Dr Kare Tang is a Consultant Cardiologist. He trained in the UK and has been practicing since 2002 both in the NHS as well as a private sector. His current base is in Colchester, Essex, as well as in London.

His sub-specialty interest is interventional cardiology, where he is highly experienced in the treatment of coronary artery disease via a percutaneous method, angioplasty and stenting with percutaneous coronary intervention.

Dr Tang has vast experience in the management of acutely-ill patients who find themselves in coronary and intensive care units. He is also totally proficient in central venous cannulation, Swan-Ganz monitoring, emergency temporary pacing, pericardiocentesis, DC cardioversion, as well as management of complications of coronary surgery and angioplasty.
