Dr Karin is a General Practitioner and holistic medical practitioner with a longstanding interest in overall health promotion. As we are all different, she believes in taking a personalised medical approach to treating the uniqueness of all of her patients. Her treatment ethos is to better understand the variables unique to the individual to glean the most appropriate method of treatment. This foster a healthy dialogue between Karen and her patients to ascertain the root cause(s) of chronic illness, which may include nutritional, lifestyle and/or psychological factors. Once this is clearly understood, this allows her to develop the optimal health outcome for her patients, utilising evidence based general medicine and complementary medicine to achieve this.
Special interests include general medicine, integrative medicine, chronic disease, women's health, thyroid disease, autoimmune disease, antenatal care, supportive cancer treatments, children's health, mental health, aged and palliative care.
Dr Karin completed her fellowship with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. She earned a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery, a Bachelor of Biomedical Science and an Advance Diploma of Naturopathy. She also holds membership for ACNEM, RACGP and AMA. Her passion for health and nutrition sees her continually striving to update her knowledge base by keeping abreast of recent scientific studies in both general medicine and complementary medicine.
