Dr Robin Roberts is a leading cardiologist on Harley Street, London who has a particular interest in the management of difficult angina, heart failure, women’s cardiovascular health and the impact of mental health on the heart.
Dr Roberts qualified from Westminster Medical School, University of London in 1982. He completed cardiology training at Guy's Hospital, the London Chest Hospital and the National Heart and Lung Instiute, where he was a British Heart Foundation research fellow. He held an NHS Consultant post Queen Marys Hospital Roehampton and The Royal Brompton Hospital from 1997 until 2006, before moving into full-time private practice.
Dr Roberts had had a broad training in general medicine and cardiology, both invasive and non invasive. He has a particular interest in chronic, refractory angina and in the management of individuals with ongoing cardiac symptoms, despite having normal coronary arteries. Many such cases have underlying microvascular dysfunction (microvascular angina). He also works closely with colleagues at the London Psychiatry Centre, providing support to patients with mental health problems, for whom the risk of developing cardiac disease is much higher than in the general population.
