    Dr Westwood was clearly very knowledgeable about my issues and made me feel very comfortable. He made it clear that any test would not be an issue. Considering the restrictions with COVID-19 he was very kind enough to allow my husband into the consultation room too. I would highly recommend him as a cardiologist.
