    I felt i was in the hands of a very competent professional which put my mind at ease. Pre-procedure discussion was very thorough and everything well explained including reference to resources to help me understand the 3D mapping and ablation process. His visit post-op was welcome including showing me the video mapping images of the problem area of my heart. Sincere thanks Dr Arunjana.

    He carried out my procedure with total professionalism. He explained what was about to be done. It went very well and he ensured that I was well whilst in recovery. Very good indeed. At my follow up appointment he explained exactly what he had performed in the procedure. I couldn't have wished for anything better.

    Explanation (5/5)
    Dr Arujuna spent some time explaining my options for my SVT during out first consultation, ensure that I understood the options and any associated risks. He also explained his preferred procedure and why he believed this was my best option. I was made to feel completely comfortable with the procedure and how it would work. During the procedure (catheter ablation) Dr Arujuna addressed me by my first name and I felt very at ease and confident with our conversations.
