Mr Shashank Gujar provided a great experience during the pre-process and post-process for my colonoscopy.

 

Mr Gurjar was open and welcoming making me feel at ease as soon as I met him. He listened attentively to my issues, completed the assessment and then explained the reasoning for the condition. He clearly explained the options and next steps.

 

Understood my symptoms and very knowledgeable about the treatment options. Gave me good advice to follow on the lead up to my proposed operation. Felt very relaxed and calm once the call had ended, think I’m in safe hands. Thank you.
