I graduated from the prestigious DOW Medical College in Pakistan with distinction and then moved to Ireland for higher training. After gaining valuable experience in various hospitals, I polished off my skills at the famous University Hospital, Galway. I then moved to the UK to get trained in the management of complex G.I diseases and specialised endoscopic procedures. I worked at the world renowned St Marks and St Georges Hospitals in London before moving to Ziauddin University Hospital in Pakistan as Assistant Professor and Consultant Gastroenterologist. I moved back to the UK after two years and have been providing an excellent Gastrointestinal service at Medway Hospital since 2007.
