The purpose of this website is to provide you with an overall knowledge of common heart diseases and to guide you through the maze of medical terms that might have been thrown at you during the unchartered journey through a recent hospital visit that you or one of your loved ones had to make.
In these pages, I have tried my best to demystify various cardiac diseases and to give you a simple and clear understanding of complex heart related procedures.
I have a keen interest in health promotion as I believe very strongly in the age old saying “Prevention is better than cure”. Therefore, I always strive to advice all my patients about life style modification to improve their treatment outcome and prevent further episodes of heart related problems.
I also strongly believe that for a country like India, where over 70% of population find it difficult to afford modern healthcare, any treatment option should be tailored to suit the paying capacity of the patient and every doctor has a social responsibility to ensure that the solution advised is affordable for the patient and/or his/her family.
As a Consultant Cardiologist in Chennai, I got trained and worked in number of health care set-ups across 3 continents.
I have a broad knowledge and vast experience in various aspects of Cardiology with a specific interest in management of Advanced Heart Failure with VADs and Heart Transplant, Heart Rhythm Management devices (pacemakers, AICD, CRT) and Cardiac Electrophysiology.
If you wish to know more about my expertise, services I offer etc. please feel free to browse the relevant pages of this website.
If you have any specific queries about your heart condition or that of your family members/friends please feel free to contact me by completing the “contact us” page.
I hope you will find the contents of this website helpful.
Always at your service; your trustworthy cardiologist

Everything you wanted to know about HEART ATTACK
I feel so good after your treatment and I am very pleased that I ever met you. You were so patient, polite and listened to my symptoms carefully to arrive at the correct diagnosis (which numerous other doctors I had been to before, failed to do) and then discussed my problem in detail giving me all the options to choose from. I was so impressed with your approach and I simply wish all doctors were as good as you are. I am looking forward to my next review to discuss my progress.
Thanks a million.
Thanks for your wonderful treatment and a kind caring approach, my mother is very much better now. She is all praise for you. May god bless you and your family.
