care aims to improve client’s QOL by optimising function. With a focus on lifestyle health and wellbeing my reviews involve a comprehensive and holistic of all the determinants of a person’s function, health and wellbeing including behaviours and psychological health.
I help people to identify what is most important to them & set goals. I provide expert opinion, insights & multi-disciplinary recommendations that are evidence based. I provide patient centrered, and work collaboratively with people, their referrer and other members of their community health care team.
What type of clients do I see?
I am a physician of adult medicine and see anyone looking to optimise their health, wellbeing and function. People can come and see me for support to improve their physical, social, behavioural and psychological functioning. I see people with existing chronic disease and disability that need a rehabilitation check up of older impairments. But I also see those adjusting to new disability and disease, who may not have had any contact with a rehabilitation doctor as well as those
without disease or disability looking to prevent its onset and cultivate their sense of wellness and self-mastery. Whether you are someone who suffered a stroke years ago getting older and noticing new issues arise, recently had a mild brain injury and not linked into a rehab service but are noticing changes you need help with or a person who simply does not feel well and acknowledges there are changes to their lifestyle they need to make to improve their wellbeing I can support you.
