    I have worked with Mr Sabetai for many many years and have been impressed by his professionalism and expertise. He sub-specialises in aortic and aortic valve conditions and in addition provides the full width of cardiac surgery services such as bypass operations etc. I have referred many patients privately and on the NHS and have yet to come across a single one complaining about him - en contraire - he is well liked, respected and patient feed-back has been very positive. It is therefore very easy for me to unreservedly recommend Mr Sabetai as a skilful and excellent cardiac surgeon.
