In November 2017 I suffered a cardiac arrest and was admitted to Wythenshawe Hospital where Dr Saqib Chowdhary performed an emergency procedure to insert a stent in a narrowed artery. The procedure was extremely successful and I am now enjoying good health and exercising regularly. The follow up consultations have proved to be very reassuring and I have total confidence in Dr Chowdhary's expertise as a Consultant Cardiologist.

Dr. Chowdhary treated me for a heart attack in March 2018. This review is a little late but I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Chowdhary for saving my life. If it were not for his expertise, experience and skill I would not be here today. I have nothing but respect and admiration for all the medical profession but when it comes to specialising in the various fields of the human anatomy then Dr. Chowdhary is first class in the field of cardiology. I would recomend this doctor to anybody with problems within his field. He is also a thoroughly nice chap as well.

After visiting my local Cardiology Unit with chest pains and shortness of breath I decided to see Mr Chowdhary to speed up the diagnostic process. The appointment came through within one week during which Mr Chowdhary carefully assessed all my previous notes, performed a number of tests including ECG and then explained to me very clearly the possibilities from my symptoms and the results of the test. Mr Chowdhary recommended an Angiogram with the potential of an Angioplasty to be carried out during the same procedure, he also changed my medication which relieved my symptoms within a few days. We did the Angiogram with 3 weeks which was a very quick and painless procedure with no after effects. Unfortunately the results meant that I will need a heart bypass but I gained huge relief from knowing my condition giving me the opportunity to manage it better. My overall experience was excellent, Mr Chowdhary is not only an expert in his field but also has very good interpersonal skills. I would certainly recommend Mr Chowdhary to anyone experiencing the same symptoms as me.

I am 82 & have had heart problems since 1984,having bypass surgery in 1984 at Wythenshawe Hospital. Since when I have had 2 ops and numerous angiograms.When I became ill again & was referred to Dr S Chowdhary I did not have much hope of improvement.He took on my very difficult case, & was determined to remove my severe heart blockages.His explation of treatment has always been clear & easily understood,& his determination to help with a diifficult case is admirable. His expertise in performing two coplicated and lengthy angiograms plus angioplasty has left me with a good quality of life for which I am most grateful.I would reccomend him to any of my family or friends.

I referred myself to Dr Chowdhary after the NHS Consultant, who was previously treating my health issues, was unable to satisfactorily give me a clinical diagnosis of my condition. Dr Chowdhary comes across as a quiet unassuming Gentleman but has shown to be very tenacious with the tests requested and of the subsequent assessment of the results, in the depth of information given in his diagnosis and in the aftercare that has been, and continues to be, given. His fees, paying privately without the benefit of Private Health Insurance, are in line with other consultants charging for private service. In summary, Dr Chowdhary provides a high level of care and i feel very confident in his assessment, diagnosis and aftercare.

I have been in the care of Doctor Chowdhary for over ten years and throughout this time he has given me excellent and sympathetic treatment and understanding. During this time I have had two critical surgeries, performed by Dr. Chowdhary, and my continued improving health is exclusively down to the Doctor and his team. I am convinced that his advice and surgical excellence has extended my life and allowed me to have a positive outlook for the future.

I saw Dr Chowdhary with my daughter who had been refused entry on medical grounds to join the Navy - due to a heart murmur. We were under a very tight time schedule to have further investigations and medical confirmation she was fit and healthy. My daughter was feeling anxious and nervous due to this. Dr Chowdhary was fantastic from start to finish. He has a lovely manner. He put us both at ease and listened attentively to my daughter. He went above and beyond to ensure we had all the necessary information within days. Fortunately my daughter was passed as medically fit and is now able to attend her final interview for officer selection. I really can't thank him (and his secretary) enough and would highly recommend him. As a nurse myself I'm sure he is used to seeing much more complex problems but it was fantastic to get the same high standard of care and attention that I'm sure he gives to all his patients.

Dr Saqib Chowdhary

You are very welcome. I wish your daughter the best of luck with her Navy training.

I would highly recommend Dr Chowdhary. He listens carefully without rushing. He explains clearly and methodically what the problems are and he doesn’t like ‘loose ends’ so I know everything has been checked thoroughly and this together with his calm manner puts my mind at ease. His professionalism is above and beyond.
