About

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 also an honorary consultant at North Middlesex University Hospital where his practice encompasses all aspects of adult cardiology. Here, he has also established the first ablation service for cardiac rhythm disturbances in North London for the local population. He is an expert in managing patients with a range of cardiac symptoms and conditions and has a special interest in heart rhythm disturbances.

He regularly performs simple and complex catheter ablation procedures, using the latest technologies for all arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation. He is a specialist in implanting all types of cardiac devices including pacemakers, defibrillators and resynchronization therapy. He also sees and treats patients with blackouts, chest pains and high blood pressure and performs coronary angiography.

Dr Ahsan prides himself on placing the patient at the heart of his approach. He takes the time to make a complete assessment and takes particular care to explain all aspects of the consultation and treatment to his patients.

I wanted a second opinion on an irregular heart rhythm and Dr. Ahsan was good enough to see me at short notice. Initially, I had difficulty in finding the consulting rooms which made me late for the appointment. Dr. Ahsan telephoned me on my mobile to enquire as to my whereabouts and was good enough to come and find me. Dr. Ahsan was very personable and friendly and quickly got to grips with the facts of the situation. He explained the nature of the problem clearly and concisely and outlined the alternatives available in a precise and reassuring manner. I left the appointment better informed and knowledgable and as there was no need for immediate action, better able to make a decision as to future course of action. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Dr. Ahsan.

From the moment i walked in and had the pleasure of meeting Dr Ahsan, he put me totally at ease with his wonderful bedside manner and caring approach. Not only was i impressed with his conscientious and meticulous approach but also the individuals who carried out my various tests which he had taken upon himself to organize for me. Even though it was not all good news i feel totally confident in his ability to continue looking after me. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

I had the good fortune to being cared for by Dr Syed Ahsan when an irregular heartbeat was detected. His outstanding reputation preceded him and the personal testimonials attested to it. Dr Ahsan's care before, during and after the required procedure was exceptional as was his warm and reassuring manner which has left a lasting impression. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I attended the hospital as an emergency in the hope to see a doctor I was told by reception that there is a cardiologist in this morning and is willing to see me, what a blessing Dr Syed was not only kind but very helpful and continued with my further treatment. Dr Syed is an fantastic cardiologist with compassion and dedication I am privileged to have him as my consultant and I can not thank him enough. R Williams

I was delighted to be referred to dr Syed Ahsan six months ago for implantation of a Pace maker. He is a most understanding and excellent surgeon. His follow up technique and swift answering by email of the most neurotic questions, gives me as his patient, total confidence in his future care of me.

Dr Ahsan treated my 21 year old son for SVT, he is without doubt the kindest, most caring, friendly and calm cardiologist we have ever seen regarding my son's particular condition. He has twice telephoned us personally and constantly put our minds at rest. He has performed a successful ablation on my son and we could not recommend him more highly. He explained everything thoroughly throughout and everything happened as he said it would, he is quite clearly an expert in his field and in our opinion the best.

I was referred to Dr Ashan following chest pains. Dr Ashan basically Carried out a full MOT of my heart and left me so reassured and positive. He is a truly great Doctor and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone. All I can say is thank-you Dr Ahsan for all you did for me.being so

Dr. Ahsan was the consummate professional and he combines that rare quality of being expert in his field together with the ability to work extremely well with his patients. His manner is one of caring and helpful information whilst being open to questions and awareness of his patients concerns and emotions. I doubt I would have got through my recent experience and operation as well without this. He is an all-rounder, and that would be selling him short because he combines all the right qualities you would expect and hope for from the medical profession and they are rare qualities indeed. All communications and information and arrangements were timely and of a very high standard.

Dr. Ahsan was very thorough and reassuring in his diagnosis. I arrived to his consultation room with left arm and chest pain that I wanted to rule out from being of cardiac origin. Despite his first examination indicating that this problem was probably not of cardiac origin, Dr. Ahsan suggested to go forward with additional exams (Echocardiogram, treadmill ECG, and 24hr ECG), to provide further data. Fortunately all the results came back as negative, and once again Dr. Ahsan was very reassuring in telling me that I am not having any cardiac problems. I definitely recommend him.

Dr Ashan has supported me through 18 months of a complex heart condition. In that time, he has helped me remain positive, and has been very realistic and pragmatic in his approach and advice. I have found him to be very supportive and available to me during what was a physically and emotionally demanding period.

Doctor Syed is an exceptionally talented and compassionate cardiologist. I met Dr Syed when I was sort of distressed and in a dilemma about accepting a lucrative job offer as a result of my concern about my cardiovascular health. Dr Syed patiently and diligently assessed me and refereed me for some specialist tests and subsequently he was very meticulous and professional in explaining the outcome to me; which I found very reassuring. I also found his followup and advice on my high blood pressure management very comforting. Overall I found his services excellent and will gladly rate it five star

I found Dr Ahsan to be extremely effective in every way. From the very first appointment he was highly professional, always on time and always followed up in the manner in which he said he would in terms of referring me to other clinics for diagnostic tools and eventual treatment. He was very clear in the way he explained the symptoms, their cause and their effect. He discussed treatment options and clearly set out the medication-based alternatives to a procedure as well as any risk factors that needed to be taken into account in deciding what course of treatment to follow. In the event, I opted for a minimally invasive procedure. Dr Ahsan recommended what he felt was the best available clinic in which to have the procedure and he then went ahead and made all the necessary preparations. Throughout the process he and his office maintained clear and professional lines of communication with me. On the day of the procedure he again took me through a detailed explanation of wha twould be done and what effects I might expect to feel afterwards. After the procedure, he visited me again to explain how it had gone from his point of view and reassured me that it had been straightforward. Since having the procedure (four weeks ago) I have been largely free of symptoms (which was the predicted outcome). The post-procedure effects were more or less exactly as forecast by Dr Ahsan. Overall, I could not be more satisfied with the entire treatment process, from initial consultation, through to having the procedure and then to follow-up. I expect to have two or three more follow-up appointments with Dr Ahsan and I have great confidence that they will be as good as everything that I have experienced up to now. Heart problems are by their nature quite scary. I found the treatment I received from Dr Ahsan, in addition to being effective as far as we can know at this early stage, to be very calm, reassuring and confidence-inspiring. D. Quennell London

I would like to start by saying a massive thank you to Dr Syed Ahsan and his secretary Helen Moss. I have received exceptional care from them both over the last 10 months. I have seen quite a few cardiologists over the past few years since developing AF and SVT during my first pregnancy and I have never had the answers that I needed or the treatment plan that I have now, since seeing Dr Ahsan. I can honestly say that from a relatively young person's point of view, developing a heart condition is the scariest thing I have ever had to come to terms with. I don't know where I would be with it if I hadn't seen Dr Ahsan. I would highly recommend him to anyone out there that's suffering with the anxiety and worry that comes with dealing with the physical symptoms of a heart condition. Dr Ahsan has treated me as if I am important to him, you are not just another number, gaining my trust was so important I doubt I could have gone through with my ablations without him. No one understands what it feels like when you have a heart arrhythmia, even family and friends can't relate to it and from my personal experience it's almost as emotionally challenging as it is physically life changing but with Dr Ahsan and Helen always on the end of an email or phone call I can finally relax knowing that I am in the best hands. I have been treated by Dr Ahsan on the NHS at Barts and privately at the Wellington, on both occasions he went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable with what was going to happen, he also personally checked how I was doing after each ablation. Now, I have the rest of my life ahead of me with my young family, hopefully I can be carefree again and that's all thanks to Dr Ahsan. Sarah Power (32) THANK YOU!
