About me

I am a general practitioner, graduated from the Catholic University of Louvain in 2022 with Great Distinction. I also obtained a certificate in electrocardiography in 2020 which allows me to perform and interpret electrocardiograms (ECG). 

Several reasons led me to exercise the wonderful profession of general practitioner. First of all, the unique and special relationship of trust between a doctor and his patient. It allows to take care of a medical problem in a comprehensive way while taking into account the specificities of his patient. I also chosed this specialty for the diversity of pathologies and patients (children, adults, elderly people).


In addition to my activity as a general practitioner, I also work in a hospital emergency department as well as in a company that organizes the repatriation of patients from abroad. 

I warmly welcome you to my office on Monday and Wednesday and on Tuesday and Friday mornings in French, Italian, Spanish or English.

Filling Prescription

Medical Record (DMG)

It is strongly recommended for patients affiliated with the Belgian health insurance to have an complete medical file with a general practitioner.

This file improves the quality of care, centralizes your health data and allows you greater reimbursement of your consultation by the health insurance.


It is fully paid by the health insurance, so you don't have to pay anything.
To create it, just let me know during the consultation. 


Emergency Vehicles


In case of vital emergency, dial 112.

For non-vital emergency, if I am not available, contact the general medicine on-call by dialing 1733 (contracted rates, during weekday evenings and weekends) or
