    I had a consultation with Dr Paul Scott yesterday as I wanted some peace of mind. Having suffered with AF for three years now, he explained the process of trying to get me back on my feet again in a very understanding and pleasant way. I liked his manor and felt very comfortable indeed. I have come away with total faith in his abilities and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
