Background Information
Biography

I am dually qualified in general paediatrics and paediatric gastroenterology. I consult two days a week at the Homerton Hospital where I look after children with a wide range of problems including critically ill emergency cases admitted through a busy accident and emergency department.. I also practice two days a week at Moorfields Eye Hospital which is Europe's largest specialist paediatric eye hospital. Here, I help to care for children with complicated ophthalmological disorders and run a number of tertiary clinics.
