Dr Mark Robertson decided years ago that mainstream medicine was effective in the treatment of acute problems but wasn’t the whole solution for complex chronic or preventative issues.
He began his quest into nutritional, environmental and anti-ageing medicine and has never looked back. He now has a special interest in all aspects of this genre of medicine and believes in treatment of the whole person not just the disease. From mental health issues to chronic fatigue syndrome to autism to hormone therapy, Mark is excited to see all patients and help them regain their health.
Dr Mark Robertson graduated from the University of Sydney in 1983 and was primarily in general practice until end of 2000. With a change of clinic location came a re-evaluation of what he wanted to achieve. After doing procedural medicine for another 8 years, he came to realise that he wanted to combine both mainstream and nutritional based medicine – an integrative medicine approach.
So in 2009 Mark undertook the Australasian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) primary course and went on to complete various other of their training programs, including receiving a Certificate in Chelation Therapy.
He then completed the Walsh Research Institute Medical Practitioner Education Program training in the Pfieffer Protocol for autism spectrum disorders, behaviour disorders, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, clinical depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and neurodegenerative disorders 2011 and 2012.
Mark also attended the Metabolic, Immunologic, Neurologic, Digestive, Developmental (MINDD) Foundation training in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015. He also undertook training in 2014 at what was then known as A4M and then A5M (American Academy) colleges.
Dr Mark Robertson is one of a small number of doctors in Australia to have fellowships in the two major nutritional medicine colleges: American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, which was the Metabolic and Nutritional Institute (A5M), and ACNEM. These fellowships complement each other, with the American College and Australian College integrating the best of nutritional medicine from the USA and Australia.
Having undertaken years of additional training, Mark’s work now covers many fields from hormone therapy to gut-adrenal/thyroid problems to autism, mental health issues, insulin resistant diabetes to bioidentical hormone therapy and chelation of heavy metals.
Because the colleges are not yet Medicare accredited, you do not need a referral to be seen.
Simply ask at reception to make an appointment with Dr Mark Robertson.
Working at the Wholistic Medical Centre in Surry Hills (next to Central station) since 2012 has enabled Mark to work with all aspects of Integrative medicine.
His interests are in, but not limited to:
- IBS and gut problems
- Mental health problems (Pfieffer technique)
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Adrenal fatigue
- Hormone replacement therapy
Dr Mark feels that being a Fellow at both colleges truly integrates the best of nutritional medicine from the USA and Australia, and helps him treat his patients thoroughly.
