My wife Molly and I would like to say a big thanks to you and all your staff and also to Dr J W and his team of NHS Trust (Portsmouth). When I met Dr W he made me feel assured that he was going to help me to a better quality of life. At that time I could not get around too much and I was in a bad way. I was unable to walk too far before I was in pain.
Dr W recommended to me this new EECP treatment, given by the Dove Clinic at Twyford, run by Dr Richard Fuller and his team. I rang Dr Fuller the next day and made an appointment. When I me Dr Fuller he explained the treatment (External Enhanced Counterpulsation) and I agreed to start as soon as possible. After 15 hrs of treatment I was feeling much better and the people I met all said I was looking so much better.
Since I had the last of the treatment, my quality of life has turned around. I can walk better, do not feel so tired and I am much happier. My angina has improved, the GNT spray I take 50% less (this is when I do too much in a short period of time or try to walk too fast). I would recommend the Dove Clinic EECP treatment to all who suffer with angina and heart problems. Molly and I would like to say a big thanks to the team who made our visits very pleasing and with the banter, the time went quickly. We can’t praise them enough. Thanks to you all.
I really want to express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the wonderful care and attention I received during the 7 weeks of my attendance. Hope to see you soon. With loving good wishes
Diagnostic tests in relation to my heart showed that I had a right bundle branch block. Whilst enjoying exercise I suffered from chest pains and breathlessness when tired, and was advised that I could be a prospective candidate for angina. Dr Julian Kenyon of the Dove Clinic advised that undertaking a course of Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP) would be a wise preventative measure and would be likely to sustain my cardiovascular health for some years into the future. I then attended for 35 hours of EECP treatment at the Dove Clinic in Twyford over a period of 4 weeks.
The results of this treatment were remarkable. I am 75 years old and continue to work as the Director of a cultural centre which I co-founded and where my work combines physical exercise (such as dancing and game playing), administration (such as fund raising and report writing), and team leadership (of a team including both volunteers and full and part-time staff). The period immediately following my EECP treatment turned out to be (due in large part to the recession and additionally to a reduction in staff availability) one of the most demanding and stressful of my entire working career. For 2 months I found it necessary to work 7 days a week for some 60 hours per week. I sailed through this as if I were half my age, and put this down entirely to the benefits of my EECP treatment. After a break to recuperate from this effort I am now working (and playing) again for some 35-plus hours each week, and I continue to feel the benefits of my EECP treatment.
