I offer relaxed, friendly and unrushed consultations. I understand how distressing skin conditions can be, and will work with you to achieve optimum and realistic outcomes. Thinking outside the box means I can offer innovative and bespoke treatments.
I deal with all things skin but I have particular expertise in screening moles and skin lesions for skin cancer and treating skin cancers and precancerous lesions. I am one of the few doctors who are able to offer Mohs surgery. I also remove other skin lesions with an aesthetic eye (such as moles, warts and skin tags).
I am also able to help with diagnosis and managing hair loss, helping those with acne (especially chronic resistant acne) and acne scarring, and those with male genital concerns, as well as with rashes in general.
By way of background, I qualified from Birmingham University in 2000 with the gold medal (awarded to the top student). I trained in Birmingham and New Zealand, and have been a Consultant Dermatologist for the NHS at University Hospital Birminghambetween 2009 to 2019 where I led the Mohs and skin surgery service.
I have been has been providing aesthetic treatments including botulinum toxin injections, fillers and lasers since 2007. I specialise in creating harmony and balance to facial features in a subtle and natural way. My intricate knowledge of facial anatomy, gained from carrying out several hundred facial skin operations every year, allows me to safely and knowledgeably deliver treatments. I use my aesthetic skills in delivering optimum outcomes for patients with medical conditions which may affect appearance such as acne, pigmentation and scarring.
