New Cardiology Clinic at Caulfield Hospital
Caulfield Hospital has expanded its services for cardiac patients with the arrival of a new cardiologist.
Dr Roshan Prakash, a Consultant Interventional and General Cardiologist from The Alfred hospital, has commenced practice at the Caufield Hospital Consulting Suites. This is a bulk-bill cardiac specialist service.
He will see patients with a range of cardiac conditions including ischaemic heart disease, cardiac failure, valvular heart disease, arrhythmias (such as atrial fibrillation), patients post myocardial infarction and cardiac surgery.
Dr Prakash aims to provide comprehensive outpatient cardiac care and also continuity of cardiac care for patients discharged from The Alfred hospital.
“If the patients I see need further treatment or surgery I can refer them to The Alfred Heart Centre for services such as, echocardiogram, stress-tests and coronary angiograms.”
Dr Prakash comes to Alfred Health following training and work that’s taken him from Malaysia to Canada to outback Australia and he’s looking forward to helping people in the Caulfield community.
“Though the clinic welcomes people from across Melbourne, we have identified at unmet need for outpatient cardiac services for the local community at Caulfield and its surrounding areas.
“Our goal is to expand the cardiology clinic at Caulfield Hospital and to also one day provide an echocardiogram service,” Dr Prakash said.
The General Cardiology Clinic at Caulfield Hospital is an extension from The Alfred's Heart Centre General Cardiology Clinic.
Dr Prakash is happy to be contacted for any queries or patient referrals via his email at firstname.lastname@example.org
