About me

I am a consultant cardiologist, heart rhythm specialist and cardiac devices specialist. I also hold a PhD from University College London in diabetic heart disease.

My practice spans Kent (Ashford, Margate and Canterbury) and London (Kings College Hospital and London Bridge Hospital). In Kent I am lead for cardiology education and I head the cardiac electrophysiology and device audit and quality improvement programme.

I trained in cardiology and cardiac rhythm management at St George�s, St Thomas�, and Kings College Hospitals in London as well as Queen Elizabeth�s Medical Centre in Birmingham. After my UK training I travelled to Brigham and Women�s Hospital (associated with Harvard Medical School) to gain further skills in inherited cardiac disease risk stratification and management.

I am expert in all aspects of cardiac rhythm management including lifestyle modification, drug treatments and ablation procedures, which I carry out in both my Kent and London hospitals. I evaluate and treat patients with all varieties of cardiac problems in my NHS and private practices but I am one of only two electrophysiologists specialising in arrhythmia (abnormal heart beats) in East Kent.

A typical patient referred to me might have experienced palpitations, shortness of breath, chest pains, dizzy spells, blackouts, or similar symptoms.

I am also frequently referred patients with pre-existing arrhythmia diagnoses including ectopic beats, atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, atrial tachycardia, SVT, supraventricular tachycardia, Wolff Parkinson White syndrome (accessory pathway) and PoTS. I am also expert in evaluating cardiac risk in asymptomatic patients, including inherited predisposition to arrhythmia and other heart disease.
