Professional profile:

Dr Mohsen Khorshid is a consultant dermatologist at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood, Essex and Spire Wellesley Hospital in Southend, Essex, offering private dermatologist care in our clean and comfortable private hospitals.

Dr Mohsen Khorshid's work involves the clinical and microscopic diagnosis and management of patients with all forms of skin disorders. He has conducted research into specific aspects of dermatology, particularly various forms of skin cancer, as these are his specific interests.

Dr Khorshid started his dermatology training in Iran in 1990 and completed it in London in 1998. In England he trained at St. John's Institute of Dermatology and then continued as registrar at St. Bartholomew's and the Royal London Hospitals, completing his final year of training at the Royal Free Hospital in London.

In 1996 Mohsen Khorshid was elected as a diplomate of the Royal College of Pathologists. This, together with his training in general dermatology and dermatological surgery, has enabled him to provide a comprehensive service to his private practice patients.

Personal profile:

As a father of three children, I spend most of my free time with my family.

I am a keen photographer and particularly enjoy exploring cultural monuments, focusing mainly on architecture.

I am fortunate enough to be able to travel frequently, mostly to attend scientific meetings. I always use these opportunities to explore the areas I visit, especially old towns and nearby archaeological sites, coming home with lots of slides and photographs.
