Ballarat Cardiology was established in 2012 by Drs. Chris Hengel and Rodney Reddy with the aim to provide a wide range of cardiac services to the community of Western Victoria. Ballarat Cardiology has 10 Cardiologists including a variety of cardiac sub-specialties such as coronary intervention, pacing, echo, stress testing, electrophysiology and cardiac surgery reviews.

To ensure a high quality service designed to meet the demands of residents in the rural areas of our region, we offer remote clinics in Ararat, Hamilton, Horsham, Maryborough and Stawell as well as Bacchus Marsh and Ballan. While not all appointments are able to be provided to residents of these areas, we do attempt to make them available to those in most need.
To ensure an excellent service to our regional patients in addition to our remote clinics we also offer a Telehealth service to aim to avoid long periods of travel for review appointments. Learn more about our Teleheath service (Outpatient Clinics)
