BIOGRAPHY

I am a London-trained Consultant Neurologist practicing privately in the London and Kent region. For a number of years, I have been also working for the NHS at Maidstone Hospital in Kent and King’s College Hospital in London. 

 

As part of my work, I see a large number of people with wide ranging neurological conditions and I have developed expertise in the management of Neurological conditions including Headache, Migraine, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Neuropathy, and Parkinson's Disease.

 

In addition to my general Neurological expertise, I also have a sub-speciality interest in Cognitive Disorders and I routinely see and treat patients who suffer from Dementia or from other causes of Cognitive Impairment. In 2015, I established the Cognitive Neurology Service in Kent which provides a state-of-the-art diagnostic service for people with Young Onset Dementia and atypical forms of Dementia. In recognition of the work that I have done to create and develop this service, I was awarded a Clinical Excellence Award in 2018. I collaborate closely with the Alzheimer’s Society who provide personalised help to patients under my care. I also belong to the Kent Young-Onset Dementia Network and the Young Dementia UK Network.

 

I graduated from Barts and The London Medical school in 2004 with prizes for outstanding academic achievement and I was awarded honours for a sub-internship in Internal Medicine that I had undertaken at the Mayo Clinic in America. I then completed my General Medical Training in London and subsequently went on to obtain distinction for an MSc. in Cognitive Neuropsychology at UCL, during which time I had conducted scientific research exploring neural mechanisms underlying memory and emotion.

 

Following this, I underwent Specialist Training in Neurology at several prestigious institutions in Central London including St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, The Royal London Hospital, King's College Hospital, University College London Hospital and the internationally renowned National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square.
