I was awarded PhD(Med) by University of London in 1999 for research in the role of Helicobacter Pylori in gastro-intestinal diseases and also for developing healthcare systems for managing dyspepsia and upper gastro-intestinal endoscopy. I have published extensively in this area.

I have built up over 15 years’ experience in the management of diseases in all areas of gastroenterology and see most gastroenterology referrals for adults and adolescents.
