    I first met the delightful Dr Rizvi 20 years ago when I was rushed into Watford General hospital with a failing heart. I was taken straight into ICU where he performed Cardio Version on me successfully. Since then, he has helped and guided me through many heart, lungs and various chronic illnesses. Nothing is too much for him. He always acts fast and efficiently with the most wonderful calm manner. As an inpatient, no matter how busy he is, he makes it his duty to pop in and see me daily, be it nhs or private healthcare. He is an absolute medical treasure, and I don’t know what myself and my family would do without him.
