Dr Niels van Pelt

General Cardiologist


“I really enjoying managing peoples heart problems, whether it is assessing a person’s future cardiovascular risk or investigating possible heart-related symptoms. My emphasis is on personalised assessment and investigation including stress testing and cardiac CT.

Investigations may lead to either invasive procedures such as coronary angiography and treatments including coronary stenting or institution of proven and effective medical therapy which will reduce future risk.

However, I often find that the results of my assessment are reassuring giving peace of mind for the future.”
