I endeavour to use a logical, thorough, professional and compassionate approach to the diagnosis and treatment of patients. I have experience in Respiratory, Renal medicine and Cardiology and General Medicine and can therefore take an all-round overview of a number of different medical problems. I have a specific interest in complex conditions.
I coach U11 cricket, spend time with my 2 boys, play classical guitar and enjoy exhibitions and museums of history. We recently won the Zooters T20 Challenge at the Rose Bowl and formed the guard of honour at the match vs Kent!
