    Prof Rinaldi is one of the most skilled operators, particularly in the area of complex pacing, that I have ever worked with. This is backed up with a very broad cardiology knowledge and utilisation of evidence based medicine. He is an excellent colleague and would firmly recommend him.

    Professor Rinaldi is a colleague of mine at Guy's and St. Thomas' where he is the Clinical Lead for Electrophysiology. He is a National and International leader in the field of cardiac devices. He is also an expert in the field of electrophysiological studies and ablation. He is an imminent academic with several hundred publications relevant to the field of electrophysiology and devices and an international lecturing reputation. He is an excellent communicator with colleagues and with his patients and comes highly recommended.

    Aldo Rinaldi is an expert in cardiac eletrophysiology and has great expertise in complex pacing. I have over the years referred many patients requiring his skill set and they have been delighted with the outcomes of his interventions. His patient first care has been complimented by so many of my patients and I would not hesitate to refer to him for any patients needing pacing or electrophysiology treatment plans.
