Dr. Digesu has been my doctor for the last five years. I cannot say enough good things about him. He is an excellent listener and he knows how to explain medical conditions without scare tactics. I trust him with my health and I am so glad I have been his patient all these years.

Dr Digesu is the only gynaecologist I feel like I can trust. He is just exceptional. He took the time to listen to my concerns and give me thoughtful, personalised answers. He made me feel comfortable and that he genuinely cared for my health and wellbeing. I left with a smile and will be staying a loyal patient to him. Keep doing what you're doing Dr. Digesu!

Agree entirely. Dr Digesu was amazing and made me feel very comfortable during my pregnancy and delivery. He is very knowledgeable and kind. His positive attitude and sense of humor always made my day. During labour and delivery I felt safe and trusted I was in the best hands. I highly recommend Dr Digesu too.

As a first time mum, Dr Digesu guided me through this pregnancy and made everything as smooth and relaxed as it could be. I am someone who worries a lot, and to add to it there were some minor complications in the third trimester, but under Dr Digesu's care I felt the baby and I were as safe and well cared for as could be. You really cannot be in better hands, and I can't recommend Dr Digesu enough.

I have been suffering from recurrent urinary tract infections and bladder pain. I have seen so many urologists and gynaecologists in the last ten years who have treated me with one antibiotic after another. Finally I met Dr Digesu. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else. Thank you Alex for giving my life back.

His staff is wonderful and extremely pleasant, answering all my questions with kindness. It is always a joy to see them. I highly recommend Dr. Digesu for any woman. He is the best!!!

Being in a new city, it is almost impossible to know which doctors are good and which doctors are not, so I looked at doctify and read few reviews. I have to say I totally agree with all the comments. In the past, I only went to female doctors, but given the great feedback, I decided to try him out. I felt very comfortable and at ease in his care. He was incredibly professional and I felt safe and taken care of. I knew he had my best interest at heart when discussing my health with me and articulated information to me in a way I can understand. I really felt like he cared for me, which was a pleasant surprise. I have already sent several of my friends over to him, who were also singing his praises after their visits.  If you want an amazing and caring doctor by your side, then you are in the right place.

Dr Digesu is one of the most humanitarian doctor I met in my life! He has been very patient during all my pregnancy. He listened to my worries, answered to all my questions and more importantly he has been always available when I needed to be reassured. I was amazed by his professionalism and genuine interest in my case. When I met him I knew immediately that he was the perfect obstetrician for me. If you are looking for an Obstetrician who is going to bring your baby into this world and look after your pregnancy without any doubts I recommend Dr Digesu.

Mr Digesu helped and guided me through the pregnancy and delivery of my 1st baby.  He always found time to answer all my questions and I never felt rushed.  He did all the tests needed, reviewed and explained the results with me and made me feel comfortable the whole way through. After my first consultation, I could tell that he has seen a lot and he knows when it is time to worry and not to worry. This was what I liked the most about Mr Digesu. For someone having their first pregnancy, and being worried all the time, you need a doctor who can counterbalance your fears. The same thing for the delivery. Mr Digesu was extremely patient when it came to delivery time and walked us through all our options. He gave us enough time to let baby progress so we can have a natural delivery, while keeping everyone safe. I HIGHLY recommend Mr Digesu. No doubt!

After weeks of enduring undiagnosed symptoms and feeling like I was going mad, I took to desk top research to find a Urogynacology consultant privately. I suspected that I may have Intertistial Cystitis and needed to see an expert in this field asap. I was able to see Dr Digesu quickly and after a initial examination he recommended two diagnostic tests a) Video Urodynamics and a b) Cystoscopy. These tests do sound worse than they are, and Dr Digesu and his team were amazing at making the experience as pleasant as can be. Following both procedures my diagnosis was confirmed as Interstitial Cystitis and a treatment plan of 12 Bladder Installations was proposed. I felt immediate benefit and very quickly started to feel well and back to normal. Dr Digesu has been treating this condition for many years, and as such, has refined and honed his treatment plan, adapting the balance of drugs to treat individual symptoms. Including classic treatments alongside tried and tested naturopathic remedies. Dr Digesu's approach is straightforward, sensible and offers an understanding of the demands of a modern life. I very quickly felt that I had found a complete expert in this field. Dr Digesu really understands this condition, how it presents and how it effects you physically and emotionally. After completing my treatment I am well, have my life back and with careful measures, I can look forward to planning holidays and fun activities again. Next month I hope to complete a triathlon, three months ago before my treatment I was struggling to walk up the stairs! The Bladder Installation treatment plan is amazing and I can't recommend it enough. The treatments are very quick, painless and instantly soothing. After finishing my treatment plan I actually miss them and my regular trips to Nuada! If you are struggling with IC, particularly if you think you have exhausted all avenues, then I can't recommend Dr Alex Digesu and his Bladder Installation programme enough.

Words can't describe how thankful I am to have found Dr. Digesu. The quality of care and his passion for what he does are extraordinary. During my pregnancy Dr. Digesu always took the time to explain everything and took the necessary actions to ensure that the baby and I were always safe. I could get an appointment anytime and Dr. Digesu made himself always available when I needed. What really sets Dr. Digesu apart is that he treats you like you are his only patient. He is extremely knowledgeable and is great at anticipating needs to make you feel comfortable. The level of care was tailored to meet my needs not only from a clinical perspective, but making sure I felt comfortable emotionally. As far as I am concerned he is an absolute Saint and has the most important job of bringing life into this world. There is no one more who I would trust with such an important task than Dr. Digesu. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing my baby into this world!

I have been suffering from frequent and urgent need to pass urine both in the daytime as well as nighttime, bladder pain and urinary incontinence for the last 7 years. I have been diagnosed to have all sort of bladder conditions such as overactive bladder, chronic cystitis, interstitial cystitis etc. I have seen several doctors, physiotherapists and chiropractors and I have been investigated and treated for years with antibiotics, antidepressants, painkillers, physiotherapy and tablets to calm down my bladder and every other drug you can think of. I become depressed, anxious, out of answers, discouraged beyond belief and ready to give up till I met Dr Digesu. He provided me with the highest level of patient care I have ever experienced. He helped me understanding my symptoms and the cause of them. After his consultation I began to believe that there was hope for me. I follow his advices and underwent to a cycle of bladder instillations. Dr. Digesu was extremely careful and perceptive to my fears and needs and his approach and knowledge truly did change my life. For those women who suffer from interstitial cystitis and bladder problems, do not give up as there is help, hope and there are effective treatments. I now able to control my bladder symptoms better and I am almost pain free and completely normal. I could not recommend Dr Digesu and his approach more highly. Thank you Dr. Digesu for the profound difference you have made in my life!

We are so glad we chose Dr Digesu as our obstetrician as he is knowledgeable calm, friendly and reassuring. He has been exceptional in all areas and I always felt very comfortable talking to him. I came away from every appointment feeling relaxed and supported. I have been impressed with Dr Digesu since the first day I met Dr Digesu as he has been very supportive of my choices for the delivery and that really did make the world of difference. I knew I was in very safe hands. I really could not have asked for a better experience, and would definitely have Dr Digesu as my Obstetrician for my next pregnancy again. A brilliant Obstetrician.
