A West Melbourne local, Paul has been practicing as an osteopath for 17 years and has developed a wealth of experience in assessing and treating a variety of aches and pains. Paul's focus is very much centered around educating his patients so they can develop the necessary skills to be able to address the specific cause of the problem.
Paul graduated with a double degree in Osteopathy from Victoria University in 2004, which culminated in his two year Masters project being published in the International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine. He has since worked in Williamstown, Sunbury, Ballarat, North Melbourne and had a year working in Ireland. Paul is still currently playing cricket in the VTCA with Williamstown Imperial CC and recently retired from playing AFL footy which he played for 30 years (initially in the western suburbs) and for close to a decade in the VAFA premier division with St Kevin's Old Boys.
As owner of Premier Health Partners (PHP), Paul has overseen the clinic as it has grown from humble beginnings. Formally in Errol St since 2009, the clinic and has since moved into our new offices in Wominjeka Walk West Melbourne (off Rosslyn St). PHP has been set up to provide professional health services to the local North Melbourne area as well as the surrounding suburbs of Kensington, West Melbourne, Carlton, Flemington, Footscray, the CBD and the inner north western region of Melbourne.
