I was able to make the appointment for tests on Friday afternoon for a Monday morning consultation followed by the tests directly following the consultation. By 14:30 I had received a clear summary email from Dr Adhya with the results of the three tests together with confirmation that my results are normal. I am pressed for time due to some upcoming treatment so this urgency was gratefully appreciated. The consultation was thorough with family history being taken & we stepped through general health & MS-related symptoms in some detail also. Dr Adhya was clear in his questions & in his answers to my questions. Dr Adhya requested a chaperone for the consultation which was much appreciated. The appointment was not hurried and I felt that even had I thought of further questions after having left, that he would be happy to accommodate. Dr Adhiya is a personable senior consultant with exceptional people skills & a real sense of empathy with the patient. Most importantly, Dr Adhiya listened to me to understand more about what the context of my visit, what had prompted it and any tests which were needed. Dr Adhiya was very thorough with the explanation of the tests which were required. He was able to make these tests happen in a very short period of time and confirm the results in a clear and jargon-free manner. Truly appreciated.I would recommend Dr Adhya without hesitation and, should I need a cardiologist further down the line I will be happy to see Dr Adhya again.

I would start by saying how apprehensive I was which I guess is understandable when going to have a potential cardiac issue investigated. Dr Adhya was incredibly thorough and whilst there was no immediate or obvious signs of an issue still arranged for me to wear a 7 day ECG monitor to get a full and thorough picture of my heart rhythm and eliminate any concerns. His whole demeanour just gave me confidence and reassurance throughout which I was and indeed am incredibly grateful for. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Adhya to anyone who has cause to be seen by a cardiologist.

Dr Adhya was professional and friendly. I had two consultations with him, during both of which he discussed my condition, and gave his advice, clearly. He allowed me time to explain my own concerns, answered all my queries and talked over the possible future options with a welcome combination of understanding and common sense. I would not hesitate to go back to him for any follow up consultation or treatment. He was a jolly nice chap!

Dr Adhya has a great nature that makes you feel relaxed and cared for. He spent time explaining what are usually medical terms that the majority of us would not understand so that I fully understood. When you have an appointment where there could be a problem with your heart he is exactly the sort of Doctor you need.

Lovely consultant, listened to my somewhat lengthy medical history attentively and did not rush me out the door. He suggested some tests which I am currently undergoing. I found it very reassuring that Dr Adhya had an understanding of Hypermobility and I would definitely recommend him.

I will start with the easy part, Mr Adhya is exemplary. To contextualise that statement my introduction was a result of a serious cardiac even in South America (where I was treated very well, but in preparation for repatriation). On my return I consulted Mr Adhya as to treatment. I’m an exacting individual, a Military background in elite activities, a subsequently extreme exercise regime and a desire to remain at the same fitness level. At this time I was very concerned about my heart health because it determines everything I had ever achieved. Mr Adhya was professional yet personable, he was understanding whilst also being realistic. However above all else he provided the robust and realistic confidence in the procedure he would conduct to treat my condition. It is now two years on and I am more pleased, more humble and eternally grateful for the person I consider a friend rather than a life changing specialist. Thank you.

I went to see Dr Adhya for a second opinion regarding my chest pain, given my family heart and high cholesterol history. He listened to me very carefully , reviewed angiogram and previous test results. Also he recommended a number of tests before making any decision about my medications. This was very important for me. I would recommend Dr Adhya for his professionalism and approach.
