Professional profile

I graduated in Calcutta, India in 1992 and came to UK for higher training. Within two years I successfully cleared his professional exams and started my specialty training in the Cambridge rotation. During my training years, I did my research for an MD on hormonal effects of weight loss and exercise. I started my Consultant job at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital in November 2002. Between 2008-2009, I went to India to work within the health services in India.

Currently I am heavily involved in junior doctor training, working towards preparing the ‘doctors of the future’ and examining for the Final MB and for MRCP exams. I have continued to develop the endocrine service at his NHS hospital, being active in setting up a Diabetes Foot Care and Adolescent Endocrine service. I have presented locally and nationally in meetings and am active in research aspects of endocrinology.

Although I provide a specialist opinion on all endocrine problems, I find it rewarding to be able to help patients with non-specific symptoms, unexplained tiredness, uncontrolled hypertension, and electrolyte imbalances – areas that are not commonly dealt with. My liaison work with dietetics helps me to treat weight disorders and diabetes.

Personal Profile

I live in St Albans with my wife and daughter. I enjoy my life in medicine and outside medicine as well. Photography, cooking, and gardening are my main hobbies – and I pursue them equally. I am an avid sports fan – a retired footballer after a sports injury, but I play cricket regularly. Having done the Great North Run before I was 40, I am now targeting the London Marathon before I am 50! I love music, mainly eastern semi-classical. Following my childhood desire to play the piano, I have started taking lessons and realised the importance of the brain learning to talk to both hands simultaneously!
