I am a highly experienced and accomplished consultant with a focus on respiratory medicine and general medicine.

With over 18 years of experience, I have provided exceptional care to patients facing complex respiratory and general/internal medicine conditions. My expertise is in diagnosis and treatment of asthma, COPD and breathlessness.

I led for years a specialist Airways Disease Service, looking after difficult to treat patients with asthma, COPD and breathlessness. The service saw over 1,000+ patients per year, offering a wide range of diagnostics with modern radiology, endoscopy and multidisciplinary support for the patients.

I continue to work at one of the world’s leading heart and lungs centre and undoubtedly Britain’s most famous lung hospital - the Royal Brompton Hospital in London, where I hold an honorary contract.

In my clinical practice I combine the experience of working in large teaching and university centres as well as local general hospitals, offering a breadth of knowledge and experience of respiratory and medical conditions. I specialise in asthma, breathlessness and COPD - underpinned by years of practice across the whole field of respiratory conditions and wider medicine.

I was one of the first consultants in the country to treat COVID patients. I led the pandemic response in my hospital in London, treated hundreds of severe cases at the frontline on the wards and in high dependency care, allowing me to acquire extensive clinical experience in management of acute COVID infection and post- COVID respiratory complications. I offer on spot spirometry in my clinic, to diagnose any lung related breathing problems as a quick and convenient diagnostic process.

Over the years I have treated thousands of patients with respiratory conditions. My specialist service saw in excess of 1,000 per year and I treated over 1,500 patients with COVID during the pandemic.

I am a Clinical Director in charge of community adult medical services, covering the vast majority of the county of Sussex. I have previously held local senior managerial positions as a senior doctor in my hospital and also the local borough.

I have extensive academic research and teaching experience in asthma and allergy. I train medical students as an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at St Georges Medical School, the University of London, and Brighton and Sussex Medical School. I have also worked as Adviser to the British Thoracic Society and have been instrumental in developing and advising on national treatment guidelines for COPD.

Having lived in many countries, I have experienced medical practice in Poland and Germany and speak fluent German, Polish and am comfortable in Russian.

Consultations can be both face-to-face in state of the art hospital facilities in Brighton or per video from the comfort of your own home - anywhere in the world.
