    I found Mr Lall to be extremely professional and very personable. He was very helpful in coordinating my transfer from the local hospital to St. Bartholomew's. He was very concise in his explanation of the open heart surgery procedure that I was scheduled to have. After speaking with him, I felt reassured that I was going to be in very good hands. He has a very down to earth manner and is genuinely empathetic with the patient.

    Mr Lall diagnosed , operated and led the team caring for my father after surgery . Before surgery , he was very caring in his manner, explained everything clearly to my father and listened to my father’s concerns . He provided all the answers to my many questions in a calm, friendly manner so that I had the information needed to reassure my mother about the procedures required . My family and I were extremely happy with the exceptionally high level of pre and post operative care. Mr Lall is an excellent surgeon and we are all extremely grateful for his hard work and genuine concern for my father many months and now three years later . Thank you Mr Lall and your whole amazing team .

Thank you Thank you Mr Lull from my wife, son, family and of course it goes without saying....me too🙏🙏😷

    From the moment I met him I knew I was in good hands. He took the time to explain the procedures involved in my valve replacement and double bypass. I trusted his expertise and was pleased with how soon I recovered because of the care and support from him and his, team.

    Mr Lall was highly recommended to me. I did completed my own research before my procedure. The care and compassion I received by Mr Lall and his team was excellent. My procedure was in June 2020 during lockdown, from the Anaesthetist to cardiologist his team answered all my concerns. I would not hesitate in recommending Mr Lall

    Met Dr Lall once I was admitted to hospital. He was very approachable and I felt very comfortable in his presence. He clearly explained the procedure and answered my questions. Been back to see him afterwards and he reassured me that everything went to plan.

    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN I cannot speak highly enough regarding my experiences I have had with Mr Lall not only as a surgeon but as a human being.Prior to the operation he always had time for my questions and concerns acting not only in a professional manner but making me feel I was his only patient repeating that if i had any worries at all he was always there for me The surgery itself as far as i am concerned and again so i understand from my consultant and nurses in the ward his skills were second to none. His after care and reviews after the operation were from a kind ,gentle and considerate human being and I would say his bedside manner was reassuring , Behind the scenes his private secretary Melanie Todd was always personable,kind and efficient and again made me feel at ease under the circumstances I think the above review above says it all..My experience I have had with Mr Lall and his team was more than superb and I will be forever grateful to him

    The surgery was carried out to the highest standard and the care and attention from the rest of the team was excellent. I was lucky enough to recover quickly and was taken off all medication 7 weeks after the operation.
