Dr Caroline is passionate about managing chronic disease; promoting health, and lifestyle choices. She will engage you in setting mutual therapeutic goals; promoting both physical and emotional health.
Patients with a chronic disease will be offered a GP management plan; and team care arrangement where appropriate. Your ‘care plan’ can be reviewed every 3months and she encourages you to take this opportunity.
Dr Caroline is passionate about medical education and supporting medical students with their training. On Thursdays during term time, she supervises Melbourne University first year medical students. You will always be asked for your consent and are very welcome to decline; but please appreciate students are here to learn and are tomorrow’s doctors!
