    I saw Doctor Fazal as a private patient for fluid overload relating to AF which he promptly and successfully treated. He was very thorough going through my AF history and gave me some good advice on how to proceed with up-coming operations and even after I had finished seeing him as a patient he called me in his own time to check on how my up-coming procedures were progressing. I can not recommend him highly enough.

    Dr Fazal was always cordial and accommodating. He saw me and treated me very promptly, especially when I was waiting for hip surgery and it was discovered I was in Atrial Fibrillation. He took time to explain my condition and treatment carefully. My consultations and treatment were carried out privately at The Spire Hospital, Nottingham.

    Dr Iftikhar was thorough in his assessment and explanations. He listened to all my concerns carefully and discussed enough details for me to be in peace of mind that my symptoms are not ignored, instead those were discussed, explained, and examined to the right levels. Very pleased with Dr's overall interaction.

He is a specialist in heart failure and device therapy (pacemakers, biventricular pacemakers for heart failure and defibrillators) with many years of experience in providing high quality care. I have a great deal of respect for Dr Fazal and am always impressed by how highly his patients speak of him."
