I am a consultant gastroenterologist and interventional endoscopist. I obtained my primary medical qualification in 2003. I underwent part of my general medical training in United Kingdom and obtained MRCP in 2007. I came to Australia in 2007 and undertook my Gastroenterology training between Royal Hobart Hospital, Western Health and Austin Health. I have completed 2 years of fellowship in Advanced Endoscopy at Austin Health. I am a member of the Gastroenterology Society of Australia (GESA) and Australian Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Association (AGEA).

I have worked in different health systems and have good medical knowledge and experience. I have special interest in both basic and advanced endoscopic procedures including diagnostic and therapeutic gastroscopy, colonoscopy and ERCP. I have an active interest in various aspects of gastroenterology including the management of liver, pancreato-biliary disorders, gastrointestinal cancer screening, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

My other appointments are at Shepparton Private Hospital, Goulburn Valley Health, Numurkah District Hospital, Northern Health, Epping Private Hospital, and Austin Health.
