    Dr Shankar put us at ease from the minute we spoke to him right the way through to our consultation. He also accommodated a consultation quickly which was a huge relief given we needed heart tests done for my son to rule out any serious issues Dr Shankar was brilliant with Harry, his manner was wonderful and had Harry relaxed from start to finish. One of the best bed side manners I have ever seen with a Dr. Thanks so much for everything, you really put us all at ease :)

    Dr. Sridharan has been absolutely amazing. He has been extremely responsive and thorough in reviewing our son. He called us on the weekend to review the situation and arranged for tests very quickly. When we went in for the tests, he explained them and what he was looking for in detail as well as the results. I would highly recommend him and really appreciate the time he has taken with us.

    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.

    From the first moment we spoke on the phone to make the appointment, we had everything fully explained and felt totally at ease. The appointment itself was great and Dr Srigharan was extremely reassuring and explained everything well, whilst making our son feel at ease.

    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
