I qualified from St Marys Hospital Medical School, having made the decision to study medicine at the age of 6.
I hold the Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners. For the last 20 years I have been a partner in a busy NHS practice in North London and in parallel have developed a flourishing private practice bringing the excellence of my NHS knowledge to the private sector.
I pride myself on having a unique style with my patients. Any problem however small is important and it is by listening to my patients carefully, that I can pick up that vital piece of the history that can lead to a diagnosis.
A GP has to be a jack of all trades and realise when to refer on for further care. Over the years I have developed a wide personal network of specialists who are available at the end of the phone for advice.
Within general practice my special interests are diabetes, hypertension, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology and mental health.
As a partner in an NHS practice I undergo a rigorous annual appraisal which now includes feedback from both patients and colleagues. The testimonials are taken from my 2013-2014 appraisal. Post graduate education is very important to me in order to keep up to date with the latest developments in medicine.
I write a monthly column in Vantage Magazine, which is distributed throughout Northwest London.
I am married with two children and live locally. Outside medicine my special interests are music and travel. I also speak and can consult in French.
