Dr Brull has a very kind and attentive manner. He studied all my diagnostic data carefully, and clearly gave a lot of thought to advising the best way forward for me individually (for example with respect to whether or not I should start taking statins) rather than simply churning out a prescription according to generalised guidelines. I found the consultation most reassuring, and would have the utmost confidence in going to see him again if ever the need arises.

Dr Brull has guided me through the various heart health problems from which I have suffered over the past 5 yearscor so. This includes the introduction of a pacemaker by a third party , the diagnosis and treatment of Atrial Fibrillation under the NHS and the recognition of the need for an operation to replace my main Aortal valve. The latter was carried out impeccably at Barts Hospital which was the preferred theatre and surgeon selected by Dr Brull. I have always found him to be available and he consistently reports back to me and all necessary third parties following each consultation.

Dr David Brull has been my heart consultant for 9 years. From the very first time that I met him, he has been very helpful in allowing me to understand my medical condition, and the way in which I needed to proceed in order to alleviate the heart condition. This initially meant recommending a heart Surgeon to replace my aortic heart valve and subsequently monitoring my heart condition. My consultations with him have always been on time, and he has always exhibited great skill in explaining to me in simple terms what is going on and what medication I require. I consider myself very fortunate to have found such a caring doctor.
