I am a Consultant Dermatologist and Clinical Lead for Dermatology Services for South Essex, based at the Arthur Rook Centre for Dermatology, Basildon Hospital. I also work Barts Health NHS Trust as a Senior Lecturer in Dermatopathology since 1998. I started my specialist dermatology training at Shiraz University, Iran in 1990 and completed at The Royal Free Hospital, London in 1998. I also trained at St John’s Dermatology Centre, St Thomas’ Hospital, St Bartholomew’s Hospital and The Royal London Hospital.
My main sub-specialist interest is skin pathology for which I qualified in 1996 becoming a Diplomate of The Royal College of Pathology. My training and experience in Dermatology, Dermatological surgery and Dermatopathology have enabled me to provide a comprehensive service to my patients with any form of skin disease.
My work involves clinical and microscopic diagnosis and management of all forms of skin complaints particularly different forms of skin cancer which is my main special interest. I particularly enjoy teaching and training and contribute to both post and undergraduate training in Medicine, Dermatology and Dermatopathology in Essex and at the Barts and London Trust.
Since my appointment in 1998 I have led transformation of the Basildon Unit to a training centre for Dermatology which aspires to become a Centre of Clinical Excellence in Dermatology for the area.
