I am an experienced Consultant ENT Surgeon with well over 10 years experience of general Adult and Paediatric practice as an NHS Consultant. I am on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council and am fully accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
I qualified in Medicine from the University of London and underwent my postgraduate training in the North Thames and West Midlands Regions, with additional training in the Netherlands. I am now Consultant and Clinical Lead for ENT/Head & Neck Surgery for the West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
My private practice is based at Spire Bushey Hospital and at Spire Harpenden Hospital.
I always try to ensure that I have listened to my patients and that I have offered a clear explanation of my findings. This helps my patients to better understand their condition and feel better able to manage their condition or consider any treatment options.
