Dr Brent Williams

General Practitioner - MEDICINAL CANNABIS PHYSICIAN

Brent graduated from the University of Otago, New Zealand, with an MBChB in 1987. After an elective posting to London he then completed general hospital rotations in Christchurch, NZ, and St George Hospital in Sydney. Following general hospital rotations Brent went on to complete his GP training and Vocational Registration in 1991.

After working in Perth for 13 years, Brent moved to the Gold Coast and has worked locally as a GP for the last 10 years. Brent’s time on the Gold Coast has lead to a special interest in Skin Cancer medicine. He also has a special interest in sports medicine as a result of mentoring by doctors involved in the NZ Commonwealth Games and Rugby Union, and a period working as a doctor in the ski fields.

For some time Dr Williams has been investigating the benefits of medicinal cannabis, particularly for those chronic physical and psychological conditions which have only partially responded to traditional first line therapies- or in cases where the side effects of these treatments have proved intolerable. His approach to these conditions is a holistic one, centered around improving quality of life and optimizing the overall level of functioning for the patient.  If you would like to discuss or explore this modality of treatment further, simply ask for a longer, Medicinal Cannabis consultation when making your appointment.

In his spare time Brent enjoys swimming, skiing, photography, music, and travelling with his wife and two daughters
