I have been practising medicine for 20 years now and practising gastroenterology and hepatology for the last 15 years.

I look after patients with all kinds of gastroenterology and hepatological presentation (stomach, bowel, liver, pancreas, jaundice gastrointestinal bleeding) when on call and proficient in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy (both upper GI and lower GI, colonoscopy). In particular I look after patients with all kinds of liver diseases.
