Dr Savvatis has always made himself available to patiently read and respond to emails in a clear and concise way and has never moaned or made me feel uncomfortable about me bothering him with my concerns

He is a superb cardiologist , very kind and considerate with a friendly and very professional manner , he knows exactly how to deal with a nervous person like me , I value his advice and support , and would recommend him without any hesitation whatsoever . He is always available to answer queries and points of concern , and I would not wish to be taken care of by anyone else , I owe him a great debt of thanks for his advice to date .

    I found Dr Savvatis to have an amazing clinical understanding and interpretation of my disease, ( Dilated Cardiomyopathy ). He has an amazing understanding of my heart issue, on a clinical level, but yet was able to explain to me as a non medical person my issues and give me a total understanding of my condition and how to live with it safely. Dr. Savatis was able to relieve my stress and give me the confidence to live a reasonable life if I followed his guidance, while always having the time and energy to explain my updated diagnosis to me and always having the time to answer my questions , even though I knew how busy he was in the hospital. I found Dr. Savvatis to be a true professional with an amazing dept of knowledge and I truly believe I am alive today because of his guidance, advice and medical knowledge.

    Chest Pain
    Dr Savvatis is a very competent, kind, honest, efficient and compassionate doctor. He listens carefully and makes sure to look at every aspect of the patient's problem, one can feel his wish to really help the patient. He is very fast in responding emails, I find it very special that there is a direct communication with the doctor and not via his secretary. Another point that makes him stand out is his international experience and his multi-lingual skills. It was such a relief for me to be able to explain my condition in my mother tongue language- German. I am wishing Dr Savvatis all the best and will contact him again if need be and recommend him to friends/ family members.
