    Very positive experience meeting Prof. Ruparelia recently to consult him about my irregular heartbeat and breathlessness. He is very kind, thorough and immediately put me at ease. He patiently answered all my questions, explained things very carefully and (and capped with some good news), I already felt relieved leaving his clinic. Always a good thing not to have to see a doctor, but should you need to see a cardiologist, I highly recommend Prof. Ruparelia.

    My cardiologist referred me to Professor Ruparelia for an exploratory angiogram and I found him to be an excellent communicator, who inspires confidence and thoroughly professional throughout. There's something reassuring about all that when you're having a heart investigation.
