Personal Profile

I have found that my specialty continues to be challenging and Leicester's multicultural community and their enthusiasm for travel ensures an interesting and varied spectrum of disease. I enjoy travel and the opportunity to pursue my work in foreign countries. My other interests include playing the violin, swimming and spending time with the family.
