    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.
