Verified Reviews by patients and Consultant (Colleagues)

Verified Reviews by patients and Consultant (Colleagues)

Tests revealed I had significantly blocked arteries. Decided to go privately to Dr Kodoth and it turned out to be a brilliant decision. Dr Kodoth explained everything to me in such a way to make me at ease with what was needed. I required two procedures to have 4 stents. The follow up care from Dr Kodoth was exceptional. He was always available to answer any concerns, even calling me after procedures to ensure that everything was ok. I cannot praise him enough everything he has done for me and would highly recommend him to anyone requiring cardiac intervention. I also thank his entire team for their work during the procedures.

My husband was treated by Dr Kodoth at Bournemouth Hospital. From the first appointment to being discharged, the care and treatment received from him was exceptional. My husband was extremely fortunate to have him as his consultant. Communication with Dr Kodoth was excellent and he was always available to answer any questions we had. My husband required a pacemaker and a stent, as well as medication to control his Atrial Fibrillation, all of which have helped greatly to improve his quality of life. Thank you so much Dr Kodoth for everything, we are extremely grateful.
