I have had a passion for cardiovascular medicine since I was at Medical School and have always been fascinated by cardiovascular anatomy and physiology.
Once I began training as a junior doctor, I discovered that I relished the challenge of managing unwell patients. This led me to an acute speciality. Now as a Consultant Cardiologist I am involved in of emergency care. I find this very rewarding knowing that I can provide patients with life-saving treatment when needed.
For me, the most important thing when you’re faced with anyone that has health concerns is to sit down, talk to them and really listen to what they have to say. Only once I truly understand a patient’s symptoms and their specific concerns, will I proceed with a clinical examination and a plan for appropriate investigations to meet their specific needs. From there, we can develop a tailored treatment plan together.
I specialize in General Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology.
I am a Consultant Cardiologist at Many Beats. I am also a Consultant Cardiologist at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust and an Honorary Consultant Cardiologist at Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust.
In my day to day practice, I specialize in General Cardiology and have specialise in Interventional Cardiology, including diagnostic coronary angiography, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), structural heart disease intervention (TAVI) and permanent pacemaker implantation.
I routinely see patients with symptoms of heart disease, including chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations, dizziness and blackouts.
I have a specialist interest in Interventional Cardiology. This involves a lot of emergency and acute care, including dealing with patients with heart attacks, implanting stents into coronary arteries to improve blood supply and keyhole valve procedures.
I also have a special interest in Sports Cardiology and Inherited Cardiac Conditions and competed my clinical research in these areas of Cardiology.
I graduated from Guy’s, King’s & St.. Thomas’ School of Medicine in 2004 with MBBS and BSc degrees.
I went onto complete full membership to the Royal College of Physicians in 2007 and was successfully awarded an MD(Res) degree in Sports Cardiology and Inherited Cardiac Conditions in 2014 through the University of London.
I undertook cardiology training in the London Deanery and subspecialty training in Interventional Cardiology at Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust. Following this, I was awarded the prestigious British Cardiovascular Interventional Society (BCIS) International Fellowship on Vancouver Island, Canada.
This training allowed me to develop my expertise in managing complex patients with heart disease, including those considered ‘high-risk’. I am passionate about incorporating the use of technology, physiology and imaging in the management of heart disease to optimize patient care.
My award-winning research has focused on Sports Cardiology and Inherited Cardiac Conditions. This led to numerous high impact peer-reviewed publications and national and international conference presentations.

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.
