Professional profile

I am a consultant dermatologist with a special interest in the diagnosis and management of skin cancers. I am fortunate to be one of the very few clinicians in the UK able to offer all the currently available types of diagnostic tools and treatments for skin cancer.

I run the regional Mohs Micrographic Service at the Portsmouth Dermatology Centre, and serve on a number of regional and national committees for skin cancer. I participate in The American Society of Mohs Surgery Quality Assurance Programme and am a Faculty member of the British Society of Dermatological Surgery. I've also participated in numerous clinical trials in non melanoma skin cancer.

I trained at St Thomas and after training in Dermatology in Leicester, Sheffield and Edinburgh, I undertook basic research at Sheffield which was extended into a project in rural Malaysia. Subsequently I trained in Dermatological surgery and Mohs Micrographic Surgery in the UK, Seattle, San Diego and Charleston, USA.
