Providing you with the best doctors for the best care

The Heart Specialists is unique in that many of doctors head up their subspecialty areas or have academic appointments in tertiary and quaternary public hospitals. It is testimony to the high quality and level of expertise that comprise The Heartspecialists.

Comprehensive cardiac care.

Cardiac disease identification and treatment now a highly specialised team approach. Gone are the days when a single cardiologist can manage all cardiac diseases. The value of having cardiac specialists under the same roof with skills covering the entire spectrum of cardiac disease cannot be understated.
