As always Dr Sunthar is very professional and courteous. I am always pleased with his explanations and diagnosis. He makes you feel very safe in his hands.
Dr Kanaganayagam was extremely professional. He was approachable and listened and explained use of investigations and the findings thereafter. His presence and monitoring of cardiac investigations offered reassurance. I was impressed about his knowledge and approach to investigating cardiac symptoms. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Kanaganayagam to others.

I appreciated the helpful post-consultation assistance he also provided. Overall, I was very impressed by his whole approach to the issue.
Frank and honest explanations, really appreciate.
Dr Sunthar has been absolutely excellent. Thorough and considered. I sent him some previous reports from another Cardiologist and he had read these thoroughly before my consultation. He and his staff always react quickly to any queries. He is a quiet, calm and peaceful Consultant who gives you time and is reassuring.
