Was a pleasure
Obviously Dr. Glynn has a lot of knowledge. Adding to that; he explained all my tests and my situation clearly, guided me through the process and made me at ease and finally made sure I had all the information I need before I left the building
My experience with Dr Glynn was perfect, can't fault it in any way. I had an ongoing issue with my stomach that made me feel absolutely miserable, but Dr Glynn quickly figured out what was wrong with me, gave me a very effective treatment plan and was lovely and caring on top of it. I would highly recommend Dr Glynn.
Met Dr Glynn who explained my test results in a logical and easy to understand manner. Explained the next steps and tests and even though there was a long wait between each one, he chased other Doctors/Hospitals consistently until appointments were obtained. Would highly recommend Dr Glynn as a consultant as he presented himself well and knowledgeable in his field of Gastroenterology for me.
Dr Glynn was very kind about getting in touch and answering questions promptly. I never felt I was left waiting and worrying.
