    Dr Lloyd was extremely friendly and explained everything related to my condition clearly and in terms I could understand. I had a stress echo performed by Dr Lloyd, which was carried out on the day of a consultation and the whole process was conducted in a calm and extremely professional manner - just what you need when you are anxious to learn the results of the test. I would highly recommend The Cardiac Clinic and in particular Dr Lloyd and his team.
