Philosophy of care statement:
“Being unwell is never an easy time and can be very frightening, especially when you aren’t familiar with the condition and its treatments. Specialising in some of the newest and innovative treatments in interventional cardiology, I aim to provide the absolute best quality care for a range of heart conditions. Importantly I also aim to help you understand the diseases and treatments. I try to offer a tailored approach after I find out what suits you and your family best in order to get you back to enjoying life.”
