    It is always scary going to a doctor with your son. Specially when they refer you to a cardiologist because you he has a murmur. Dr Sridharan made the experience great for our son and for us, he explained it all perfectly. I highly recommencd Dr Sridharan.

    Dr Sridharan was very thorough in asking my son about his condition and overall wellbeing at the same time as carrying out the various tests he was conducting. He was very personal, informative and suggested some great ideas for us to consider in helping my son's condition improve. Couldn't recommend Dr Sridharan highly enough

    Sam was treated with respect and care. Dr Sridharan engaged with Sam immediately and put him at ease, he accommodated Sam's individual needs brilliantly and adapted scans accordingly. A real pleasure to come to hospital today. Dr Sridharan explained everything he was doing and why and was clear as to what he thinks has happened.
