As a highly trained and experienced dermatologist I can advise and investigate all skin conditions including moles, skin tumours, acne, psoriasis, eczema and skin allergies. I strongly believe in giving patients time to fully explain the nature of their condition and treatment options available.
Since 2003 I have developed an interest in aesthetic dermatology with further training and experience in cosmetic treatments for private patients such as anti-wrinkle treatments (Botox and Dermal fillers), chemical peels, Veinwave and micro needling techniques for facial rejuvenation, pigmentary abnormalities and acne scarring.
I graduated from the Royal London Hospital Medical College, University of London, in 1987 with an additional first class honours degree in pharmacology. I completed higher medical training at St Bartholomew's and Guy's Hospitals, London, before undertaking higher specialist training in dermatology between 1992-1998 at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. During this time I also won a research fellowship in biochemical pharmacology at the William Harvey Institute, London studying the effects of steroids on skin cell biology.
I was appointed consultant dermatologist for Medway and West Kent in August 1998, based at the Medway Maritime Hospital where I am now the lead consultant. A major part of my work revolves around the diagnosis and management of skin cancer of which I have a special interest. I am the local lead and a core member of the West Kent and Medway Skin Cancer Multidisciplinary Team and a skilled dermatological surgeon, operating on hundreds of skin cancer patients each year.
I am an educational and clinical supervisor for trainee dermatologists from the KSS Deanery and I am well recognised not only for educational work with local GP's and other doctors, but also for presenting at national and international meetings and congresses.
In recent years my main research interests have focused on teledermatology (the use of communication technology and digital imagery to provide distant dermatology expertise) and I am widely regarded as a national expert in this field. I have organised and participated in many educational events and conferences. I have published in and am a reviewer for leading journals including The British Journal of Dermatology. Currently I am the chairman of the British Association of Dermatologists Teledermatology Subcommittee and have been the President of the International Society of Teledermatology.
