My Philosophy ;
“I take great pride in my work, and enjoy working with people. As a general practitioner I have been able to see how the benefits of a healthy lifestyle can improve your well being, and as a cosmetic physician I have been able to see how the benefits of these rejuvenating treatments can improve self-confidence and self worth. I believe that unlike many other medical specialties the aesthetic physician has to be able to balance a strong scientific background with an eye for artistic beauty. Careful and thorough assessment of a patients needs whilst respecting their concerns and expectations, enables us to deliver a personal treatment plan which result in exceptional results and delighted patients "
