Further Information
I am a highly skilled dermatologist with extensive training and experience both in New Zealand and the United States of America. I hold all three recognized advanced specialist qualifications in dermatology from New Zealand, the United States and Australia and am fully licensed to practise in all three countries. I currently specialize in Mohs micrographic surgery and general dermatology and am particularly skilled in the area of clinico-pathological correlation and advanced dermatologic diagnosis as a clinically practising dermatopathologist. I have received awards for my clinical skills both in post graduate training (dermatology) and in medical school (general medicine).

I have worked in academic and hospital medicine as well as in private solo and group practices settings. I also actively participate in several dermatologic societies relating to my specialty areas of practice, continue to present at annual scientific meetings and am an immediate past president of a national medical society. I have published 24 peer-reviewed papers.
