Richard has been serving the Pakuranga community as a GP for more than 25 years, and he continues to provide exceptional care to all of his patients.

With a wealth of experience under his belt, he has developed a keen interest in sports medicine, dermatology, women's and men's health, and paediatrics.

This broad range of interests allows him to treat a variety of different conditions and work with a diverse group of patients, making every day in the clinic unique. His commitment to his patients make him an invaluable member of the Pakuranga community.

In his free time, he enjoys playing pickleball and going orienteering, both of which allow him to stay active.

I find great fulfillment in sports medicine, dermatology, and a wide range of health interests, which enable me to connect with a diverse group of patients and make each clinic day unique.
