“Dr Clapp is a true professional, very welcoming, he ensures he takes his time to explain in a way that I would understand. He gets to know his patience, I feel like I'm in safe hands. He just knows his stuff, and generally cares. You never feel rushed, and ensures there is enough time, so he can truly listen. I feel very lucky and proud to have Dr Clapp looking after me. Thank you My Procedure was minor PFO closure, but of course to me I thought it was the end of the world and he did his upmost to reassure me, even drawing little diagrams. Thank you Dr Clapp... “
