Meet Dr David Hassan
My name is David Hassan. I am a General Practitioner currently working in Silverdale. I am a New Zealand graduate with a young family bumbling on a small block of land trying not to harm a few sheep, pigs and chickens.
I am overweight and suffer from gout. I floss about every 5 days except in the week before seeing the dentist when I do it every day.
I am interested in providing a real perspective on health and medicine. I have no interest in magnets or mattresses but aim to focus on the things that matter when considering a health issue, and what has worked with my patients.
I am not trying to sell any medicine, superfood or yoga pose, but am interested in informing the general public with a sound, down to earth, every man opinion.
I write about what interests me, what interests my patients’ and what I feel is important to know. I feel that the more educated about health everybody is, the less I have to work.
