BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

Dr Meenan performed my colonoscopy, which became necessary due to on-going issues with my stomach. He was extremely thorough in explaining the procedure beforehand and how to prepare for it. He made me feel calm on the day of the procedure and came by as soon as I woke up to discuss the results with me. Based on the outcomes I now have a new diet which already shows positive effects on my wellbeing.

Having on-going issues with the stomach impacted my life for years, and feeling quite hopeless I finally found Dr Meenan who managed to help me. He is an expert in his field, has a great way of handling specialist/patient conversations and made me feel very comfortable with talking about my issues. He spoke in terms that were easy to understand and answered all questions. Dr Meenan was very thorough with the way he guided me through examinations and explained procedures such as gastroscopy and endoscopy. He paid close attention when I was speaking, didn't interrupt me, and gave me confidence that I am in safe hands with him. Excellent experience – thank you very much!
