    Dr Adhya gave a clear overview and appraisal of my condition. I have a good understanding now of what my medications are; and have had treatment plan developed to improve my health. This is all complicated around having to operate remotely also, due to the issues surrounding COVID 19. I have had written feedback in a timely manner and have had the reassurance of Dr Adhya answering questions if required.

    I found Dr Shaumik a man that listened to all my problems and made me feel that finally I was getting someone that actually was going to positively help me. Since my visit he has kept in touch and that has really reassured me since the health service at this particular time (Covid-19) pandemic is overwhelmed and not available to answer my concerning questions when needed. This very pleasant young man has made a big difference to my wellbeing and I am extremely thankful.

    Dr Adhya has a very pleasant, unhurried manner. He was thorough in taking my (complicated!) medical history and discussing treatment options. He gave me plenty of time to ask questions and his answers were reassuring. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others seeking a cardiologist.

    Unfortunately not the outcome I wanted because I did not have my ECG's from Gran Canaria so he could not treat or help me until he can review the ECG's which I am at the moment trying to get. I had a very frightening experience with the Tachycardia and I just feel I need some answers and hope he will be able to help me in the near future and by the way the consultant fees are quite high for a first appointment with no outcome.

    I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Please do get in touch when you get the ECG's or let me know if you can't get them so we can work out the best way forward to help you. I've now set up a free Skype clinic with short appointments if you wanted to use that service.
