    Having recently moved to the UK from South America, I was referred to Dr. Duncan Dymond by my GP practice here in London. Thankfully, I was under his care when I had an acute cardiac emergency and was admitted to hospital. I cannot begin to express how comforting it was to have his expertise, guidance and support pre, during and post admission. I would also like to express my gratitude to Stephanie Reynolds (Dr. Dymond's PA). Her professional, kind and empathetic approach was truly appreciated during my treatment.

    Dr Dymond demonstrates a complete grasp of the issues I describe to him and the treatment or investigations required. He is always able to describe clearly what are, to me, complex issues. He is always very pleasant and unlike many other doctors actually remembers and has comprehensive notes of previous consultations. I cannot praise him enough.

    Always explains things in a straightforward manner without being patronising. Thorough in his examinations but never gives the impression of overdoing things just for the sake of it.
