taatskerijkenEveryone calls me Dr Taatske, I am originally from the Netherlands but completed my GP training in the UK. My husband and I decided that after having worked and lived as a family in different parts of the world for 13 years, we needed to settle in one place to raise our 3 boys.

I am very much a generalist and like every aspect of general practice, from babies and their families through to older patients who often have multiple complex chronic illnesses. My other interest is in medical education of health care professionals and patients. Apart from seeing patients at MHC I visit our patients weekly at Little Sisters of the Poor Elderly Care facility.
