    Dr Levy is very caring and a good listener. He carefully reviews recent medical history , takes appropriate measurements, and summarises the results and any actions . He then provides a written summary for me and my GP. I feel very well protected and cared for. He can’t be faulted!

    Dr Levy is extremely experienced and respected and this showed through in his manner when discussing my case. He listened fully to all that I said, responded fully to all questions, explained his diagnosis fully and ensured that I understood the implications of that diagnosis provided to me. I cannot recommend him highly enough on cardiac matters generally.
