Specialist Doctor, PhD & Author
“I have been a hospital internal medicine specialist for almost 30 years and for the last four years, have been incorporating the principles of functional medicine into my practice.
Completing my certification with the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) in 2016 was just the beginning. Since familiarising myself with the extensive scientific research that forms the basis of my IFM training, I have had an ever growing appreciation for the importance of underlying causes and contributors to my patients’ symptoms.
If you have a health issue you wanted solving, you may ask, what would we do differently? For a start we take time to assess your comprehensive pre-consultation questionnaire and we also take at least 90 minutes for your first consultation. This allows us to fulfil our commitment to fully exploring the factors that we determine could be causing or contributing to your symptoms or diagnosis. My training with IFM has allowed me to make sense of the many ways in which your diet, lifestyle, stressors, infections, and environmental exposures are influencing your health and/or disease. I have found patient care that involves this kind of approach to be very rewarding, particularly when a patient’s previous investigation or treatment program has not been successful.
If you are at all interested in finding causes and/or contributors to your health issues, I along with the team here at Hale Health Medicine are committed to assisting you. Our approach is highly personalised, safe and involves whole-body-beneficial management strategies. We are continually improving our approach with the latest advances in functional nutrition, nutri-genomics, and neuroscience techniques such as EMDR, LENS neurofeedback and Audio-Visual Entrainment. We are also committed to monitoring patient outcomes on an ongoing basis and providing a platform for clinical research in collaboration with the Sunshine Coast University.”
