    It was well worth waiting the extra time to see Dr Petkar. He was very pleasant, caring and understanding my health situation. He had time to discuss as well as listen to what I was telling him regarding my previous treatment on the NHS where the hospital discharged me leaving me just in the care of my own GP with no forward plan. I am now awaiting an Echocardiogram and a 7 day heart tape to be fitted to further check my heart.
