where’s that accent from, doc?

This is the question I get most often from my patients. So here’s the story behind my Yankee twang: I was born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, moved to Boston, USA, when I was 5, moved back to Rotterdam when I was 18 and moved to London to go to medical school when I was 21. And I’ve lived in England ever since – most of my life! (even though I’m not a day past 29….)


So, though I might sound like it, I am not actually American. Sorry to disappoint ;)

My medical training is

much more straightforward:

St. George’s, University of London, is where I embarked on my medical career. I stayed in the Southwest London area for all of my junior doctor and dermatology registrar training.

I decided to venture to Newcastle in the Great North for fellowship training in Mohs Micrographic and Dermatological Surgery, at the renowned Royal Victoria Infirmary, after I became a GMC-registered consultant dermatologist in 2016.

And finally I was thrilled to move ‘down south’ to Leeds to join an incredible team at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust as a substantive consultant specialising in Mohs surgery, complex dermatological surgery and skin cancer.

I have a no-nonsense approach to dermatology and skincare.

It is such a huge subject and there is so much confusion out there: as a skin expert it is my responsibility to make sure that each of my patients leaves my office with the most effective, science-based treatments to help them achieve beautiful skin and face their world with confidence, every day.

I want to be able to reach people who can’t come to my office or, in fact, don’t really need to.
I want to educate and inspire.
