I was terrified about the thought of an endoscopy. I need not have been. I didn't feel a thing. What a brilliant endoscopist.
Congratulations on a pain-free vomit-free endoscopy and a clean bill of health. What more could you want?
Very kind and reassuring, would highly recommend.
Great doctor with very professional and at the same time personal approach. Enjoyed my visits!
An outstanding doctor. He made me feel comfortable and at home. He sorted out the diagnosis and treatment and all went very smoothly.
Fantastic. Also very funny doctor. Made a refreshing change!
I came see Professor Lovat for a second opinion from the Netherlands. I'm delighted I made the journey. He has sorted out my problem in the way that the Dutch doctors simply couldn't. Thank you very much.
Dr L Lovat has looked after me amazingly. I am so fortunate that I found him.
Really outstanding doctor. He helped me when other doctors couldn't. Thanks so much!
I am so grateful to Prof Lovat for looking after me. He is so kind and caring.
Professor Lovat looked after me very well. He did not find the cause of my pain but he investigated entirely appropriately and has passed me on to a gynaecologist as it seems the problem is coming from there. I thank him very much for his help
Amazing expertise. Very informative. Hugely reassuring. Kind and approachable. This is the first time I haven't felt anxious seeing a doctor in a long time.

Professor Lovat did a colonoscopy for me. It didn't hurt at all. I didn't feel any pain and I watched it all on TC. My doctor was very good.
Truly outstanding doctor. He really knows his stuff. He corrected the wrong diagnosis given by another doctor and proved that he was right. He has put my mind at rest. I was so worried. Thank you for looking after me.
Professor Lovat is very personable and reassuring and humorous. I would recommend him to anyone.
Professor Lovat really put my mind at rest. His advice was sensible, straightforward and completely practical. I already feel so much better. Thank you.
Very charming and very knowledgeable. He has given me light at the end of the tunnel. I have been in pain for a year but Prof Lovat has given me a way through.
I am a 65-year old Greek writer who has been diagnosed with Barrett's oesophagus by a famous Athens hospital. For nearly two years I lived under the nightmarish words of dysplasia, starting from low grade and ending in high grade, based on histological analyses of biopsies taken during multiple gastroscopies. The results were at the same time quite conflicting so I became very confused and decided to have a second opinion in the UK. Thanks to my son, Dr Nikolas Pontikos who works in genetic research, I met Professor Lovat who recommended and carried out himself a gastroscopy in the Wellington Hospital. The results of the biopsies taken were negative both as regards Barrett's oesophagus and dysplasia. I was naturally very relieved by the findings and can face life once more with optimism and hope. I wholeheartedly recommend Professor Lovat to any patients with similar problems. His expertise, friendliness and encouragement set him apart from many doctors I have met in the course of my life.
Excellent endoscopy experience
Professor Lovat investigated me thoroughly, treated me really well and even better, he has put my mind at rest. Thank you very much indeed
Professor Lovat is very unusual. He admits he doesn't know everything but he helped my mother and he has really helped me. He is wonderful.
Many many thanks for all you have done. Words cannot really express my gratitude
Endoscopy was absolutely painless. I felt comfortable the whole time. It went very quickly. I don't know what I was worried about. Tea and biscuits afterwards were nice too!
I never thought I would say that I might enjoy an endoscopy experience but I did! From beginning to end Prof Lovat and his team looked after me so well. Thanks so much!

He is an outstanding practitioner in every way; patient centred, thorough and forward thinking.
Thank you for having such a remarkably efficient and kind private secretary
Thank you so much for answering my questions yesterday. I really appreciated your kindness and patience. The fact that you explained the procedure so clearly, and with such respect, was extremely reassuring.
A thoroughly nice man and an excellent doctor.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and in particular Professor Laurence Lovat for the treatment I have received relating to my Barrett’s oesophagus condition. I was recommended for Halo radiofrequency ablation treatment offered by Prof Lovat at UCL following routine gastroscopy in October 2014 at my local hospital at which time it was discovered I had a number of pre cancerous nodules.
From the first consultation, Prof Lovat helped me come to terms with my condition, the treatment options, put me at ease and reassured me all the way through the process.
Following investigation the nodules were found to be cancerous and were removed. I subsequently underwent the latest Halo treatment in January & April 2015 to remove the Barrett’s condition and I have just been given the all clear.
I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been recommended to Prof Lovat and that it was possible for me to receive the treatment so quickly. I now feel great and look forward to living my life normally.
Once again, I cannot thank you enough for all your kind help and assistance.
I would like to extend my respects to Professor Lovat and his team. In an oblique sort of way, I have enjoyed being part of the process, which under the Professor’s explanation, I could even pretend to understand. Such close tolerances, applied to such a spongy environment amazes me. Perhaps I already know enough! A privilege: so again, with the kindest regards and very many thanks
Thank you for all you invaluable advice and expertise over the last few months. I feel so much better informed and significantly healthier than when I first came to you which is very much appreciated.
I’d like to thank you for your kindness and sensitive approach to your patients. It is really deeply appreciated
Thank you to Professor Lovat for your reassurance and recommendations.
