    I have seen Dr Chowdhary twice now, and will be having a third consultation at the bet of July - I had originally been scheduled for a heart by pass, but this was postponed due to coronavirus. I saw Dr Chowdhary after a recommendation by a friend. He was very pleasant and relaxed, and asked me for details of my symptoms, and he also carried out a number of tests. His manner at all times was very pleasant, and I asked him if I could possibly stay on tablets rather than have the operation. He advised me that he would meet with my surgeon and review everything with him. A few weeks later he contacted me and arranged a further meeting, where he advised me that bit was a borderline case, and I could choose either route. I decided to stay with the tablets, and after a couple of adjustments to the dosage I have been much better. Dr Chowdhary makes you fell relaxed and confident and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

    It was lovely to meet Dr Chowdhary he made me feel very at ease with things. Anything heart related is a worry but his calm manner and detailed, yet understandable, explanations really put my mind at rest. I have further scans recommended but with the knowledge that Dr Chowdhary will be reviewing them has made the whole prosses a lot easier.
