After living all over the world, and with an active lifestyle involving swimming, hiking and cycling, Shahrooz was never going to suit a traditional desk job. He loves the challenge of working in both the clinic and hospital settings, and the opportunity this gives him to provide ongoing, connected care for his patients.   

Shahrooz is committed and thorough in his approach, going the extra mile to find practical, evidence-based solutions for his patients, tailored to their individual needs. He recognises the importance of building strong clinical relationships with his patients, and particularly enjoys celebrating their successes – he recalls the joy of being able to help one of his severely injured patients to walk again, after three months of intensive therapy.  

Shahrooz is fluent in French and Farsi (Persian). He is a true team player and a joy to work with.

Shahrooz’ favourite quote: 

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” – John Lennon
