Dr Afzal Sohaib is a Consultant Cardiologist with a special interest in heart rhythm problems. Palpitations, blackouts (syncope), and heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation can be quite distressing when a person first experiences them, especially when it is unclear why they are happening.

Dr Sohaib applies a personalised approach to each individual patient to find the right tests to uncover the cause and right treatments for each person. These treatments may just be reassurance and advice, but sometimes medication is required, and some people need to undergo procedures such as pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) implantation or ablation procedures which he performs for atrial fibrillation or supraventricular tachycardias (SVT).

He qualified from the University College London (UCL) in 2005 as one of the highest ranking students in London. After his studies, Dr Sohaib trained in leading hospitals in North West London, including the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals NHS Trust. He obtained a PhD from Imperial College.

Dr Sohaib's research interests are in cardiac electrophysiology and cardiac devices. He has written a book in this area (“Decoding Cardiac Electrophysiology”) and has published numerous scientific peer reviewed articles. 

He regularly talks at national and international cardiology conferences. He has also assisted in improving the teaching and training of cardiology for medical students and junior doctors in the UK and Europe from roles he has held within the British Cardiovascular Society and the European Society of Cardiology.
