Virtual consultations:

I completed my training in General Internal Medicine and Rheumatology in October 2014 in London-South Thames rotation. I worked in tertiary and district general hospitals acquiring a breadth of experience in managing general and complex rheumatological conditions.

I have a particular interest in management of large vessel vasculitis and the role of different imaging modalities in managing these conditions. I have a strong background in general medicine and dual accreditation in GIM and Rheumatology has enabled me to further my general medicine experience.

I have wide experience in musculoskeletal ultrasound for assessment of inflammatory arthritis, general soft tissue rheumatism and early arthritis. I perform intra-articular injections and soft tissue injections. I manage patients with complex lupus, vasculitis, connective tissue and pulmonary hypertension and scleroderma in both in-patient and out patient settings. I also offer DEXA reporting for osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease.
