    Dr Bellamy is a very personable physician, whose calm demeanour understates his depth and breadth of both knowledge and skill. His expertise and balanced judgement is often called upon by other expert colleagues in multi-disciplinary meetings. He is a pleasure to work with for the many years that I have and has always had great feedback from patients. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

    Mike is an excellent cardiologist and excels in echocardiography and coronary intervention. He is particularly skilled in the assessment of valvular heart disease and the percutaneous edge to edge repair of mitral regurgitation. He is the sort of physician I would recommend to my family.
