I am a Consultant Paediatrician and specialist in neurodevelopmental disorders. I have recently fully retired from my NHS post as Consultant Paediatrician at St George’s Hospital, London. I now continue with a very small private practice, with consulting rooms in Central London but consultations currently conducted through my video platform.
I no longer take on new diagnostic assessments. Enquiries will be considered where there has been a previous comprehensive diagnostic assessment and specific issues need further thought or where there is medication consideration.
What problems I can help with…
I see patients, generally under the age of 16 years, who have developmental problems affecting learning, behaviour and communication such as:
- When attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is suspected
- Tic disorders and Tourette’s syndrome
- Where previous assessments and diagnoses give conflicting outcomes or opinions
- Behavioural conditions that may benefit from medication
I do not see children where the primary question is to assess physical disability or suspected epilepsy as this is the remit of a paediatrician with a specialism in neurodisability or a paediatric neurologist.
