    Dr Lowe has been helping my daughter with a tachycardia for many years. He is incredibly thorough and patient, and always makes the time to connect with us if we need to at short notice. He is understanding and thoughtful and we have been grateful for his care. He takes the time to make sure that she understands his diagnosis and recommendations rather than just talking to us, the parents.

    Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) Atrial Fibrillation Catheter Ablation
    I consulted Dr Martin Lowe for cardiac arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation(AF) which began several years ago. As well as being put on a course of medication, Dr Lowe performed a cardiac ablation to halt the AF. Throughout the whole process of consultation, treatment and follow up, Dr Lowe has been incredibly thorough, kind and professional. He has always taken the time to explain to me what the diagnosis meant, how it could be treated and what I could expect following the procedure and subsequent recovery. I have been able to contact him very easily through either his PA or directly through email and he has always been very quick in responding to any queries and concerns I have had. I have complete confidence in Dr Lowe and would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

    Dr Lowe treated my teenage daughter for SVT with a catheter ablation. The care she received throughout her treatment was excellent. She felt reassured and informed all the way through the process.

    I went to see Dr Lowe regarding episodes of AF a couple of years ago. He has an excellent manner - calm and reassuring - and he explained the options available to me in an extremely clear and helpful way. I underwent an ablation in June 2018, which he performed at a private clinic and I was delighted with the outcome. He has always made himself available for follow up conversations and has organised regular monitoring. I highly recommend him.

    Patient seen for:
    Atrial Fibrillation Catheter Ablation Cardioversion
    I was referred to Dr Lowe some three months ago following a diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation. I had a cardio version which, although successful, lasted only a few days so Dr Lowe talked me through the alternatives and performed an ablation some 8 weeks ago. Again although the procedure was a success it didn’t succeed in getting my heart back into sinus rhythm so Dr Lowe prescribed propafenone. I found the side effects difficult to cope with but Dr Lowe responded very quickly to my distress and prescribed amiodarone. He talked me through the need to be patient as the combination of the ablation and medication might not be successful for some time. I have a Kardia device on which I can record my ECG and email the result to Dr Lowe, who encouraged me to do this on a regular basis. Just over week ago my heart reverted to normal rhythm and although it was the holiday period, I was able to get a message through his extremely helpful secretary, from Dr Lowe with reassuring advice about managing my condition. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Lowe.

    I consulted Dr Martin Lowe with my young son for a second opinion on his heart problem, and was delighted with his excellent level of care. Everything was explained to us in a clear, concise way and we went ahead with investigations which were organised promptly, and when they were completed, we had a further consultation to discuss the results. The whole process was swift, painless and very reassuring. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
