He prides himself on trust and excellence and is renowned for his personalised approach and use of evidence-based treatments. He has expertise in all areas of adult cardiology including:

He performs the scans and reports during consultations, allowing for a fast diagnosis and reassurance for patients who can ask questions there and then, often reducing the need for multiple investigations. Several thousand scans performed since 1996.
