“I can't say enough positive about Dr. Sen. He treated me with care and compassion from my first appointment, insisted on necessary tests that the NHS did not, and quickly discovered blockages and scheduled my angioplasty. His management of the operating theater during my procedure was equally impressive. While performing the surgery, Dr. Sen never lost sight of the human being on his table, ensuring I was comfortable and prepared for each step of the process helping to ease my worries. Truly aces.“

    It gives me enormous pleasure to write about my experience of being treated by Dr Sayan Sen. A medical consultant myself I can see so well and appreciate so highly his professional attitude, acumen and the breadth of the well thought through experience. He enhances, extends, saves life - secures the greatest, most precious gift of health with what feels a lightest of touch and with an immense and touching personal and professional generosity and modesty. 'Though he treats the heart, he does leave mark on the soul as well - a most memorable experience and the one I shall ever recall with my greatest gratitude. Thank you, Dr Sen - God bless.

    Amazing guy, very relaxed and knows his stuff. My condition was sudden and he re-assured me all the way through my operation. His mannerism and approach made me less nervous throughout the whole process.

    Dr Sen provided a clear and concise plan for the symptoms I was showing. Within a week of my first consultation, I had scans organised and received the results. From there the following working day (Fri – Mon) I was scheduled for an angiogram which included Covid-19 swabs before the surgery. Dr Sen explained what the procedure would be and what were the outcomes. In my case, it was decided to stop and transfer for a different procedure for the best long-term outcome. I was able to speak to both Dr Sen and the other consultant post the op. Post transferring my care to another consultant, Dr Sen continued to be involved is the next stages of my journey and was there on the day I was discharged from the ward to check in on me. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Sen’s ability to convey medical terminology and the potential outcomes along with his calm manner to a non-medical person, put me at ease. The way he conducted himself throughout the whole time during and post transfer too, I felt in totally safe in his care.

    He was expert at his job, and was cheery, yet very clear and honest throughout the procedure, and the entire process. I would recommend him to others - for somewhat obvious reasons, I hope not to see him (professionally) again!
