    What can i say about this man. There are no enough words to give this successful Surgeon his right value. From the 1st day Mr Kolvekar came to see my father before the surgery till today (2 months) after the surgery he didn't stop following up by texting and calling at all. He listens. He explains. He gives time. He makes everything simple and easy to understand. He knows what he is talking about and he was right in everything he told us. He is so patience with the family questions. And the most important thing is that he is always available. We thank God for sending Mr Kolvekar on that day to be the one who gonna operate on my father. I must mention here Mr Kolvekar's PA Joe as well, he is very helpful always there with answers. All the respect

    Mr Kolvekar, A million thanks for all you have done for me over the past short while. I deeply appreciate it. You have given me my life and it was so good that you transferred me to Barts instead of going home on Friday. I feel so much better now. You will be forever in my prayers and that is a true promise. God bless you and your wife and family.

    Today is my 16th day at home after my discharge from Barts. cardiac centre. My Operation was on the 6ht of August. I am now making a steady recovery after the aortic valve replacement. Managing my time post operation was good due to supportive information and knowledge. I am so grateful. Thank you very much to you for all the outstandingly good treatment I have been fortunate to receive. With best wishes.
