MB ChB 1986 Otago; FRACP 1995


I have practiced as a general and transplant nephrologist in Wellington for 25 years. I was previously Clinical Leader of the Renal Service, and more recently Clinical Director of Medical Services at Wellington Hospital. I have held leadership roles in nephrology both in New Zealand and in Australasia, and am a strong advocate for dialysis and transplantation services.


I deal with all aspects of kidney disease with particular interest in glomerulonephritis, chronic disease and secondary hypertension.
