CONSULTANTS

Consultant Neurologist - Dr Dominic Mort

Dr Michael Gross

I run general neurology clinics every week.  The provision for neurology consultations has suddenly changed very recently because of the coronavirus pandemic.  I will be doing my best to continue to see patients through a mixture of telephone- or video-based consultations and, with due precautions taken, face-to-face consultations, especially where the physical examination is needed to understand what has been going on.


I see patients with all neurological symptoms and conditions, including dizziness, blackouts, tingling and numbness, headache, migraine, seizures, stroke, dementia and Parkinson's disease.


I first became a consultant neurologist in 2007, at the Royal Free and Chase Farm Hospitals.  I had trained with the best in the London deanery.  As a consultant my level of experience grew and grew with the wide variety of patients I saw.  I feel that there is never a day goes by when I don't learn more about or refine something in my clinical practice.


Clinician colleagues and GPs seek me out for my clinical opinion. Patients are nearly always highly satisfied after they have seen me. Being able to provide a clear understanding to patients of what they have wrong with them and how it can be treated has always been very important to me.


I qualified as a doctor with honours in 1993, having read medicine at Oxford University and the Medical College of St Bartholomew's Hospital. At Bart's, I was awarded (jointly) the CC Frears in Clinical Neurology and spent my elective period at the Department of Neurology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. My clinical neurology specialist training took me through four neuroscience centres in London, including The National Hospital, Queen Square, before being appointed a full-time consultant. In 2013, I moved into full-time private practice.  I am appraised ever year and I attend a wide variety of conferences and meetings each year.
