Meet APSA’s Medical Team

APSA’s team is growing… We have recently welcomed a number of new consultants amongst us. Not only does each health professional help us to provide a better service to our patients but also, positions APSA as a reference point in the fight against diabetes in Mauritius.

Dr Anju Gunness, Diabetologist and Endocrinologist, pursued her studies in Ireland and will be consulting at APSA every Friday as from the 8th of June.

A podiatrist has recently been added to the Foot Care Clinic team – Nelly Joganah.  The latter has considerable work experience in France and Mauritius. She specializes in taking care of the diabetic foot so as to prevent amputation and educates patients on proper foot care.  Nelly consults patients at APSA every Tuesday.

We also have a General Practitioner, Dr Shashi Panchoory, who has been working with us since last year.  The doctor provides diabetic consultations and oversees the patients that enter in to the neuro rehabilitation.  He consults every Monday.

APSA’s newest arrival, Aroushinee Goorapah, is a qualified dietitian who attained her qualifications from Cape Town, South Africa. She is currently working in collaboration with our dietitian, Teenusha Soobrah, participating in Nutrition workshops and individual consultations.

Last but most certainly not the least, Dr Noor Abbassakoor, renowned Diabetologist and Endocrinologist, studied in Ireland and in the USA and has gained much experience practicing abroad. Dr Abbasakoor started with us a few months ago and he consults complicated diabetes cases every Thursday.
