Explanation

We consider ourselves absolutely lucky to have had Dr. Crespi treat our son. With our son displaying some rare symptoms, we met several well respected doctors, all of whom came well short in truly understanding and diagnosing our son, despite their best efforts. From our very first conversation with Dr. Crespi however, he showed a passion to understand and carefully consider his next steps so as to guide us properly. He suggested we do some additional tests because he suspected a rare disorder that if left untreated, could have serious consequences. He wasted no time in getting these tests done, and throughout the process kept us fully informed, calm and relaxed about what the next steps would be if in fact his hypothesis was correct. As it turned out, he was absolutely right in identifying a rare disorder that affects 1 in 100,000 people. He walked us through how it was fully manageable with various options to treat it so that our son would be able to get back to a healthy normal life. We put all of our trust in Dr. Crespi and in turn, he was with every step of the way until our son had received the appropriate treatment from the appropriate specialist that he found and who is now well on his way to a full recovery. Dr. Crespi did not care about day or night, weekday or weekend, as he knew that we were very stressed, and that our son was in discomfort. He knew that every hour that passed was one of discomfort for our son and so he fast tracked everything he could to get us the help and support we needed. When it was all done and our son was treated, he continued to inquire about our son and still does to this day. Lucky is the family that gets such a thoughtful, highly experienced, and result oriented doctor like Dr. Crespi working with them. We will be forever grateful for his support.

We felt really lucky to have found Dr Crespi as a Gastro Consultant for our 14 year old son. This is an uncomfortable conversation for teens but Dr Crespi was great and explained everything really well in a reassuring manner. He was very inclusive with our son at every point of the conversation. We continue to be under the care of Dr Crespi and his team and feel genuinely lucky our son has such great care.

Explanation

We saw Dr Crespi on two occasions over video as we live over an hour from his London clinics. Our appointments were in relation to my 5 year old daughter's difficulties with constipation. Dr Crespi was very knowledgeable about treatment for childhood constipation and suggested changes to her existing treatment. More importantly he took a thorough history of her symptoms and symptoms in family members. At our first appointment he recommended tests for coeliac disease and wrote directly to our GP to request these. The results were positive and Dr Crespi was available over the phone to help us understand these results and to advise on next steps. He also communicated directly with our GP to ensure they organised immediate follow up as appropriate. In a subsequent appointment Dr Crespi took the time to formally diagnose our daughter and to explain the impactions of this. He advised us on what long term follow up we would require and again, spoke directly to our GP about how to arrange this locally. He also advised coeliac testing for our family. We felt informed and prioritised throughout our time under Dr Crespi. In my opinion, the most helpful factor was his willingness to liaise directly and immediately with our NHS GP to ensure appropriate follow up. This aspect is often lacking in private care but was seamless on this occasion. We are very grateful to Dr Crespi and his team and will certainly recommend his services to others.

Thank you very much for your review. I am glad that I was able to help recognise the underlying issue and recommend treatment. I'm a firm believer in timely and transparent communication with GP and specialist colleagues in healthcare, across NHS and private sectors, to make a patient's journey as smooth as possible.
