I wanted to be an eye surgeon as a child when my father suddenly lost his sight and that gives me tremendous empathy for every patient that I see.
I have worked in Scotland, North Wales and England and achieved a FRCS degree from the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland and therefore have flexibility, adaptability and ability to mix well with all nationalities.
I like learning other languages and speak English, Urdu and Punjabi fluently.
I like to watch tennis, hockey, cricket and boxing and personally like long walks, cycling and playing chess. I relax by listening to western and Indian music and watching movies with my family.
