Dr. Singh is committed to promoting excellence and motivating positive change in creating value for patients. Most recently, Dr. Singh has become one of the first Cardiologist to introduce two innovative procedures to Kern County: Watchman LAAC (Left Atrial Appendage Closure) Implant, which reduces patients’ alternative long-term need for blood-thinning medication and reduce the risk of strokes in patients with atrial fibrillation; and TAVR (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement) which is a minimally invasive procedure to close holes in the heart.
