“I have visited Doctor Lo Monaco for a thorough heart check as he came highly recommended by one of his colleagues. Doctor Lo Monaco soon put me at ease and reassured me about my condition on an inverted T. His visit was very exhaustive and he provided advice for the future. He patiently listened to all my concerns and carefully addressed any issues as well as deciding the comprehensive checks to be carried out. At the end of all the checks Doctor Lo Monaco provided a very comprehensive feedback on all the results explaining them in details. Doctor Lo Monaco is very professional, competent with excellent bedside manners and I highly recommend him. I would not hesitate to visit him again in the future should I need it.“
