Professional statement

Dr Vinay Kumar Bhatia is a highly-experienced, fully UK trained general adult cardiologist based at the Tunbridge Wells hospital, Pembury, Royal Tunbridge Wells. He specialises in cardiology, having held the position as a consultant cardiologist since 2009. In his role to-date, he has obtained particular specialist expertise in cardiac imaging, echocardiography, stress echocardiography, as well as transoesophageal echocardiography and CT coronary angiography

Dr Bhatia obtained an MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) at the Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital Medical School, London, in 1994, and has gained up to 15 years' worth of formal training in general medicine and cardiology at highly-renowned London-based teaching hospitals. Within this period of training, this distinguished doctor completed a PhD in science research (Vascular Biology & Immunology) at the Imperial College London in 2005. 

Impressively, Dr Bhatia supervises and performs approximately 1,000 transthoracic echocardiograms and over 500 stress echocardiograms per year. He is directly involved in the care of over 1,000 patients on a yearly basis and provides expert testing and/or opinions on treadmill stress testing, transthoracic echocardiography, CT coronary angiography, transoesophegeal echocardiography, as well as electrocardiographic and holter monitoring analysis. 

In relation to Dr Bhatia's mission statement, he affirms that he is proud to mainly practice in the NHS, but over the years he has grown to appreciate the constraints on consultation and waiting times for many tests and procedures. Dr Bhatia stresses and recognises that this is not always best suited for many patients who need more time for a doctor to listen to their medically related issues, with greater in-depth discussion and explanation about why and how adult cardiologists carry out cardiac investigations in order to provide either an explanation (diagnosis) for patients' symptoms, or at the very least, reassurance and peace of mind.
