WHO IS DR KATE?
Dr Kate is a General Practitioner and Cosmetic Physician based in Perth, Western Australia.
During her junior doctor years working in emergency departments and on surgical teams she noticed a natural ability and skill in procedural medicine and surgery. Although she was encouraged to pursue surgery as a career path Dr Kate felt more drawn to her patients and their stories outside of the operating theatres. This desire to treat her patients holistically and engage with her community brought her to commence training in general practice.
Dr Kate has always had an interest in beauty and aesthetics and recalls telling friends and family at a young age that she would one day become a cosmetic surgeon. Although having gone down a slightly different path, she has now been able to combine her lifelong passion for beauty, art, science and health by studying aesthetic medicine and dermal therapies while working as a GP.
Dr Kate offers a patient centred focus to optimise the health and wellbeing of her patients while at the same time using her medical knowledge, technical skills and natural eye for aesthetics to give patients a rejuvenated and natural result following her treatments. She is in a unique position to engage and empower her patients to take control about their bodies, their health and how they age. Patients can feel comfortable knowing they are being treated by a doctor who will cover all bases.
Dr Kate is well respected by her peers and patients. She is confident, honest and approachable and has had a genuine love for both the art and science of medicine.
