I became consultant cardiologist in 1989 and joined as Assistant Professor in Cardiology and Director of Coronary care unit and became Associate Professor of Cardiology in 1994 at King Saud University, Riyadh. I returned to the UK in 1998 and joined as a consultant cardiologist at St Helens and Knowsley Hospitals NHS Trust in Liverpool. In 2004 I moved to London as a consultant cardiologist at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust.
I established Permanent Pacemaker Implantation service at Queen’s Hospital, Romford and I implant more than150 pacemakers every year. The heart failure service at Queen’s Hospital and Community Heart Failure Service in Havering CCG is run under my supervision.
I am a senior cardiologist with extensive experience in all the major fields of cardiology including intervention. I have performed coronary angioplasty, stenting, mitral balloon valvuloplasty, pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty, inferior vena cave umbrella insertion etc.
I take pride in teaching and have been awarded “best teacher of the year” for three consecutive years. I supervise the cardiology training programme at Queen’s Hospital and conduct regular training for specialist registrars (doctors in training to become cardiologists), junior doctors, GP's, cardiac physiologists and technicians. I am training supervisor for the MSc and Diploma in Cardiology.
I have written up protocols for my NHS Trust for the following topics:
Managing atrial fibrillation
Managing acute heart failure
Evidence based drugs for heart failure
I have been heavily involved in the British Heart Foundation campaign to create awareness among the Asian communities for preventing risk factors of coronary artery disease and have been regularly appearing on Asian TV network (various TV channels) for this purpose in collaboration with British Heart Foundation.
I am married with four sons,all of them are doctors in their training stage.One son is training to be consultant cardiologist, another son is a trainee to be interventional Radiologist, another son is aspiring to be a cardiologist and one son is a GP. My main hobby is reading books on history, philosophy, revolutions, current affairs and biographies of great people.
