Hello,

His symptoms are suggestive of a stroke. For this reason, I would like to review his brain CT scan and Doppler ultrasound in order to be able to give a more professional opinion. I remain at your disposal whenever you need.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
