Dr. Andrew Crean

Where did you complete most of your training?
Internal Medicine and Anaesthetics in Edinburgh Scotland UK. Cardiac Imaging in Edinburgh and Cambridge UK. Cardiology in Leeds and London UK and Toronto Canada.

What is your special area of interest?
Cardiac MRI and CT, Cardiomyopathies, Stress Perfusion and all of the former in relation to Adult CHD.

What is the best thing about working in CHD?
The relatively young age of the patients!

What is one thing that you think that all patients with CHD should know?
Very few are cured - most are fixed up, patched up and sent on their way to make the most of life.

If you weren’t a doctor, what would you be?
A comic actor - just love that rush you get from making the audience laugh with good comic timing.

Do you have any interesting hobbies or talents or pets?
My children are my hobby - "the soul is healed by being with children" (Dostoevsky). Actually the soul is healed after the children have gone to bed and I have a large gin and tonic in my experience....
