A medical opinion you can trust

I am an NHS and private consultant Ear, Nose and Throat surgeon based in Plymouth, specialising in all areas of adult and children's ENT.

Whether it's hearing difficulty or a hoarse voice, I will listen carefully and sympathetically to your symptoms and concerns, and work with you to tailor a management plan for you or your child, explained in a way you can understand. Coming to see a specialist can sometimes be a worrying prospect, so I will do my best to put everyone at ease; with 16 years experience as a doctor, full insurance and a License to Practice, you can be confident that you and your family will be in capable hands, with the knowledge and skills you can trust.

Although I am fully qualified to treat the whole range of general ENT problems, and do this on a daily basis in my NHS practice at Derriford Hospital, my subspecialty interests lie in complex paediatric ENT, Eustachian Tube Dysfunction, balance problems and disorders of the ear and hearing.

As my patient, whatever the problem, you can be assured of getting high quality, personalised care delivered in a friendly, professional manner.

I am fee-assured with most major health insurers, but also see self-funding patients who aren't insured. Details of fees for insured and self-funding patients can be found here.

My consulting rooms are at Nuffield Health Plymouth Hospital, although some private patients will be seen in the ENT department at Derriford, depending on their symptoms. If you are an adult and together we decide that an operation would be best for you, this usually will be done at the Nuffield, whereas children will be operated on in the Plym Children's Unit at Derriford.
