Clinical work has been the most essential part of my work career. I have also had a privilege to engage in academic clinical studies, education and general health promotion with various patient organizations and medical associations.

At the moment I am chairing Finnish Medical Society Duodecim which is by far the largest scientific organization in Finland and I have also been active in Good Medical Practice guidelines (osteoporosis and various diabetes areas). By taking part in international scientific congresses and by extensive network I keep my competence up-to-date.

My appointment times are 30 minutes but you can book also double-time, if more convenient.

As a new patient please book two 30 min appointments in a row.
