    I had a recurrent abdominal pain for which I had undergone tests telling me everything serious had been ruled out. However the abdominal discomfort continued. After an initial consultation which resulted in Markus Gess discovering the most likely cause I was prescribed a simple medication and given science based dietary advice which has resulted in my gut behaving normally again. I am really pleased that the condition is now sorted and am reassured and more knowledgeable about how to keep myself healthy and well. Thank you.

    An extremely efficient and genuinely caring manner with a skilled ability to "read" his patient. Having a gastroscopy is stressful from the perspective of the test itself and what might be discovered. Markus' calm and thorough explanations at our consultation and on the day helped greatly. During the examination he provided a commentary on what was about to happen next, which again was very comforting. Luckily for me, the outcome was a good one but I felt that, had I needed surgery or worse, a referral to an oncologist, Markus would have dealt with it all in a very good and skilled way. I would recommend him to anyone.

    In my 3 separate consultations with Dr Gess I found him to be approachable yet professional and able to appropriately rephrase any medical explanations to terms that made sense to me as a layperson. He also made a point to contact me out of hours (on a Saturday) to update on some results that were late back from a laboratory. It felt like this was going the extra mile and was much appreciated.

    Dr Gess was exceptionally efficient, professional and kind in dealing with my son when he was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease earlier this year. Despite the fact that it was Christmas time, he organised key tests and treatments to take place at the earliest opportunity on Christmas Eve, so that medication could be given and a treatment plan put in place. Within 24 hours, our son was showing signs of improvement after months of severe pain and declining health. Dr Gess was at all times charming, humourous, down to earth and crystal clear in his communication with us.

    Dr Gess has been amazing - from my very first appointment to my ongoing care. I couldn't ask for any more. He has been fundamental in my health progression - I am very privileged to have been able to have him involved. I would recommend him 100%.
