In the main, I see patients with depressive and anxiety disorders, problems with work and lifestyle stress, and with their comorbidities, such as substance misuse.
I tend not to see patients with psychosis, or who have had public hospital admissions with suicidality, because they are better managed in a team environment, but I am happy to consider a referral you think may be appropriate.
I do not currently provide inpatient care at the Albert Road Clinic, although I refer to their daypatient programs, and I work collaboratively with outside psychologists.
I am again taking new referrals for outpatient care. For patients requiring hospitalisation, I suggest contacting the intake offices of Albert Road Clinic, The Melbourne Clinic, Delmont Hospital or Epworth Hospital. Thank you for your ongoing support.
I have chosen to not have reception staff.
Argus is my preferred avenue for updates and referrals, otherwise fax or post.
I will write to you after a completed assessment, and periodically as circumstances and progress require.
You are welcome to call, either in relation to a shared patient or for general advice, 0412 327 604. You will usually have to leave a message.
From time to time I may order relevant pathology, and request copies be sent to you. In the event of an anomaly requiring medical follow-up, I will advise the patient to see you to discuss the results further.
Under most circumstances I would ask you to refer to your preferred medical specialist when needed.
