I am a London-based private gastroenterologist specialising in the digestive system. I received world-class training in gastroenterology, endoscopy and digestive ultrasound. I was part of the prestigious Marie Curie Training Network in neurogastroenterology (NEUROGUT). This was a 3.7-million-euro project funded by the European Commission to create the next generation of leaders in the field.
I did my PhD under professor Qasim Aziz in digestive pain. My PhD thesis was titled ‘Central Modulation of Visceral Pain Hypersensitivity’ which was awarded by the University of London. I had extensive training in neurogastoenterology which makes me an expert in treating painful digestive conditions such as IBS, abdominal pain, bloating, heartburn, constipation, diarrhoea and difficulty in swallowing.
I perform high-volume endoscopy of the oesophagus, stomach and colon every year. This helped me establish my technique to deliver high-quality and thorough examinations while keeping the discomfort to a minimum level. I use innovative techniques such as transnasal endoscopy and underwater colonoscopy to minimise discomfort.
My other passion is digestive ultrasound. During my training in Europe, I was trained to perform advanced ultrasound of the abdomen. I am a firm believer that ultrasound is a part of the clinical examination in specialised gastroenterology clinic. I find it helpful to see live images of your liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen and other organs. I find office ultrasound saves time and enriches my patients' experience.

I was also awarded a postgraduate certificate (with merits) in general medical ultrasound from King’s College London. I currently hold a substantive consultant position at Barts Health, Royal London and Whipps Cross hospitals which I joined as a consultant back in 2018.
I continue to be actively involved in teaching and research. I currently hold an Honorary Senior Clinical Lectureship at Queen Mary University of London (The Wingate Institute for Neurogastroenterology, Barts and The London School of Medicine). I am also a private gastroenterologist in London.
