“Dr Wright helped me understand the procedure that was required to rectify my condition and answered all my questions, and even some I hadn't thought of. During my hospital visit for the procedure he and his team were very reassuring, even the lighthearted welcome to the theater was encouraging. Aftercare was brilliant too.“

    From the initial consultation, interim communications and to the actual Ablation procedure itself, Gary was superb. He conveyed the details with absolute professionalism in a manner you could understand, showing real empathy and immediately building a relationship where you knew you were in expert hands. Confidence is key in health matters and I cannot recommend Gary highly enough.

    From my initial consultation with Dr Wright I knew I was in safe hands. He was extremely professional with a personable manner and quickly put me at ease. Recently I was an inpatient having an ablation for afib and developed a few complications. Dr Wright was calm and reassuring throughout and quickly had things under control. The entire team were fantastic. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Dr Wright and feel so blessed to have received such a high standard of care.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Doctor Wright was exactly what I was looking for and needed in an expert - Personable, professional and simple explanations without condescension. I never felt hurried or a distraction. Dr Wright was fully engaged and focused on me and my situation and answered with care all the (many) questions that my wife asked (on my behalf). This all took place after 6pm and a full work day on Dr Wright's part. I would without reservation, highly recommend Dr Wright to anyone.
