Dr Nicole enjoys treating patients of all ages, in all areas of general practice. She provides comprehensive contraceptive advice and offers contraceptive implant insertion, as well as cervical screening tests and breast exams. Having young children herself, Nicole finds it fulfilling to medically assess children and provide advice and reassurance for parents. She enjoys conducting child health checks and providing advice on preventive health measures for kids. She also likes to maintain continuity of care for all patients at different stages of life.

In addition to skin checks, carrying out excisions and biopsies when needed, she also treats a variety of skin concerns including warts, which is a very common childhood skin complaint. Another focus is general health assessments for all the recommended ages, from baby and child health checks up to 75 year old health checks, and beyond.
