- Inflammatory bowel disease
I was trained in gastroenterology and liver diseases in King’s College Hospital London. I did my clinical training as part of South East Thames rotation. This had provided me the experience in managing a wide ranging, complex, acute and chronic conditions.
I manage both inpatients and outpatients with gastroenterology, liver, inflammatory bowel disease and patients with complex GI conditions. I treat patients with acute gastro-intestinal bleeding with endoscopic procedures.
Patient safety is central to my clinical practice with emphasis on gentle, kind, considerate and good listening approach to patient care. I always discuss and involve patients in the decision process for managing their condition.
