Brief History                                                                                                      


I graduated in medicine from Otago University in 1974 and received the Diploma in Obstetrics in 1976. I worked as a rural general practitioner at the Dargaville Medical Centre for 17 years and earned admission to the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners in 1984. I came to Auckland in 1994, when my wife was appointed as a minister in Howick, and in collaboration with Doctors Mark Denekamp and Serene Hu, established Millhouse Medical Centre.
I am skilled in the care of pregnancy (over 700 babies delivered) and infant care. I am also experienced in emergency medicine, care of the elderly and strategies to attain better health. Over the last 30 years I have pursued specialised training in diet, nutritional therapies and acupuncture.
My wife Vivian and I have four adult children and seven grandchildren. When I am not busy with medical practice and community involvement, I enjoy family activities, reading, gardening, swimming and playing the piano.

Medical Philosophy

I aim to assist each person to attain quality health. I often use conventional medical therapies but in many cases inherent life energy can be enhanced with simple interventions in areas like nutrition, exercise, mind transformation and lifestyle change.

Special Interests

Acupuncture treatment - for pain states, muscle and joint injuries and other diseases.
Mind-body intervention - relaxation techniques, meditation, prayer, taichi etc
Nutritional therapies - using diet, nutritional supplements and herbal medicines.
Natural hormone therapies - using physiological doses of the body's hormones
