    Dr Sarmed is an outstanding gastroenterologist with whom it has been a pleasure and an education to share patient care. Those I have referred to him for endoscopy and other matters affecting oesophagus and stomach have commented on his compassionate and sensitive style, efficiency and careful, understandable explanations of his findings. I will continue to discuss difficult patient problems with him and refer to him those who need an endoscopy.
