Specialises in

I graduated from the University of Nottingham Medical School in 2006. After postgraduate training in general medicine and obtaining membership of the Royal College of Physicians UK, I completed rigorous specialist training in dermatology to become a Consultant Dermatologist. Having worked as a Consultant Dermatologist in London, I then moved to Surrey.

I have specialist expertise looking after adults with all skin conditions using the most effective, scientifically proven treatments in my practice. I am also an expert skin cancer specialist and a highly skilled skin surgeon, operating on cancerous and non-cancerous skin lesions, using techniques to minimise scarring.

I offer a mole check/skin check for skin cancer service. Please do not wear makeup or nail varnish for this appointment.

Alongside my private practice, I previously worked in Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust where I was actively involved in teaching and training GPs and future dermatologists, and played a key role in multiple global research trials in dermatology. I continue to teach doctors and other healthcare professionals and participate in national and international conferences and have won several awards.
