Sharon Rochester passed away after a long battle with a rare brain tumour. Sharon worked closely with Dr Martin for the past 15 years and is truly missed. Her bright energetic personality, professional and compassionate service to our patients will forever be remembered. She worked tirelessly to help evolve and implement our dietary and trace element follow-ups. Sharon ensured patients health was attended to appropriately and efficiently.  Honestly caring for patients is what a good team does and Sharon exemplified that. Our thoughts and love go out to her husband Brett and their two sons.
