At the beginning of June I felt the occasional pressure in my chest, after about a fortnight I went to my doctor who said he thought I had angina. On hearing this, combined with my family history I asked to be referred to a cardiologist. I had been recommended to see Dr Konrad Grosser at my local hospital. After my first consultation he arranged for me to have an ultrasound, cardiogram and a treadmill test, which showed that there was a problem. My theory had been that it was just stress and nothing physically wrong.
It was arranged for me to have an angiogram the following week. This showed that I would need a stent, possibly two. The following week I had one stent implanted and thankfully did not need the other. I found the whole episode, although quite frightening, was dealt with efficiently, quickly and most of all kindly with everything explained to me.

Dr Grosser is a calm, reassuring doctor who I would recommend to anyone who thinks they have a problem. As I said I thought it was just stress but if I had ignored the symptoms it would have given me a more serious outcome. Many thanks to Konrad for all that you have done for me.

I came under the care of Dr Grosser having been referred by another cardiologist, following my angiography. It was deemed that further investigations were needed in order to determine the correct line of treatment for my angina. I was seen promptly by Dr Grosser who carefully explained the nature of the investigations and their possible implications. He took time and was exceptionally skilled at communicating the facts to me and my wife and involving me in all the decision making. It was quite clear that he was fully familiar with the latest treatment research affecting my condition. During the procedures in theatre he worked as the leader of a team, which functioned very efficiently together in a considerate, kindly and reassuring way. Each stage in the procedure was explained to be beforehand. I had every confidence in him and his team.

In the spring of 2012 some chest discomfort indicated the possibility of deterioration in my heart condition following the fitting of a stent in 2000. After an initial consultation in March 2012 with the cardiologist involved in 2000, an angiogram was proposed but my insurance would not meet the cost at London Bridge Hospital and referred me to Dr Grosser.

Following an initial consultation a stress test was quickly arranged. The test showed no real cause for concern but based on the background and a concern over my wife’s future health it was agreed to proceed with an angiogram at William Harvey Hospital, the results of which led to a further investigation to see if stenting was an option. Unfortunately this proved not to be the case and I was given a triple heart by-pass on 12.07.12 at Kings College Hospital.

During the period of investigation I found Dr Grosser to be most efficient, informative and communicative (even to the extent of telephoning me at home while he was on holiday to apologise for a minor problem with appointment dates). He has a good sense of humour and had an excellent rapport with staff who were to assist while I was “on the table.”

Just a quick thank you for your thorough diagnosis and advice. My TIA and AFib were a major concern but I am now confident, following all the tests, medication and your guidance, that I can resume active life as normal. I am also grateful to your colleagues and staff at the QEQM Hospital, and particularly the Cardiac and Stroke units, for their prompt, professional and considerate care.

Yours Sincerely, Peter B

Nearly 40 years of hard work, long hours not eating properly and poor diet had taken its toll, so when I woke on that morning with indigestion and pain in my chest it came as no surprise that something was wrong with my heart. 999 was a hard number to ring but it’s a must, once arriving at the Lab where Dr. Konrad Grosser was on duty the whole event became a lot less fraught and easier to cope with. Konrad and his team were extremely calm and most important of all his confidence reassured and calmed me his skill during the procedure meant the medical bit was over in 22 minutes flat with little pain, indigestion and pain in my chest had gone. I was feeling better than I ever had felt for years and was home in 3 days to a life which is much different than before, certainly much fitter and healthier.
Dr. Konrad Grosser has given me a new life due to his skill and dedication to his profession. Thank you

Dr Grosser first treated me when I suffered a heart attack in October 2017, he made me feel comfortable, relaxed and then again asked to see me again as a follow up 6 months later to check everything was fine, again talked me through everything before and after the procedure – I totally felt at ease in his care

Dr Grosser recently fitted me with a Stent at the William Harvey Hospital at Ashford At a previous meeting he had described the procedure in full detail, the reasons why one was needed, the benefits and any possible problems. I was also briefed before the operation. On both occasions I found his manner very friendly and more than willing to answer any questions in lay mans terms. Whilst he came across as very professional there was no arrogance with him which helped considerably and enabled me to relax.

Dr Grosser was very kind and patient and willing to listen to questions and explain. He helped to put my mind at rest and I am very grateful to him. I am writing this review as if I were my husband

Following my event Dr Grosser made me feel totally at ease by explaining exactly what had happened and what resulting surgery I needed and 1year later I am fully fit and well And following another appointment with him today I feel that I have made a full recovery.
