Meet Our Team

Phanuel Victor
(BHSc (MI), PGDip (Cardiac Ultrasound)


I am a cardiac sonographer, with a focus on adult transthoracic, and stress echocardiography. I trained at Middlemore Hospital, and have worked across multiple hospitals within New Zealand, and overseas. 

I began EastEcho Cardiology with a goal of providing an easily accessible, accurate, and reliable cardiac imaging service to the community.

My aim is to work closely with GPs--giving them the ability to manage patients in the primary healthcare setting, or if necessary, refer on to specialists with attached results. This should help reduce wait-lists, hospitalizations, and ultimately provide better outcomes for patients.
