On behalf of my wife and myself, we wish to offer Dr Fox our grateful thanks for his 'restoration' with the pacemaker fitment and subsequent 'retune'. The results of his expertise have been excellent. After so many hospital visits with really no feedback on positive results - to get an instant diagnosis and positive information from Dr Fox was a revelation. It is a great pity that we had not known about him sooner!

Words cannot express how thankful I am for everything that Dr Fox has done. He has given me my life back. Before the procedures I could only have walked between 300-500 steps. Now I do an average of 8,000 -12,000 plus a day!. My life has changed so much from having the flutter ablation , I am back enjoying my sleep and gradening etc. I can now get on with my life and it has even helped me loose a stone in weight. Thank you so much Dr Fox.

I find Dr Fox's combination of affability and to-the-point professionalism very commendable. He engages with me fully, is a good listener and asks appropriate questions, proffering information that I - as a non-medical person - can understand, thus making me feel at ease.

I found Dr Fox to be very professional and thorough. My previous specialist retired and I came new to him. He made sure that he covered every aspect of my care and even liaised with the ENT consultant who was also treating me. I would wholeheartedly recommend him.

From my very first appointment with Dr David Fox he made me feel at ease after explaining all avenues of treatment that I could receive. I have every confidence and trust in Dr David Fox. I cannot thank him enough for such a successful outcome following my treatment. His direct, honest and down to earth approach is very much appreciated and reassuring. He says it as it is, so you can completely understand what is in store. Not only is he clearly an exceptional consultant in the field of cardiology and electrophysiology but has the ability to talk to you and listen to you, not at you. He has his patients interests at heart both before, during and after the ablation procedure and is genuinely interested in your well being months after by offering support or reassurance if required. Dr David Fox is not only a superb gentleman but a gifted professional consultant of the highest order. I and the rest of my family cannot thank him enough for giving me such a better quality of life. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr David Fox to anyone suffering from atrial fibrillation.
