    Atrial fibrillation (AF) was picked up by routine medical examination in 2015; Dr Pellerin has exuded calm and provided reasoned assurance since first meeting me within 24 hours of my AF being identified. His methodical explanation throughout has given me much re-assurance and he has a very engaging genial manner.
