I have been working as a Consultant Cardiologist in Reading since 2006. I can provide a wide range of general cardiology advice including chest pain, breathlessness, dizzy spells and blackouts, cardiovascular risk assessment, blood pressure, cholesterol, murmurs and valve disease and palpitations. I have subspecialty interests in coronary angioplasty and stent implantation, pacemaker and defibrillator implantation and heart failure.
I will explore the cardiology issues and concerns that you have and will take time to ensure you understand the problem (if there is one) and the treatment that may be required.
