I will help you to understand your blood disease, which you may find overwhelming and difficult to comprehend, and I can be trusted to offer you the best treatment for your situation in line with the latest available medical evidence. I consult at the St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney Campus (including The Kinghorn Cancer Centre and St Vincent’s Clinic) and also run haematology clinics in rural NSW including Griffith.

I hold fellowships with both the RACP (Royal Australasian College of Physicians) and the RCPA (Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia) and belong to various professional societies and interest groups. I hold a medical degree and Masters degree, and am currently a lecturer at the St Vincent’s Clinical School (part of the University of NSW).

I am able to diagnose and treat all blood conditions including blood cancers, clotting and bleeding conditions, iron disorders, inherited blood diseases and blood transfusion management Learn More →. I am trained to prescribe chemotherapy and other appropriate therapies for your condition and have access to the latest clinical trials to assist with your care.
