I am a UK qualified Consultant Dermatologist, having gained my medical degree in 1995 from the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy’s and St Thomas' Hospitals.

I accept referrals from adults and children, consulting on a wide variety of dermatological conditions such as moles, skin cancers, skin surgery to remove benign and cancerous lesions, cryotherapy for warts and pre-cancerous skin lesions, hair and scalp disorders and inflammatory conditions including eczema, psoriasis, acne and rosacea.

I have been an NHS consultant since 2005, undertaking my dermatology training at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. I was appointed as a Consultant Dermatologist at Medway NHS Foundation Trust in 2006 and held an Honorary Dermatology Consultant post at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust.
