I have been trained at renowned Hospitals such as the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital London, the John Radcliff Unit in Oxford and The Royal London and Barts Hospitals. Working in these hospitals has provided me with a vast experience of treating and managing patients with a range of sexually transmitted infections including HIV.

I specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and management of sexually transmitted infections in both men and women. My area of interest lies in recurrent candidiasis, bacterial vaginosis, genital herpes and non-specific uretheritis and genital skin conditions.
