Dr Pitcher after looking over my history and symptoms was quick to identify what the route cause was, while he did do test to rule out and put my kind at ease. He started me on a course and provided guidance I needed to recover quickly. By the second visit his analysis and suspension was validated by the test. Put me on short course of medication and gave lifestyle change recommendations, which has resulted a really good outcome for me.
Very kind, caring and patient as well as knowledgeable.
Really lovely man. Very understanding and reassuring. I have 100% confidence in him and would very highly recommend him to anyone. Very kind and very understanding and took time to explain procedures and results in a sensitive and reassuring way.

Mr Roy Farrell
Dr Maxton Pitcher is an expert gastroenterologist and a trusted colleague whom I hold in high regard. I have known Dr Pitcher for a longtime. I had the pleasure of working with him at St Mark’s where I was able to see what a skilled endoscopist he is. I also value his opinion immensely on all gastroenterology matters. I regularly refer patients to him. I would not hesitate to recommend him to both patients and friends who require an expert gastroenterology opinion.
