Hi, my name is Krishan Thiru, but most people call me Dr Krishan.

For 10 years, I’ve had the pleasure of being a GP, and I've seen how powerful it is for patients to have the right information to improve their health outcomes.

I’ve also had the privilege of being the ‘go-to’ medical expert for Pfizer Australia and New Zealand, as the company’s Country Medical Director.

I want to use Pfizer’s immense expertise and resources to simplify complex health topics and empower people to take positive action towards their health and wellness. So stay tuned, as I answer the questions you’re asking, and share practical tips to help you improve Your Health and wellness.

My story

One of the things I love most about being a doctor is getting to hear people’s stories.

My story began almost 7000 kilometres away, in Sri Lanka. As a young boy, my family migrated to Australia - a continent with the oldest living culture on Earth, and it was here I developed a love for science.

I could never have imagined how pursuing that passion would impact my life and my mother’s.

To hear my story and learn why I decided to become a family GP in Australia, join a global pharma company, and work with my Pfizer colleagues to make health information accessible and relevant to everyone who is interested in leading a more balanced and healthy life, I invite you to watch the video below.
