Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your review, it is much appreciated. From my experience over the years, I recognise that digestive issues affecting children can at times become a significant source of worry. I try to be as accessible and available as possible for this reason and I am really pleased to have been able to reassure and help you throughout.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave this review. As a parent myself, I can easily remember those times when I have also looked for either reassurance or guidance as to the next best steps for one of my own kids. I will always use clear explanations during any consultations, and am more than happy to answer any questions. I also find that providing more accessible information, either from the www.kidsgastrocare.co.uk website, or others that I have found over many years, can be really helpful for parents to use when they are at home. I am really glad to have been able to help and thanks again.

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your feedback. I'm really pleased that we could all work together and achieve some positive progress. I've learnt through experience with my own children, as well as from dealing with many paediatric patients over the years, that having a practical approach, and coming up with a customised plan that a child is able to readily engage with, is really important. Thanks again and take care, Dan Crespi
