“From my initial diagnosis of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation right up to the 6 week post operation check-up (with a very positive outcome), I have nothing but the utmost of praise for the journey I went on with Dr Kabunga. His extraordinary experience and bedside manner allowed me to have all of my questions answered and filled me with the confidence I needed to have a cryo balloon ablation. His ability to put me at ease through a very difficult period of my life is something I will never forget. I can’t recommend him enough. He literally changed my life. “

    My mum has recently undergone pacemaker surgery with Dr Kabunga. It is not an exaggeration to say he has given her a new lease of life. She was barely able to breathe before this surgery and is now improving every day. Dr Kabunga met her assessed her and realised immediately her old pacemaker was not working adequately. The whole process has been seamless and everyone has been absolutely amazing as well as kind to her. Dr Kabunga you are a genius and we can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us.

    Explanation (5/5)
    I was referred to Peter Kubunga from a heart Consultant who had scared the living daylights out of me, with a future scenario of an abrupt end, unless i sought immediate medical attention. Peter Kubunga was on holiday when i contacted his office in panic and within several hours, he contacted me at home after having my heart monitor results, sent to his mobile, assured me that life was going to go on and all was to be well. Peter fitted a pace maker to me some 3 weeks later and my whole life has changed, he is a wonderful surgeon, but above that, a very empathic and caring Doctor. You can literally trust him with your life. I do.

    Dr Kabunga is an EXPERT in his field. My consultation with him was a wonderful and warm experience from start to finish. He took his time to explain the diagnosis in a very clear manner. He combines expertise and a willingness to listen and discuss in such a friendly and professional manner. It’s rare to find a doctor that combines such personal touches and care for a patient as a person with outstanding quality of medical care. From his excellent treatment, investigative mind and ability to connect, you know where you stand immediately and what next steps look like. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Kabunga.
