Professional Profile Rob has been a GP in the Manor Practice since 1977 and as he reduces his hours, has re-trained in the use of wrinkle reducing injections (Botox) which he first started 7 or 8 years ago. He has also acquired the skills of injecting collagen fillers. He still enjoys using acupuncture for various conditions including joint and muscle skeletal problems, arthritis, headaches and migraines. During a varied medical career, he enjoyed two extra years in Hospital General Medicine, spent a year in Australia incorporating a four week role as Ship’s Doctor and organised a 3 month job exchange with a GP in New Zealand.
Personal Profile Rob has pursued many activities including soccer, surfing, table tennis, tennis and surfboarding. He has recently started playing golf and learning to play the clarinet (much to the annoyance of his wife and dog who seek quieter areas during practicing hours!) He appreciates art but has no clue himself as to how to paint or draw!
