I am a consultant clinical oncologist at the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre. My interests are in the management of upper and lower gastrointestinal malignancies and general/acute oncology. I am able to advise on the treatment for unknown primary cancers and have an interest in both radiotherapy, including stereotactic radiotherapy with cyberknife, and chemotherapy.
I am actively involved with research and recruit and manage patients enrolled in clinical trials. I have several first name publications in peer reviewed journals and have presented on multiple occasions at international conferences.
I qualified from Imperial College London and completed my junior medical training at the Hammersmith and Charing Cross Hospitals. I have completed 7 years of specialist training in north London at Mount Vernon, North Middlesex, Imperial and UCLH. This also included a fellowship in radiotherapy at the Royal Marsden Hospital and a postgraduate Masters degree in Oncology at the Institute of Cancer Research. I am a Member of the Royal College of Physicians and a Fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists. I am also an examiner for the Final Fellowship examination and am very involved in education and specialist training within London.
I live with my family in London, am a keen sports enthusiast and and I am also fluent in Gujarati.
