Whether you are suffering from a common skin condition such as acne, rosacea or eczema or are worried about skin cancer or the appearance of a scar I am here to help. I graduated in 2003, trained in leading centers including Oxford University, Cambridge University and the world-renowned St John's Institute of Dermatology and have been on the specialist register for dermatology since 2017.
Your consultation will take place in a relaxed environment with time to address all of your concerns. I will begin by asking you about your skin condition, the effect that it has had upon your life and what your concerns are. I will carefully examine your skin and then will discuss the diagnosis with you explaining the causes and prognosis. Often there is more than one treatment option and I will help you weigh up the advantages and disadvantages of each option. Following the consultation, you will receive a detailed letter summarizing my findings and recommendation.
I treat most skin conditions affecting adults including rashes, acne, rosacea, pigmentation, eczema, psoriasis and hair loss. I have a specialist interest in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and I am melanoma MDT lead at St John's Institute of Dermatology. I rarely see children unless there is a specific reason why my expertise is required.
I am particularly recognized for my expertise in skin surgery including laser surgery, mole removal, Mohs micrographic surgery, facial reconstructive surgery and scar revision. I am a fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon and have completed thousands of skin surgery cases. Skin surgery can be performed either at 55 Harley Street, at the Blackheath Hospital or at the Harley Street Dermatology Clinic.
