Enthusiasm and empathy
Dr Anderson’s enthusiasm for her vocation is obvious. Her 15+ years of experience (in both a hospital and a general practice setting) have served to increase her commitment. She enjoys the doctor-patient relationship and derives great job satisfaction from addressing some of the more challenging patient issues in general practice.
I feel incredibly priviledged to do a job that I find both stimulating and rewarding. My role gives me the opportunity to keep abreast of the latest research and developments in the field of medicine. This allows me to bring my knowledge and enthusiasm to the care and well being of my patients."
- Dr Catriona Anderson
Dr Anderson’s interest in some of the more challenging cases of long-standing microbial infections, including urinary tract infections (UTIs,) paved the way for the Focus Medical Clinic. Having encountered the fears and frustrations of many longstanding UTI sufferers, she saw a need for a specialised facility to test and treat them in a respectful way.
Motivated by her interest in this area, Dr Anderson travelled to Russia, Poland and the United States, where she observed how therapies used in recurrent infection have successfully helped a wide range of patients.
Dr Anderson continues to research this challenging and misunderstood disease area. Her scientific background affords her an in-depth understanding of the causes, and the most appropriate treatment. Dr Anderson uses a variety of established treatments in a targetted approach, and complements them with naturopathic remedies to provide a treatment plan tailored to the individual.
Alongside this approach, Dr Anderson is actively involved in the research and development of new treatments which she hopes will offer even better prospects to her growing list of patients.
