I am very passionate about my career in medicine – it is a fantastic profession. It allows me to essentially talk to people all day, listen to their concerns, and in a small way, help allay their fears and make a positive contribution to their lives.
I have a vested interest in heart disease. It is a problem that affects many members of the South Asian community – to which I belong. Several members of my family have also been affected by heart disease, so it is personal to me.
I believe very strongly in a patient-centric approach. My strengths lie in my ability to communicate and listen. It is of critical importance to listen to your patients to fully understand their complaints. Moreover, it is important to understand the impact their symptoms have on their life.
I specialise in all aspects of cardiology, with a sub-specialist expertise cardiac imaging. This enables me to understand and investigate patients’ symptoms in an entirely noninvasive way.
I have expertise in heart failure, valvular heart disease and all aspects of advanced cardiac imaging (echocardiography, CT coronary angiography and cardiac MRI). My academic interests lie in risk factors for heart disease in South Asian populations.
I trained in medicine at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ medical school and qualified in 2003 with numerous academic awards. I acquired a place on the Northwest London cardiology training scheme and completed prestigious sub-specialist fellowships in advanced cardiac imaging at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and the Royal Brompton Hospital. I carried out a PhD at Imperial College which was awarded in 2013.
My academic interests lie in population based genomics and epidemiology. I completed my PHD in 2013, during which I investigated genetic and environmental factors determining the increased risk of type-2 diabetes amongst South Asians compared to Europeans. I have presented at several national and international meetings, and our work was published in multiple high ranking scientific journals.

It’s the wonderful words of our patients that make this job so worthwhile
Excellent bedside manner / patient care, thoughtful analysis and care. Great cardiologists!
Dr Elghamaz was professional and compassionate in equal measure. He made me feel completely at ease and explained in detail exactly my situation answering all questions kindly and in a language I understood – not medical jargon. A complete gentleman under whose care I have every confidence.
I called Dr Chahal’s secretary to get advice and an appointment for a stress echocardiogram as quickly as possible. Dr Chahal called me himself, to explain the procedure, and he managed to fit me in quickly, as I requested. On the day, he and his colleague carried out the test quickly, efficiently and kindly, explaining what they were doing and why. I would certainly recommend them as true healthcare professionals.
Dr Elghamaz was very efficient, thorough and personable and made me feel at ease through through the process of undergoing several tests and then discussing results with myself and my husband to ensure we understood everything and were comfortable.
Highly recommended. Professional, honest, put me at ease. Wonderful experience all around.
Dr Elghamaz goes above and beyond for his patients. As well as being kind, he is extremely thorough, and I feel very comfortable knowing he is in charge of my care.
Dr Sehmi is a fusion of the best of the old and new schools of medicine. Whilst reassuringly up to date with the latest evidence-based practice and comfortable with all the leading-edge technology of his field, he has always listened to my fears and given informed answers to all my questions.
I had a really positive experience when I saw Dr Navin Chandra in his clinic. He took time to really listen to my problems and then explained what was wrong in simple terms. I had all my tests performed swiftly and have started to feel much better!
Having been referred for specialist Cardiology review, I was very fortunate to be assigned Dr Sehmi as my Consultant. From the outset, his level of interest in my personal case has been exceptional. I have had several consultants for a variety of reasons over the years but Dr Sehmi is the first where a consultant has proactively followed up in between appointments to determine progress.
I was admitted under Cardiology and Dr Chandra was my Consultant. He quickly got to the heart of the problem and he and his team didn’t miss a step. Later that evening Dr Chandra took the time to see my partner and his patience and knowledge gave us the answers to our many questions.
