I trained at University College and Middlesex School of Medicine, London, gaining a BSc in anatomy and neurosciences before graduating in 1993. I completed my general medical training in Poole, Dorset, and returned to London and South East Thames to complete my specialist training at the Kent & Sussex, Guy's & St Thomas's, Kings College and Lewisham Hospitals. I am dual accredited in general (internal) medicine and gastroenterology. My research into non-invasive investigation of small bowel pathology, including capsule endoscopy and faecal calprotectin, culminated in the award of Doctor of Medicine in 2008.
I have been a consultant at the Tunbridge Wells hospital since December 2008 where I head a department of eight gastroenterologists and am happy to receive referrals on all aspects of gastroenterology and hepatology, including small bowel pathology and nutrition. I am one of only two consultants in Tunbridge Wells accredited to perform colonoscopy on the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program. I also offer a new pain free investigation of the bowel using a pill-size camera to investigate internal problems. Capsule endoscopy is available to both insured and uninsured patients.
