I've worked as consultant dermatologist since 2017 and started in Wales. From the outset of my career, I have been passionate about advanced dermatological surgery and reconstruction, with a particular interest in treating skin cancers. However, my dedication to maintaining my knowledge in other areas of general dermatology including inflammatory skin conditions has led to a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of the field.

I am proud to have secured a highly competitive fellowship, which provided me with expert training in complex dermatological surgery and reconstruction, skin cancer diagnostics, laser treatments, and Mos Micrographic Surgery. This has allowed me to offer my patients a range of effective and cutting-edge treatments for even the most complex of skin conditions.

To further enhance my skills and knowledge, I recently completed a Masters in Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine at the University of Manchester. This additional qualification has equipped me with a deep understanding of skin ageing and aesthetic dermatology, enabling me to offer a more holistic approach to skin care.

With my broad range of expertise, I am able to provide my patients with the highest quality of care for all their dermatological needs. I am passionate about delivering treatments that are both effective and tailored to individual needs, and I take great pride in ensuring that all my patients leave my clinic feeling confident in their skin.
