Please pass on my thanks to Dr Sweis for the care I experienced today. He patiently dealt with all my anxious questions, he took time to come and speak to me again when my husband had arrived, and the endoscopy was very smooth and painless. I felt in very safe hands.

Longstanding problems with my stomach has really affected me. I felt quite miserable. I then found Dr Sweis. He has really helped me. He is an expert in his field. He has a really nice way of handling conversations. He made me feel very comfortable about talking about my tummy (who would have imagined that!). I found it easy to understand him. He answered all my questions thoroughly and carefully. He guided me through examinations and explained procedures such as gastroscopy and endoscopy. He paid close attention when I was speaking. What is more, his secretary was really easy to talk to and she was also very helpful. Overall I had an excellent experience – thank you!

I spent a considerable amount of time thinking about who I wanted to see. Dr Sweis is clearly an international expert in oesophageal disorders (I looked up his long list of published medical papers). He did not disappoint me when I went to see him. He made some very inspired comments and has helped me significantly with my problems. I am pleased I chose to go to this doctor.
