“It’s extremely rewarding to look after patients who aren’t feeling well and make them better. I enjoy helping those who have chronic conditions and improving their overall quality of life. At Ascot Cardiology Group I really enjoy being able to consult with the patients and provide the interventional service as well – it’s a holistic approach with continuity of care that has many advantages. In my practice I welcome patients from all walks of life, including those from the Chinese community who are looking for easy and clear communication with a heart specialist”.
