    (5/5)
    Explanation
    (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    He took a detailed history (I am a doctor so know!) then examined me. We spent about 20 minutes reviewing my investigations. I had done all these in advance and went to Dr Clapp for a more experienced opinion. He clearly had a complete grasp of the significance of all the investigations done. On asking if anything else needed to be done the reply was that he would review with King's College the result of the MRI and this was done within 24 hours. His only recommendation was to do a 24hrs BP monitoring (I already had a 24hr rhythm monitoring) to exclude the unlikely possibility of exertional hypertension. I have had this done and that is now safely eliminated as a possibility. Although there is still doubt over the final diagnosis I feel that Dr Clapp has left no stone unturned to come to a conclusion and I am very happy with the consultation. He met my needs and attending to my questions with good listening skills and empathy.

    Dr Brian Clapp is a colleague of mine at Guys and St Thomas's hospital where he is the clinical lead for coronary intervention. He is a national expert in the field of coronary intervention and also in the field of structural intervention particularly along the lines of patent foramen ovale closure and left atrial appendage closure devices where he lectures nationally and internationally. 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.
