Coming from a small country town, Shane is passionate about the importance of community and providing access to affordable and quality healthcare for all. As the Managing Director of In Focus Radiology, Shane strives to ensure the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie has access to Bulk-Billed* Radiology services including a range of interventional procedures, which are his specialty.
