David looks after patients with all types of suspected and diagnosed Gastrointestinal diseases and enjoys the breadth of conditions encountered in Gastroenterology. His aim is to prevent his patients from requiring surgery by the early identification and endoscopic treatment of bowel polyps.

After gaining his initial medical qualifications, David worked in the United Kingdom for two years, before emigrating to New Zealand in 2008, where he undertook his training in Gastroenterology.

Following this, David completed an advanced endoscopy fellowship in the United Kingdom, which primarily focused on the management of complex Gastrointestinal conditions, such as large Gastrointestinal polyps and the identification and management of small bowel conditions.

David returned to the Bay of Plenty in 2019, where he works as a general Gastroenterologist, caring for patients with Gastrointestinal diseases. He performs both diagnostic and advanced therapeutic gastroscopy and colonoscopy at Tauranga Public Hospital and Grace Hospital.

He is part of the bowel cancer screening team at Tauranga Hospital and enjoys his role in the endoscopy training and mentorship of Gastroenterology junior doctors.

David believes good communication with his patients is essential, along with an understanding of circumstances relevant to their treatment. He keeps his patients informed and involved in the decision-making process throughout their treatment and recovery.
