I am a caring individual and treat all my patients with respect and without prejudice. I have received a number of testimonials from patients thanking me for the caring and proficient service they have received. I provide a comprehensive service for all paediatric and adult ENT conditions. My special interests are head and neck cancer, thyroid surgery and salivary gland disease. My dual training in dentistry and ENT, gives me a unique advantage in understanding and dealing with problems related to mouth and face. I also have an interest in the treatment of swallowing disorders. I work closely with a speech therapist and dieticians to provide a fully comprehensive solution for this problem.
