Patients comments

Chris Malkin listened well, responded professionally and was a very clear communicator. The reception staff initially ignored me and the communication was a little awkward. After this initial glitch everything went smoothly.

From, confirmation phone call, pre op tests, TAVI procedure to home 10 days. 7 weeks later, post op echocardiogram & discharge chat with Dr Malkin. I’m now walking daily for over 30 mins. The TAVI journey with Dr Malkin & his team, was a great success
