A heartfelt thank you to Dr Lo Monaco for considerably improving my partner’s health, and above all his life expectancies, following a triple bypass and an unsatisfactory post-surgery follow-up experience with his previous consultant in a different hospital. Dr Lo Monaco has extensive medical knowledge and takes the time to clearly explain your options and possible outcomes. He cares about his patients both in his private practice as well as in his NHS one. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Dr Lo Monaco is an extremely knowledgable and meticulous clinician. He has been key to accurately diagnosing mum’s heart condition which in turn has ensured that the correct referrals have been made by the GP for surgical input. His communication has been brilliant as he was able to break down a serious diagnosis in a clear and reassuring way. Also I’m very grateful that Dr Lo Monaco is willing to go the extra mile. If you are looking for a trustworthy Cardiologist, I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Lo Monaco.

Fantastic Cardiologist with a natural ability to put the patient at ease. Even though Dr Lo Monaco was abroad working when I contacted him the fact that he rang me from China made me decide to proceed with him rather than find another cardiologist. He arranged all the necessary tests and was available whenever needed despite the time difference. I would highly recommend Dr Lo Monaco he is very respectful and takes time to listen and explain.

Such a great experience with Dr. Lo Monaco to date, on our first meeting he put my mind at rest with his warm and friendly manner. He ensured no stone was left unturned in diagnosing my symptoms and once diagnosed was always there to follow up, see how I was doing and swiftly take the next course of action. At each stage he took the time to carefully answer all of my questions, enabling me to feel completely at ease with the process. An excellent doctor, highly recommended.

Very rarely do you meet a Cardiologist who goes out of their way to help a loved one in their greatest time of need in the way that Dr Francesco Lo Monaco does. He is the epitome of medical excellence and kindness, and stands for everything a doctor should stand for: a servant to the public for whom no job is 'too big nor small'. Being an NHS doctor myself, I am obviously very picky about whom I would take my father to see regarding his cardiology issues. Obviously working on 'the inside' you have an idea of whom you may feel is the best person to cater for your family's health needs. I can honestly say, WITHOUT reservation, that Dr Francesco Lo Monaco is the best Cardiologist I can recommend for a loved one or a family member. His clinical knowledge is excellent and up to date, but most importantly he has learned a method to put elderly patients at ease with reassurance and understanding, as is the case with my father. You may struggle to find a nicer, more genuine and hard working Cardiologist in the UK! I hope you never have the need to consult a Cardiologist. But, if you do, let Dr Francesco Lo Monaco be the first person you see!

My whole experience with Dr Monaco was fantastic. He is a pure professional and knows his job best but the way he handled my consulting and all my appointments, especially follow ups as mother of two I sometimes used to forgot following up with the Dr, but he will always email me or contact me via mobile. Always kept me up to date with all the progress. Even when I got the abnormalities in my heart CT scan, the way he put across that news was amazing. He really helped me in explaining very small things to me and my husband which really helped us in understanding everything closely. Thank you so much Dr Monaco.

Praise where praise is due certainly rings true for Dr Lo Monaco. Dr Lo Monaco has been managing my Dad’s healthcare for many years, and recently I have become more involved in joining my Dad at his appointments to understand his treatment plan. Instantly I was impressed by Dr Lo Monaco’s behaviour. He is polite, respectful and welcoming. During consultation - he gives a full and clear account of past, present and future status reports. He also has a great way of ensuring patient understanding and we appreciate his ability to listen to our ideas, views and concerns. We do our best to keep healthy, however Dad’s health is not consistent so these appointments are a crucial and valuable part of his life. He is usually nervous going in - yet we are pleased to say that he is calmer afterwards, which is a consequence of how Dr Lo Monaco handles the consultation. My profession is in the field of leadership communications for private sector companies so I understand the importance of ensuring that the audience understands what they are being told. Trust is number one - especially when it comes to health matters. And I can truly say that Dr Lo Monaco has our trust, support and appreciation. This is why my family and I have the strength of feeling to share our experience with prospective patients and / or partners. We hope that this account highlights service excellence. And we hope that Dr Lo Monaco is used as a benchmark for the humanised approach during Dr / patient consultation. It is a pleasure giving this feedback.
