I am involved in all aspects of cardiology, including acute coronary syndromes, valvular heart disease, arrhythmias, heart failure, fainting, chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations etc. My particular interests are invasive cardiology, echocardiography (including transoesophageal echocardiography), and pacemaker implantation.

I initially specialised in internal medicine in South Africa, and then emigrated to the UK in 1995 to specialise in cardiology. I am a consultant cardiologist at Watford General Hospital.

My private practice is based at the Spire Bushey Hospital, with specialist echo procedures done at Watford General Hospital, and invasive procedures done at The Wellington Hospital and Watford General Hospital.
