    Prof Carr-White has been extraordinarily thorough. He has kept me and my husband well for the last 10 years and he has been so very helpful in so many ways. There is no doubt he has saved my husbands life - it took someone very good, such as Prof to see my husband's need so early and save him from cardiac failure. My family is so very grateful for his treatment, care and expertise.
