My husband had been suffering quite a lot for the last year or so with reflux/ heartburn issues. Our GP prescribed various tablets and DJ had done a lot of research in to various health type solutions which sometimes worked and sometimes not. So we decided to seek a professional opinion and after a lot of searching online DJ decided that Dr Rami Sweis was the consultant he wanted to see, his vast experience and knowledge worldwide was exactly what we wanted. The consultation was informative and reassuring and we were more than happy to take his professional advice regarding the prescribed medication which is working just fine and we have decided to have no further investigatory procedures done at this time. If the situation changes in future years then we will return. If you are concerned about issues like we were, then we can highly recommend a consultation visit to Dr Rami Sweis. February 2020

Dr Sweis is my 4th gastroenterologist and by far the best. He actually listened to me when I went through my symptoms and ran a battery of tests in a very organised manner to work out what was happening. He also explained to me very clearly what each test was looking for and possible outcomes. The endoscopy experience at the Princess Grace Hospital was very straightforward, quick and most importantly I didn't feel like another number to the staff and Dr Sweis there. I will continue to travel to the UK to see him in the future if required.

When I came to see Dr Sweis I had almost given up hope. Dr Sweis was able to diagnose and treat a swallowing condition for which I had seen numerous doctors without success, and which had made my life a misery. Following his intervention I can now eat again ! I can’t thank him enough. He is, without question, an exceptional doctor, an expert in his field, and a truly kind and caring individual. I feel beyond fortunate to have found him and am very grateful to him for everything he has done for me.
