You talk to the patent before the endoscopy and make him feel comfortable. You have light hands and the endoscopy didn’t hurt. I thought it would be painful but it was not at all.
- Mr KAG, Kuwait
The amazing thing is that the overgrowth and the tumour that you removed have not grown back, you saved his life, God bless you.
- Mrs LD, Hertfordshire
“No retching? You did my gastroscopy with no retching? How did you manage that? Amazing! I was in a state. I delayed coming for 2 months until my husband said “Your life is so miserable. Go and do it.” If I’d known I would have come much sooner.”
- Mrs RL, Isle of Wight
Once again, I¹d like to thank you for your kindness and sensitive approach to your patients. It is really deeply appreciated
- Mrs DP, London
'I would like to thank you form the bottom of your heart not only for your readiness to perform endoscopy on a Sunday evening but also for the exceptional kindness towards both my mother and myself'
- Mrs JL, Cambridge
