Saw Dr O'Donohue after getting symptoms that my GP was very worried about given my family history of colon cancer. The procedure was carried out with care (and some humour). I cannot thank him enough.

I have been introduced to Dr O'Donohue after seeing few different gastroenterologist with no resolution to my condition. My consultation with Dr O'Donohue was very encouraging. He has taken a fresh view at the problem as he was consolidating all past results and establishing his own investigation. Dr O'Donohue has been great at explaining the situation, guiding though the various options available to me and helped in thinking together about the best path forward to resolution.

I was referred to John O'Donnohue for a colonoscopy, I found him very thorough and clearly keeps himself well informed on developments in this area of medicine. When subsequent investigations were needed he adjusted the process to suit my circumstances. He gave clear explanations of the results and options available. He and his office are very approachable, professional and quick to respond. I have every confidence in John and his team.
