“Extraordinarily prompt consultation. Very approachable manner and excellent at explaining what an MRI scan would involve and what it could detect. Listened to my problems and concerns, and made me feel confident in his judgment. Very efficient service and scan at One Welbeck and then excellent follow up consultation from Dr Westwood where he again went out of his way to explain what had or had not been seen and what it meant. Must also mention his medical secretary Michelle who was ultra efficient and very helpful throughout. Would have no hesitation recommending Dr Westwood.“

    Dr Mark Westwood is probably one of the best doctors I have come across. He is knowledgeable on his subject and more importantly gets to know his patients and genuinely cares about their wellbeing. He makes you feel at ease and takes thorough time to answer questions. He quickly arranged the appropriate tests and quickly fed back the results. An outstanding doctor and gentleman who is clearly one of the best in his field. I would also like to say his medical secretary Michelle is fantastic with fantastic communications and ensure all necessary arrangements are made quickly. Thank you !

    I had an excellent experience - I found Dr Westwood highly personable, explaining the process and later the results of investigations in plain English. He's clearly is passionate about his area of specialism and wants the best for his patients. Highly recommended.

    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.
