Christian is a general paediatrician with experience in caring for children with a range of both acute and chronic medical conditions, from birth to adolescence. He has a particular interest in developmental and behavioural paediatrics, as well as common childhood problems such as asthma, constipation, poor growth, unsettled infants and issues with sleep.
Away from private practice, Christian holds public appointments at the Royal Children’s Hospital and at West Gippsland Hospital in Warragul.
Christian completed his graduate degree at Monash Medical School in Gippsland, and is passionate about the delivery of paediatric care in remote and disadvantaged settings. He trained to become a paediatric physician through the Royal Children’s hospital and remains involved in the medical education and mentorship of junior doctors.
Prior to studying medicine, Christian worked for several years as a newspaper journalist in Melbourne. He believes strongly in the importance of effective communication between healthcare practitioners and patients, and in partnering with families to find the best solution for their child’s needs.
