    It’s hard to imagine a better level of care from both Dr Guttmann and also his assistant Marian. Fantastic I specifically would like to call out the quality of the care, team work, efficiency and professionalism at my recent angiogram at the Wellington - in the Cath lab. 8 professionals in the room, all seemed to know exactly what each other was doing, I felt safe and communication was clear - despite it being c9pm on a Tuesday. There was all this efficiency but the team seemed happy to be there and enjoying their work/having fun. The facilities were also were (see my heart live on massive screen). I build teams for a living as part of my work, and I know that’s not easy to do - particularly when you have someone’s life in your hands. If that wasn’t world class care I’m not sure what it’s. Thank you Dr Guttmann (and Marian) for scheduling it quickly/fitting it in to help Move diagnosis on.

    From the get go Dr Guttmann was extremely kind and attentive to my condition which was really helpful considering I was very anxious and confused. He immediately explained the process of tests to me, what they would be looking for and what the likelihood was of finding anything, calming me down straight away. And when my tests all came back good, he was probably more enthusiastic than me and had some great advice on my further treatment options. Overall, it has been a really good experience with Dr Guttmann and I would highly recommend him to anyone else looking for a good cardiologist.

    I needed a timely consultation and subsequent tests after an issue at work. Dr Guttmann and the team were fantastic. Their whole approach was helpful, speedy and efficient. Everything was well explained and I left feeling reassured and calmer. I have already recommended Dr Guttmann to my work colleagues.
