Dr. Garg went out of his way to be helpful and in arranging an appointment to see him for the first time at his clinic for the following day and to arrange for ECT and then a heart scan. He explained things very clearly indeed and showed compassion to my situation. Over the Bank holiday weekend, he called me to bring the date forward and I am most grateful to him for this and what he has done for me to date. It was his Bank Holiday also but that did not stop him from caring about others such as myself. I thank him most sincerely.

My previous cardiologist has retired and this was my first consultation with / treatment by Dr Garg. His diagnosis was spot on and the suggested procedure was well organised and went well on the day it was supposed too. I was kept fully informed by email in between - including copies of all letters to my GP and other medical professionals, not something many can be bothered to do! Dr Garg personally brought the surgeon responsible for the next steps / procedures to see me and ensured a proper handover etc. My five star score all round was well deserved.
