Everyone is unique and most of the information on your underlying problem is found through a good history in a clinic appointment. Often there is an over-reliance on tests, which can have both false positives and negatives. The best way to improve your health is with a clinic consultation where we can workout together on what the problem is and what solutions would work best for you. There are many different treatment options including dietary, supplements, herbal, phycological, endoscopic, or medical. Often these work best in combination to get you back to optimal health.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a referral?
You do not need a referral from your GP to be seen in my clinic or to get re-imbursed by your insurance company. A referral from your GP often is very helpful as it contains a detailed description or your symptoms, past medical history and medications. You can ask your GP for a referral or use the referral form at the bottom of this page.
Do you offer urgent appointments?
Yes, I offer urgent appointments. These can also be done by phone or virtually through zoom/skype.
How much does a clinic cost?
The cost for a new consultation is 390NZD and 170 NZD for a follow-up consultation. If you have medical insurance most patients can fully claim this back from their insurance depending on your plan. If you have southern cross insurance we can claim on your behalf (only pay an excess if you have this). For other insurance companies you will need to pay my secretary first and then claim this back from your insurance.
What conditions can you treat?
I specialise in all gastrointestinal conditions, including inflammatory bowel, colorectal cancer, gastric cancer, Barrett's oesophagus, liver disease and pancreatic conditions.
What sort of treatments do you offer?
My first aim is always to find the underlying cause, this way we can cure your symptoms rather than masking them. My approach is always to start with simple treatments including dietary, natural and medical treatments. Most conditions have separate treatments for getting the disease under control (remission) and preventing it from coming back (maintenance).
