Most heart conditions can be managed medically. Where invasive or interventional treatment is required, these will usually be performed personally by your Cardiologist at a local hospital.

  • On Saturday, at very short notice, I was booked in for a Bruce Protocol ECG as part of an employment requirement.

    From the receptionist to the doctor, Dr Budeck and his assisting nurse, the service was absolutely first class.

    Efficient, friendly and professional. Well done WK Cardiology and refreshing to experience in these days where customer service is sometimes neglected and is of no importance.

    You are the exception, thank you.

    Captain Chris Angelis

  • I am a local GP and partner of 2 practices with over 13,000 patients.

    Over many years, I have appreciated the care given to my patients by West Kent Cardiology and they remain my recommendation when discussing options with my patients.

    I would not hesitate to recommend all the cardiologists here. It is particularly important that patients know that if their cardiologist is not available, they will still be cared for to the highest standard.

    Dr Alison Fyfe

  • My experience at the hands of West Kent Cardiology was diagnosis with promptitude, professional clarity and a route to recovery, all delivered with unfailing courtesy – a combination constituting a safeguard against considerable anxieties.

    Sir David Phillips

  • I was recommended to use West Kent Cardiology Practice a few years ago by my medical insurers (which in itself was a thumbs up!) and was found to need a stent. The whole process was handled quickly and efficiently by the practice.

    I have since been attending every year for monitoring and made to feel as if I am the only patient that they have to concern themselves about. The staff and Dr Lawson are so very easy to talk to and allay any fears that I have.
