I've used Manolis Aliferakis for a stress test and he seems OK. Certainly speaks good English. I've also used the cardiologist in Gavralakis clinic on Marko Botsari for an ECG plus report and he also speaks English. Gavralakis may be a bit more expensive but not excessively so and they have loads of other diagnostics on the premises if he decides he wants further tests, e.g. Ultrasound, CAT and MRI scanners plus blood tests etc.

I posted a recommendation here - http://www.livingincrete.net/board/viewtopic.php?t=8527 - about three years ago re: my consultation with an excellent cardiologist. What I didn't mention in that post was his fluent English.

I have spent many hours waiting at the hospital and in other places to have a vast range of tests. As a retired person, it is no big deal but my daughter who always accompanied me is trying to make an honest living teaching Greek children to speak English has to make big sacrifices to care for me.

I am in a something of a quandary. The medics who diagnosed and then operated on my bowel cancer and who are now treating a by-product were and are second to none: I often say that my age and the fact that I have diabetes and am overweight would preclude me from getting diagnosed and cured in UK. The same medics were amazed that there is now no trace of cancer in my body and I think, perhaps, the raft of tests I am having is just in case something got missed so it's all because of their diligence. But, nevertheless, the announcement of yet another test annoys me and yet again I have to juggle very limited finances to pay to be told I am OK and my daughter is struggling to manage the timetable to allow her to visit her daughter studying in UK whose career as an international soccer player is in peril and who is waiting - and waiting - and waiting - for an operation.

AS a Christian, I believe what the Bible says. The Apostle Paul once talked of the vast range of problems he was going through but he pointed out the "secret" was to be content with whatever situation he was in. How I try to follow his example and my annoyance at the brilliant medical care annoys me!
So illogical!

I am so privileged to live on this wonderful island, to enjoy the beauty of the sea and mountains and to have access to such wonderful food and have a pension that allows me to live modestly and pay my bills. I hate being so ungrateful for excellent medical care. AS my school reports so often said "must do better"!
