Born in the Netherlands, I initially completed my degrees as a cancer researcher. I then moved to Australia, where I trained as a gastroenterologist. I moved my wife and two children to New Zealand to perform advanced interventional endoscopy. This work is very satisfying to me as I can have a big impact on the heath outcomes of my patients.

I am passionate about education outside my work as well. For the last 3 years I have run the "spaceteddy" project at Forrest Hill primary school. By sending a teddy bear into near space, the children learn about science, environment as well as computer programming.

Dr Marius is a great doctor. He goes over and above the expected standard of care when dealing with his patients. He’s smart, kind and patient, especially during stressful times. He genuinely cares about people, and that coupled with the practice of medicine makes for an excellent medical practitioner.

I was incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful kind Dr. I hope if I ever need to have this produce done...

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Marius. I proved to be a very challenging patient to diagnose and consequently have experienced a number of procedures with Marius. I was extremely nervous but every time he put me totally at ease. He has such a calm positive and caring demeanour. He is totally empathetic, and a great listener and manages to blend this with extreme efficiency. Marius goes above and beyond and always returns my txts or calls of concern within a short space of time. I have...
