Dr Ahsan graduated from Guys Kings and St Thomas’ Medical School in 2000 with a First Class Honours degree in his BSc and undertook his cardiology specialist training at various prestigious hospitals in London where he has worked with world-renowned experts. These include the Royal Brompton Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Heart Hospital where he undertook his fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology and cardiac devices.

His postgraduate medical doctorate was awarded from the University College London where he evaluated strategies to optimise outcomes in patients with cardiac rhythm devices. His pioneering research work was awarded the Royal Society of Medicine National Prize in 2009 and was presented nationally and internationally in Europe and the USA. He has been a finalist in two national young investigator awards.

Dr Ahsan was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at the Heart Hospital, University College London Hospital and moved to the Barts Heart Centre in May 2015 following the merger of the two hospitals. He is currently one of the leads for atrial fibrillation here.

Dr Ahsan was very professional, practical and considerate. He took time to explain all the issues that were causing my atrial fibrilation , atrial flutter and taccycardia and has managed to get these problems resolved so that I am now back to normal. Pre and post procedure, all was explained fully to my needs and the staff supporting him were also extremely competent. Dr Ahsan has a nice sense of humour, too, which is always appreciated! I am very happy to recommend Dr Ahsan, which I do with full confidence in his knowledge, experience and professional manner.

I first met Dr Ahsan on the morning of my procedure up until that point I had telephone consultations. The consultations enabled me to make an informed choice about the way forward to treat the condition that I had. Dr Ahsan was very reassuring and confident about the treatment. On the morning of the procedure he was once again very reassuring and helped to ease any worries that I had. After the procedure he updated me on how everything went and also followed this up with a telephone call a few days later to check on my progress. Dr Ahsan was very thorough and took the time to explain everything throughout the process and also kept my gp up to date with progress. Very happy with the treatment I have received.
