Overview

About me

I work at St Bartholomew's Hospital where I have a busy inpatient and outpatient endocrinology practice. I look after both general and specialist endocrinology conditions, and focus on endocrinology without any practice in diabetes.

My specialist endocrinology expertise is in the management of all adrenal, pituitary, thyroid and parathyroid disorders, endocrine hypertension, endocrine tumours (both benign and cancer),genetics of endocrine disorders and endocrine problems due to iron overload.

I run specialist clinics for genetic conditions predisposing to endocrine tumours of the thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary and adrenal. I look after a large number of families who are at risk of developing phaeochromocytomas and paragangliomas and have an additional interest in the management of endocrine problems caused by iron overload.
