About

Bio

I am an adult cardiologist specializing in non-invasive imaging, especially in the diagnosis and management of heart and vascular disease. More recently I have been focusing on the use of 3D cardiac and vascular ultrasound in the assessment and repair of valvular heart disease.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

This is the 6th time the ECG showed similar results. Doctors pretty sure I don't have RVH but has abnormality in the valve. Should I worry?
