A little bit about me

About me

We in Queensland have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. This is my concern as well as yours. I have been interested in skin cancer since needing to have several moles removed while still a teenage. The first melanoma I found was on my father while I was a medical student. If found early there is a very high rate of cure.
I have been working solely in skin for more than the last decade. I have worked at trained in rural areas, the Redlands and Sunnybank. I am experienced in surgical and nonsurgical treatment on skin cancers and precancerous lesions.
For much of my time at Sunnybank I was also medical director of one of Australia’s largest skin cancer networks. In the last few years I left aside being medical director to concentrate on patient care full time.
