He migrated from India to the UK as a young boy and spent much of his time in the UK, in the beautiful South Wales region.

He has experience in all aspects of general practice and thoroughly enjoys the variety it presents. His previous role has given him ample opportunity to experience chronic disease management, and he has an interest in Hypertension (Blood pressure), Cardiology and Diabetes management. He is also experienced with the treatment of skin cancers and enjoys work in minor surgery, and has developed a rigorous surveillance program for suspected lesions (moles) for his patients, focussing on EARLY detections and treatment.
