A Personal Note

“All my patients are pregnant women or new mothers and their babies. Through the years, many parents have asked me to circumcise their infant son. I performed my first circumcisions in Montreal in the 1990’s. After researching a wide variety of techniques and approaches, I decided I could provide this service safely, skillfully and in the personalized style my patients expect of me.
I’ve incorporated recent medical advances in my practice and created a method which uses a new nerve block technique (to block pain) and a longer acting anesthetic for improved comfort. I focus on the baby’s safety and comfort. Of course, I also add the individualized touch that moms all over Vancouver Island know me for.
I speak English and French, and play a pretty good game of ice hockey. My children continually teach me how to be a better physician by ensuring I learn to listen, be patient, and recognize everyone for their individuality.
I look forward to seeing you at my office!”
