extremely capable and down to earth, and a genius with and Endoscope (painless)
Not having undergone this treatment before, and worrying what might be discovered, I found Dr Hoare and his team ever so kindly and caring, and felt at ease from arrival to departure. I would certainly return in the future if needed.
I chose Dr Hoare based on his experience and expertise as shown in his profile. It was one of my best decisions! Dr Hoare was very approachable, professional and put me at ease. He took the time to obtain a comprehensive history and listened to all of my concerns. He then outlined a course of action which he followed up in a letter. He organised blood tests and an endoscopy. After the endoscopy, I had further questions but instead of insisting I make a follow up appointment he very generously answered my questions in a series of emails. Although the outcome is that my ailment cannot be resolved, Dr Hoare advised me how to manage it currently (through diet) and tests to consider in the future. I have peace of mind knowing it has been fully investigated and that it's not causing me any harm at the moment. In my opinion, Dr Hoare definitely puts his patient's needs first and has extensive expertise and knowledge. I recommend him highly. His PA, Kristina, is wonderful to deal with, friendly and efficient.
Dr Hoare managed to get to the core of an illness that nobody else had been able to diagnose in about 3 minutes. It was great to find someone who was able to extract insights from my symptoms and a variety of tests I'd already done, rather than just go down the usual route of recommend a series of tests for unlikely candidate illnesses.
I was really sorry that I only saw this doctor once
