Specialist Doctor, PhD & Author
“I have been a hospital-based internal medicine specialist for almost 30 years now, and about six years ago, I opened a private medical clinic in Buderim QLD, where I have been using functional medicine principles to delve into the underlying causes and contributors of illness. What sets my Buderim clinic assessments apart from my usual medical assessments is the time taken and the detailed medical/personal information collected. If you were a patient in my Buderim clinic, your assessment would include a comprehensive pre-consultation questionnaire, a detailed medical/personal history, a mental health score questionnaire, a thorough physical examination and a targeted set of investigations. This initial assessment usually takes place over two 60-90-minute consultations.
My aim in carrying out such detailed assessments is to propose one or more diagnoses that explain your health issue, and if no diagnoses are evident, to outline the most important contributors and perpetuators to your health issue. ‘Contributors and perpetuators’ are those factors unique to you which could have triggered your health issue and/or have allowed it to continue. It is my functional medicine training in particular, that has allowed me to make sense of the ways in which diet, lifestyle, stressors, mental health, infections, and environmental exposures trigger ill health and prevent recovery.
Once I have ascertained the main contributors/perpetuators unique to your health issue, I can provide you with a personalised recovery program targeted at reversing and/or reducing these contributors /perpetuators. My management programs are aimed at minimising the use of medications in addition to a safe and whole-body-beneficial diet/lifestyle/nutritional/
