    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    My patients present with a wide range of different symptoms. Typical symptoms might include chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations, dizziness or blackouts, among others.

    Sometimes heart problems can present atypically and I also see patients with atypical symptoms who are worried about they may have a heart problem.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    Making a clear diagnosis is critical before I can tailor my treatment strategy to the patient. I try and provide holistic care to my patients, focusing both on mind and body. We often start with conservative treatments which often involve lifestyle factors.

    I then move on to medical treatments, such as medical drugs which are usually taken on a daily basis. I also offer operative treatment strategies, in patients if necessary. These are keyhole surgical operations, usually performed under local anaesthetic and with a sedative.

    I am a specialist in cardiac devices and perform operations such as pacemakers and implantable defibrillators or biventricular pacemakers. I also offer an array of other treatments such as cardioversion or implantable loop recorders.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    I am a general cardiologist with extensive experience in general cardiology. I also subspecialise in arrhythmias, cardiac device implantation, and heart failure.
