Dr Francesco Lo Monaco has been my cardiologist for 3 years. I had a stroke and other doctors couldn’t understand the cause. He found a hole in my heart and sent me to have it closed. I can’t thank him enough for his professionality and ability to interact in a very human way. He reassured me all the way, being always available and ready to help even after his normal working hours. I strongly recommend him as a great cardiologist

I saw Dr Lo Monaco for the first time two years ago when I was admitted for irregular heart beats. He found that I had a supraventricular tachycardia. He gave me very good tablets and then sent me for a surgery. Now I feel very well and I definitely recommend Dr Lo Monaco because he is not only an exceptional cardiologist who works with passion and dedication but also because he is very human and kind and genuinely interested in you.

I met Dr Lo Monaco one year ago. He diagnosed me with Brugada syndrome, a problem with the electrical system of the heart. When he saw my ECG he requested tests to shed more light on my problem and saved my life as bad consequences now can be prevented. I am very grateful to him for his medical knowledge and very empathic behaviour as focused always on my concerns and fears first. I am very happy and satisfied with his services.
Dr Lo Monaco saw me in his clinic because I had palpitations and chest pains. .He immediately made me feel comfortable and I trusted him. He was very professional, thorough and requested some tests to understand the cause of my problems. I had the feeling that finally a doctor was interested in solving my problems and took time to make sure I understood everything. I couldn’t imagine a more kind and knowledgeable doctor,
