    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    I see a mixture of upper and lower GI patients. In terms of upper GI, I see patients with swallowing problems, heartburn, reflux, indigestion, among others.

    In terms of lower GI, I see patients with diarrhoea, change in bowel habits, bleeding, abdominal bloating and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    I see a mixture of endoscopic and medical treatments. I'm able to personally do a whole range of endoscopy investigations. I also have access to a really good team of other specialists, if needed, for radiology and scans.

    In terms of treatments, we have all of the available medications according to the latest research.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    My subspecialist interest is upper GI disease, particularly swallowing problems and reflux, and endoscopy and advanced interventional endoscopy such as endoscopic ultrasound, bowel cancer screening, and endoscopic resections.
