Special Interests: Preventative Health, Counselling, Smoking Cessation

I started in General Practice in 1979 and still enjoy patient contact. The most exciting aspect for me is the ability to prevent the most common causes of death and illnesses. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness and renal failure in Australia which can largely be prevented. We are able to prevent heart attacks completely with medication and life style changes. A majority of my consultations revolve around these exciting illness prevention areas. Dr Day prides himself on his punctuality.
