Where to start to express my gratitude to Mr Neil Roberts, cardiac surgeon and his team.From my very first meeting with him,feeling somewhat apprehensive at what was to come, his friendly manner to myself and my wife, put us immediately at ease. I was told i needed a triple by pass operation. Mr Roberts explained in great detail what was going to happen. He filled us with confidence and we came away knowing we were in the best of hands. From the very start, having all the tests done, to meeting Mr Robert's nurse Linda ,i was treated with great consideration and care. After the operation Mr Roberts came to see my family and explained exactly how everything had gone. He also visited me several times in the ward, to check on my progress. The doctors and nurses in the intensive care and recovery wards are a wonderful group of very special people. I would also like to say what a wonderful hospital Barts is and what fantastic work they do. I owe my life to Mr Robert's amazing skills and myself and my family will be forever grateful to him.

I recently had open heart surgery for a replacement aortic valve. Mr Roberts was the surgeon and from start to finish he did a fine job on me. I saw Mr Roberts before my operation and he explained the procedure to me clearly. He said I had kept my self fit so that at 81years he was confident that open heart surgery was the way to go as it would be more long lasting than other procedures After the operation I saw Mr Roberts twice as he followed my progress .he was very attentive along with his excellent team. After he organised various tests on me he declared me fit enough to go home after only 6days. I would like to thank Mr Roberts for his his excellent care on my behalf and the kind way he dealt with me and my wife. I cannot praise his work enough and he is clearly great credit to the NHS. Thankyou..Mr B Seekins

Mr Roberts explained everything in great detail to me and my family. He has a great team. I can never thank him enough firstly for giving me a new lease of life. Secondly keeping the family informed including emailing family in Australia to tell them. I had my surgery and was inrecovering in ICU. Above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you Mr Roberts and all the team.
Mr Roberts is a brilliant surgeon, in every way. He is an expert in his field (possibly a world leader) but just as importantly, he manages to combine cutting edge knowledge with real kindness and accessibility. When I first met Neil he spent 45 minutes talking to my partner and me. He was keen to hear "my story" as he refers to it, in my own words. He believes in diagnosis via the symptoms just as much as from all the tests and "pictures" he had been provided with. And no question from me was too trivial for him. I arrived for the appointment with some obvious trepidation about the probably upcoming surgery, and left feeling relaxed and confident to be in his hands. And that confidence was born out throughout the open heart surgery that I then had (replacement of a swollen aortic root and damaged valve.) Neil Roberts and his team could not have done more, or delivered a better service. It is a credit to him, how good the team are around him. My wound is neat, and five weeks later was completely healed. Now six weeks in, I am set for a complete and full recovery. During the five nights I was in hospital I saw Neil 3 times and his registrar probably another 3. If you have to have heart surgery, these are the people you want around you. If you are an NHS patient (as I was) ask for Mr Roberts. If you are a private patient, choose Mr Roberts. He's your man! Job done.
