Professional profile

After graduating from the Manipal University in India with a distinction and various prizes, I completed my MRCP and higher specialist training in the London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex regions. I attained my first medical qualification in 2003.

I was later appointed as a Consultant Physician at Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, East Surrey Hospital in Redhill, where I was instrumental in developing the Acute Medical Unit - which was one of the best performing units in the region. I joined Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust in 2014 and continue to develop the Medical Assessment Unit, including ambulatory care.

I am a general physician with a good depth of knowledge in all aspects of this field. My practice at the Spire Tunbridge Wells Hospital is a reflection of my NHS practice.

I have a special interest in venous thromboembolic disease, namely PE and DVT. To support this I have fully trained and accredited myself in Adult Transthoracic Echocardiography (Echo) which helps me assess the functioning of both sides of the heart. I am also keen on managing patients with diabetes and other endocrine (hormonal) conditions.

I am a member of the HEKSS Acute Medicine Specialist Training Committee and also the Lead for Special Skills for this region. I am the NHS Trusts representative at the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Deanery Specialist Training Committee in Acute Medicine and also the regional Specialist Skills' Lead.

My initial consultations attempt to offer any relevant tests on the same day. These might include blood tests, scans and echo. I like to spend time with my patients ensuring that they fully understand my explanation of their medical illness and how it can be best managed. I have an active interest in teaching and training and I continuely audit my clinical work.

Personal Profile

My life outside medicine revolves around my wife and young child. I love spending time with my family and enjoy long walks around the beautiful town we live in. I regularly keep in touch with friends and family spread all over the world, which certainly widens my horizon. I also enjoy listening to music and watching comedy. I thoroughly enjoy playing chess and like to keep fit.
