Explanation

Dr Helen and her team have dona a superb job and I am so grateful for their care. It was my first time doing a colonoscopy and endoscopy, Before coming in the hospital procedure I was bit scared because I never done an invasive procedure and also because I am bit anxious person. Everyone was so kind and had great emphaty, it made a big difference and I felt safe and in good hands. At the end of procedure how was really happy how everything went. If you going through the same procedure, I want to reassure you, it does not hurt and does not take that long, you can trust Dr Helen's team :)

Helen and her team are brilliant professionals! She made the experience so calm and relaxed. Few gastros have the skill +gentleness + patience to to colonoscopies without general anaesthesia, but it’s a much safer and better approach. Highly recommend Helen for colonoscopy at The London Bridge Hospital.

Explanation

Dr Fidler has a lovely and friendly manner. She explained everything very clearly and also gave me the opportunity to ask any questions. The colonoscopy itself was fine and I didn’t feel anything. Mildly uncomfortable cramp for about 10 seconds but not at all painful. All over quickly too.

Explanation

Dr Fidler has an exceptional way of talking to one as a patient, with no hint of aloofness/arrogance that can affect many consultants. She explains clearly, in out-patient consultations and also before and after procedures. She is relaxed and friendly and above all listens, making one feel a part of the treatment, rather than being simply another anonymous patient
