Dr Afzal Sohaib is a Consultant Cardiologist with a special interest in heart rhythm problems. Palpitations, blackouts (syncope), and heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation can be quite distressing when a person first experiences them, especially when it is unclear why they are happening. Dr Sohaib applies a personalised approach to each individual patient to find the right tests to find the cause and right treatments for each person. These treatments may just be reassurance and advice, but sometimes medication is required, and in some people procedures such as pacemakers and  implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) implantation or ablation procedures which he performs.
