    Dr Lo Monaco has been extremely helpful during a personal health crisis. From the very beginning he was very understanding and willing to help, listening patiently and giving useful initial advice. In person he was very professional and thorough. The quality I appreciated the most was his ability to communicate in simple terms the diagnosis and therapy to follow. He got to the root of the problem without leaving anything un-investigated. This made me feel reinsured and in safe hands. Thank to him I was able to recover and now I feel I have a strong point of reference for my health. Thank you Doctor.

    I found Dr Lo Monaco to be an extremely experienced, professional and knowledgeable Cardiologist. The care I received from him was first class from the moment I walked through the door. I went into the consultation extremely anxious and left with a big smile on my face. Dr Lo Monaco listened very carefully to all my concerns and instantly put my mind at ease with detailed advice and reassurance. Dr Lo Monaco cares very much about his patients and puts them at the centre of his attention and is always on hand to answer any questions. I feel very fortunate to have been treated by such an excellent Cardiologist. I would highly recommend Dr Lo Monaco.

    I greatly appreciated Dr Lo Monaco quick response to my request of an appointment during the pandemic. He was very professional and very efficient in organising the appropriate investigations to reach a diagnosis. He was kind and sympathetic during the interview and physical examination. His quick intervention was very helpful in reducing the anxiety in the whole family.

    After two years of attending hospital appointments, with little explanation or help with a diagnosis, Dr Francesco Lo Monaco took the time to make me feel someone at last was taking a genuine interest in me. Despite the limitations of being in lockdown, Dr Lo Monaco took the time to arrange and ECG test kit to be sent to me by courier and collected after 7 days, all very easy for me. He took the time over several personal telephone conversations to initially listen to my history, having reviewed all my medical records, and then post ECG test, to go over my results and his suggestions in great detail. He took the time to explain everything and to make several suggestions. This was the first time I felt I was being listened to for many years regarding my condition and someone understood and genuinely wanted to help. I felt at ease throughout the whole process and very confident I was in good hands.
