“Shona and I want our practice to be welcoming and relaxing. If patients sense that our environment is a safe haven, we will have achieved what we set out to do.”/
We know that you and your families are often very anxious when you come to see us, especially on the first visit. This is one of the reasons why we’ve chosen to hang artworks on the walls rather than my qualifications. The artworks are hired from Artbank and reflect Shona and my interest in art and also our commitment to creative thinking, innovation, indigenous health, and making the patient journey less lonely and isolated.

Should you call our practice, Ali will probably be the first person you speak to. Behind the scenes Ali often moves mountains in order to coordinate your consultations, investigations and other appointments.
