With his GP and other health professional colleagues at Oakden Medical Centre, Oliver aims to provide comprehensive quality family medical care to patients of all ages and genders. Prevention is the one of the most important roles for GPs, and he wants to work with you to help you to stay well. Oliver is happy to spend as much time as you need to discuss your health problems, questions, concerns, needs and issues, and to consider and discuss with you what might help.
He is happy to discuss difficult or embarrassing topics that you may have hesitated to ask your previous doctors about. He can help with contraceptive advice and is able to insert and remove Mirena IUDs (which you can read about using the provided link) and Implanon contraceptive implants.
It is in your best interests that you choose one of the doctors in our practice as your usual doctor. This allows your doctor to gain an understanding of what is important to you and of your attitudes to your health and your health care. When you have an urgent problem and your usual doctor can’t see you in time, please consult one of the other doctors in our practice.
Oliver is South Australian born and gained his Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) medical degree in 1976 from the University of Adelaide, his Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 1984 and his PhD from the University of Adelaide in 2006.
On two days per week Oliver is a University Senior Research Fellow in the Discipline of General Practice at the University of Adelaide, where his research involves prevention, quality of care, health services and health informatics. In addition, he serves on State and national professional and government committees that are working to improve the health system.
