I am a consultant paediatrician with over 25 years’ experience in treating children, from birth to adolescence, with a wide range of paediatric problems. I trained and worked in Rome, Italy, for 8 years prior to moving to London in 1998. In the NHS, I am a Consultant Paediatric Intensivist and Lead of the paediatric critical care unit where I work, as well as a member of the paediatric management team. I am active in training doctors and carry out research on different aspects of paediatrics.
I have extensive experience in general paediatric problems such as colic, nutrition, reflux, constipation, diarrhoea, eczema, headaches, behavioural and sleep problems and eczema, as well as respiratory conditions, including asthma, cough and chest infections. I also offer regular health checks to monitor the child’s growth and development.
