    Dr Smith was very thorough and explained the procedure I was having carried out clearly using language that made it easy for me to understand. He spoke to me during the procedure and following the procedure he spent time with me in my room telling me exactly what he had done to correct my symptoms and how to manage my recovery. He was very patient and answered all my questions and told me that I would hear from him shortly with an appointment for a follow up consultation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Smith to any of my friends or family needing to see a cardiologist.

    Dr Smith has been looking after me and I appreciate his style of going slowly and step by step to find out what exactly is wrong with me. He has spent time explaining it to me and even though I find it slightly over whelming I do have total confidence in him.
