MBBS (Hons), MA, FRCP, PhD
I run general neurology clinics every week at Spire Bushey and Spire Harpenden Hospitals, where I see patients with all neurological symptoms and conditions, including dizziness, blackouts, tingling and numbness, headache, migraine, seizures, stroke, dementia and Parkinson's disease.
During my London deanery training and from when I became a consultant in 2007, I have refined my clinical acumen through gaining a very broad clinical experience in the subject of neurology.
Clinician colleagues and GPs seek me out for my clinical opinion. Patients are nearly always highly satisfied after they have seen me. Being able to provide a clear understanding to patients of what they have wrong with them and how it can be treated has always been very important to me.
I qualified as a doctor with honours in 1993, having read medicine at Oxford University and the Medical College of St Bartholomew's Hospital. At Bart's, I was awarded (jointly) the CC Frears in Clinical Neurology and spent my elective period at the Department of Neurology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. My clinical neurology specialist training took me through four neuroscience centres in London, including The National Hospital, Queen Square. I was appointed consultant at Chase Farm Hospital and The Royal Free Hospital in 2007. In 2013, I moved into private practice full-time.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Bushey Hospital.
Consultant Neurologist, Chase Farm Hospital, Enfield and Royal Free Hospital NHS Trust (2007-2013)

I am married with two young children, who of course happily take up most of my spare time. But I have always managed to fit an early morning run in the park into my day. When it comes to classical music I have broad tastes, but I admit that the piano music of the Romantic Era is usually what I find myself returning to.
