About Georgia

My approach to care: I find it very rewarding to work with patients to help them achieve their goals and recover from their injury or condition. I always strive to achieve an outcome that the patient is happy with and one that enables each individual to do what they need to in their lives, both work and play. I understand the importance of listening to patient’s in order to understand their perspective and how their injury or condition affects their daily life.

 

I love keeping fit, spending time with family and friends, meeting new people and travelling to new places.
