Dr.Neil is one of the best doctors, I've ever seen . He handles the situation patiently and quickly. I was admitted in Royal Berkshire hospital for 100% blockage on LAD (aka widowmaker heart attack) . As soon as the ambulance arrived, Dr Neil explained me the situation and straightway moved to CCU, In less than 25 minutes, he diagnosed the blockage using angiogram and inserted a stent. I was listening to him throughout the procedure and felt the confidence that he is capable enough to save my life. He was so professional and calm throughout the procedure.

I had an excellent experience with Dr Ruparelia. I needed an operation to plug a hole in my heart. Dr Ruparelia explained the procedure and my options very clearly and calmly. He allowed me time to consider my options. He also carried out tests and explained the findings. Before, during and after the operation my care was excellent and I felt most confident and comfortable. I was able to leave hospital the next day and have felt extremely well ever since. My levels of energy have improved considerably. I am very grateful and pleased with the care I received. Dr Ruparelia is very professional, kind, informed, enthusiastic and experienced I felt extremely safe in his hands.

Dear Dr Ruparelia, I am writing to thank you so much for the excellent work and care you gave me throughout my hole in the heart procedure, at the Wellington hospital in London in March. I was very impressed not only with your attention to details but your effort in explaining to e fully what was going to happen and why, In addition, your enthusiasm for your work and interest in making sure I was well cared for made me feel very comfortable, reassured and confident that all would go well. Clearly it did as I felt no need to "take it easy" for a few days after the operation! In fact the operation was such a success my levels of energy immediately increased and I have felt very well ever since. Thank you so much for your excellent care and cheerful attitude, also your professionalism and expertise. I feel very lucky to have been one of your patients.

We were delighted with our meeting with Dr Ruparelia. He was impressively well prepared, very thorough in his assessments, most positive in his recommendations and so kind with regards to ongoing management. We were also very please with his personal assistant's prompt reply even on a Sunday evening and the offer of an early appointment.

In an age when knocking the NHS appears to have become a national sport, I thought that I would take the time to write to you to tell you how impressed I was with how I was treated at my recent Cardiology Outpatients appointment at WBCH. I was seen in the clinic by Dr Neil Ruparelia who was extremely thorough in his explanation of the results of my most recent MRI scan. He also took the time to most professional in his responses. I came away from my appointment feeling like I had listened to an treated with intelligence and respect. I was impressed that he insisted on dictating my letter in my presence so that, if I had any queries, they could be addressed immediately. Dr Ruparelia is a credit to your existing team. To date, I cannot fault the care, for which I am grateful, that I have reveived from every member of the Cardiology team at the RBH, WBCH & ar Spire Dunedin. I should also like to say how much I, and many other people that I know, value the services provided by WBCH. It is so much more convenient to those of us living to the west of Reading to be able to attend our outpatients appointments there rather than have to visit the RBH and the nurses and admin staff there are always so helpful as are all your staff at the RBH
