    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    I saw Dr Scott for a follow up after an ablation he carried out 3 months earlier. He was was on time, discussed how I had been and some problems that had occurred subsequent to the ablation. He discussed at length what my options were in the event my heart went out of sinus rhythm again and my future medication. He took time to explain all the positive and negative issues of a pacemaker should I need one and of the medication that I am on I have been under his care for a few years now and have total confidence in him and his expertise in the area of heart AFR
