    I met Doctor Murino at his office in central London he immediately seemed to me an extremely kind and friendly person who immediately put me at ease with reassuring words. After talking about my doubts and problems he explained me that according to him I would not have had nothing to fear about the conditions of my gut and that invasive checks would not be necessary. My conclusion as a normal person is that Doctor Murino is an excellent doctor and very dedicated to his work and his patients although I would have done examinations such a gastroscopy which perhaps would have revealed slight damage to the walls of my gut which could have been useful in diagnosing the problems discussed with me during the medical consultation. I really hope that doctor Murino will accept to do this invasive investigation in the future even if just for my personal piece of mind. I really recommend this doctor as very professional and competent

    I went to Dr Murino with potentially worrying symptoms after my GP requested to be urgently seen by a specialist. Dr Murino has been very attentive and clear in each step, from assessing the issue to diagnosing after performing some tests (colonscopy - that he performed in person - and abdominal scan). Tests were arranged fast and despite the covid delays, colonscopy went exceptionally well, no side effects at all and he has also been extremely understanding and helped managed my anxiety during the test. Competent specialist. Highly recommended.
