“Dr Chow’s manner put me at ease. He explained everything very clearly and gave the opportunity to ask questions. Although he was clearly busy, he gave us the time needed and we didn’t feel hurried. Following the consultation I had complete confidence to put myself into his care and move forward with the procedure. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Chow. “

    Explanation (5/5)
    I was admitted under the care of Dr Chow at the Wellington Hospital for a VT ablation after suffering a "VT storm". He went out of his way to oversee my treatment from my admission to my release four days later. He is clearly a leading expert in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. His experience and bedside manner reassured me that I could not be in better hands. Despite the complexity of my condition - I was born with a VSD - the ablation was very successful. I could not recommend him more highly.

    Explanation (5/5)
    Dr. Chow has been most professional and helpful throughout the whole processes from consultation to the actual procedure. During the consultation he explained very fluently the issue and the procedure, and answered all of my questions. On the day of the procedure, dr. Chow ensured that I understand what will be happening during the procedure. I appreciated dr. Chow's visit to the recover room to inform me that the procedure was successful and to check on my recovery. I would recommend his services to everyone.
