Specialist gastroenterology consultant in London:

Academic and professional training

I went through several years of rigorous medical training to become a consultant in gastroenterology, beginning in 1997 when I completed my degree in medicine at Trinity College, University of Cambridge.

I was awarded Membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 2000 and earned a PhD from University College London in 2008, having completed a period of scientific research at the Royal Free Hospital.

Specialist gastroenterology training in London

I undertook specialist training in gastroenterology and general medicine at a variety of hospitals in North London, and then went on to work as a Clinical Fellow in IBD at the University of Toronto, based at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

London gastroenterology practices

I was appointed Consultant Gastroenterologist at Kingston Hospital in 2009 and since June 2017 I only see patients in the private sector.

Private patients visit one of my own practices; New Victoria Hospital, Parkside Hospital in Wimbledon, Harley Street, London, amongst others.

Full spectrum international training

Under the direction of Professor Fred Saibil, I was able to treat patients presenting with the full spectrum of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Therefore, I am trained to manage both complicated and less complicated disease.

My Canadian mentor emphasised the age-old importance of the doctor-patient consultation and that time was vital in order for all the patient’s concerns and questions to be addressed, enabling them to manage and understand their condition more effectively.
