    Dr Clapp took lots of time to explain what's wrong, what the operation would entail and any long term implications. Easy to understand, took into account my concerns or risks versus benefit which made me feel confident with my current decision.

    I was made to feel completely at ease by Dr Clapp, and felt I was in the best surgical hands in the country for my PFO closure. He inspires confidence. I was always kept fully informed about my treatment, and my particular circumstances and needs were fully supported, despite being a somewhat unusual case. The surgery and aftercare I have received have been outstanding. My thanks to Dr Clapp and his excellent team, both surgical and administrative.

He is a exceptional clinician and cares about his patients, always putting them first in care and treatment making him an excellent opinion.

    Dr. Clapp is an attentive and pragmatic doctor with a broad general cardiological knowledge as well as specialist expertise in coronary and structural intervention. His patient focused approach and easy manner make him an excellent opinion and I strongly recommend him, so much so that I refer my own patients to him for investigation and treatment of possible coronary artery disease.
