    Dr Scott is a pleasant and approachable professional. His explanations of the options open to me were concise and clear. The consultations I had with Dr Scott left no lingering thoughts or worries. I would have no hesitation to consult with Dr Scott in the future, if the need arises, or to recommend him. Thank you Paul for the reassurance.

    Very personable and organised. Listened and confirmed understanding. I was very worried that I had been referred because of an abnormal ECG. He put my mind at rest that there was not enough info in the ECG to confirm a diagnosis, but that he would recommend certain tests to ascertain cause. He explained the purpose of the tests and what evidence they would provide in order to make a diagnosis. I didn't feel rushed and at all times felt fully engaged. After the tests were conducted (one of which took a little time to schedule) he called me at the time scheduled and clearly articulated the findings. He was at pains to explain how his proposed treatment was evidence based and proportionate to the examinations and tests carried out. He got in touch with my MD very quickly and I'm now on a course of treatment to reduce the risk of heart attack.
