I am a down-to-earth family man. The optimum work:life balance is important to me. I have been lucky to have trained in several excellent centres and have been influenced by many senior colleagues over the years.
I am a general Dermatologist with a specialist interest in skin cancer management including Mohs’ surgery and cutaneous reconstruction. I believe strongly in holistic care and the importance of emotional + psychological factors. Clear communication is essential in good medical practice and I so I routinely write to all patients I see with a summary of the consultation and treatment plan.
•To continue learning and developing new skills
•To be a great teacher and lecturer
•To treat my patients and colleagues as they would like to be treated
•Attention to detail, empathic, holistic approach, pragmatic when needed
