About

I practice as an acute care physician and as a specialist in infectious and tropical diseases, which means I see patients with a wide range of acute and chronic infectious diseases. I have broad experience of treating infection of all kinds, including hospital-acquired infections and a particular interest in the health of people who have lived in, or travelled to, countries where more unusual infections are a major problem. My expertise enables me to treat patients with various acute and chronic infections acquired in the UK, but also migrants settled in the UK and international patients who need specialist diagnosis and treatment.
