As a General Practitioner with special interests in Men’s Health, Skin related problems, Family orientated medicine and Sports Injuries. I am very proud to be part of the Haan Health Medical Team.

Since joining the Haan Health Team in 2014, I have thoroughly enjoyed making a difference in someone’s health and tailoring your care to meet your entire health needs. I firmly believe your health and wellbeing is more than ‘just a script’ or ‘just one problem’ and each person has their own unique health experience.
So don’t hesitate to come and meet me and let’s get your health back on track now.
I love everything about general practice. I qualified as a medical doctor in 1990 from the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. After working in a hospital for 1 year I decided to go into general practice, and owned my own solo practice in a small town. I was the only doctor in town for 15 years so I got a lot of experience over the years in all areas. After selling the surgery, we moved to a city where I was part of a group practice for 2 years. During this time, I also assisted surgeons during major operations.
My husband and I, with our 2 sons, immigrated to Australia in 2008. I immediately started working as GP in a big medical centre and passed my fellowship exam (FRACGP) in 2010. It is really difficult to choose my favourite part of General practice because I love working with people from all age groups. Female health, paediatric medicine, skin checks and small surgical procedures are special interests.
In my free time, I like spending quality time with my husband and sons.
I really enjoy being a part of the HAAN family, a family with a mission to make a change. I graduated from Pakistan and then after my initial training I went to the UK and settled there, spent a couple of years in New Zealand and then finally moving to Australia and started at Ayr Hospital which provided me with a lot of opportunities to learn and polish my skills. I have worked in different specialities and sub specialities over the years and finally decided to settle in General Practice. My special interests are in Men’s Health, Skin Cancer detection and removal and I also enjoy Cosmetic Medicine. I also perform vasectomies and circumcisions.
In my free time I do like travelling and photography.
I believe my strengths as a GP are in my attention to detail, ability to listen, my diagnostic approach to “solving a mystery/problem” and not being afraid to start from the beginning, possibly taking a different approach to those before me. I am thorough, conscientious and non-judgmental and I am excited to be part of the Haan Health team.
I care about my patients and try to provide a comprehensive health care service for them, whether this is with me alone, or with referral to other medical colleagues or Allied Health services for their expertise and assistance.
My special interests are in Womens’ and Childrens’ Health including contraception, pre-conception counselling, Fertility investigations, Antenatal care, post-partum and neonatal care, Childrens’ Health checks, general gynaecology problems, perimenopause and post-menopause care, breast care/screening. I am trained in insertion and removal of LARC contraception including copper and Progesterone -releasing IUD’s and Implanon.
I am married and have 2 teenage children and enjoy spending time with them when I am not seeing patients.
