About me

Dr John O'Donohue is a Consultant Gastroenterologist in London, UK. 'Communication skills are particulary important to me. I pride myself on being a good listener, first developing a rapport with patients before making a diagnosis and agreeing a treatment plan with them. I also enjoy the challenge of making the right diagnosis, and performing endoscopy well and to my patients' satisfaction!'

Dr O'Donohue moved to London In 1990 and trained in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at King's College Hospital Liver Unit, St. Bartholomew's/Homerton London, and Western Infirmary, Glasgow.

Dr O'Donohue maintains a comprehensive gastroenterology practice dealing with a range of diseases of both the upper and lower digestive tract, especially irritable bowel, food intolerance, Crohn's, colitis and coeliac disease.
