"Gastroenterologist"

About: Worthing Hospital

On Monday i saw a new Gastroenterologist at Worthing hospital. I was referred under the 2ww. They were the nicest, most understanding person i have ever seen as a patient and i am sorry i missed their name. They listened to my concerns, helped me rationalise my symptoms and mostly offered great support. If more doctors were able to do this the patients would feel so much better. Alleviating worries and anxieties goes a long way in treating illness. They never once made me feel uncomfortable. I left the consultation with the feeling that a huge weight had been lifted. Whoever they are, i would like to say a very big thankyou. And thankfully i did not need any further treatment at present
