General (Internal) Medicine
I have broad experience in adult general internal medicine, which provides me with a unique ability to initiate treatment of a broad spectrum of acute medical problems. I always assess the patient holistically and considering the complexity of human disease and the complexity of chronic underlying medical conditions.
My focus is diagnosing and treating the wide spectrum of medical disorders that present acutely to hospital emergency departments and the acute medical unit. I provide advice and care for patients admitted to hospital under other specialties that have developed medical problems. I manage inpatients and outpatients with co-morbidities, including elderly patients with frailty.
I currently work as a Consultant Acute Physician at University College London Hospitals
Diseases, Medical Tests and Treatments
I gained my medical degree and completed my clinical training in Portugal, specialising in General Internal Medicine. Whilst in training, I also had experience in pre-emergency hospital medicine, critical care and hepatology. I joined the Specialist register in 2013 in UK and since then, have worked in critical care, rheumatology, care of elderly and acute medicine.
