    Dr Rozicka carried out an angiogram for me in 2008. It was highly professional and I felt I'd been in good hands. I realized it had been someone who really paid attention to my feelings, explained to me everything I needed to know and carried out whole procedure in that way that I felt comfortable.

    I liked him very much. He is very nice, approachable and at the same time extremely professional. I don't think I've every had a doctor spend as much time with me. I was very impressed. I am very confident that I will get excellent treatment.
