Accredited Bowel Cancer Screening Colonoscopist
I am an experienced gastroenterologist who practices in the local area. My interests and expertise encompass all aspects of gastroenterology but my main interest is in Irritable Bowel Syndrome and bowel motility as well as performing safe, comfortable endoscopy to rule out any other pathology when appropriate.
My aim is to provide a sensitive, unhurried consultation where the patient is listened to as this is the most important step in making a diagnosis.
