Interests

Other interests

Dr Anderson’s interest in some of the more challenging cases of long-standing microbial infections, paved the way for the Focus Medical Clinic. Having encountered the fears and frustrations of many hundreds of sufferers, she saw a need for a specialised facility to test and treat them in a respectful way. Motivated by her interest in this area, and thirst for more knowledge, Dr Anderson travelled to Russia and the United States, where she observed how therapies used in chronic infection have helped a wide range of patients.
