“I am patient from Barbados who have been visiting a number of Doctors and couldn't find the diagnosis for my problem. I came into contact with Dr. Despott after being referred by professor G K Fusai. Dr. Despott after reviewing my files and medical results indicated early what he thought could be the problem, he went further to recommend a number of further tests to rule out any nefarious issues after which he confirmed the cause of my problem. I can say now that after taking the prescribed medication I am feeling much better. To put things into perspective at one point in my journey I really felt like something was killing me and I didn't know and couldn't find out what it was. Thank you Dr. Despott for going the extra mile even to the extent that you were more focused on solving my issue rather than charging me for every service offered! Thanks again appreciate d from the bottom of my heart!“

I had an extremely positive experience with Dr. Despott, and I thoroughly recommend him. At a difficult time when I was concerned about my health, i was lucky to be told about him by a doctor friend of mine, and I found Dr Despott to be a competent, professional and caring doctor throughout. He clearly explained his plan of action, was thorough in his investigation, and personally carried out my procedures, which gave me great comfort and allayed my anxiety about them.

Dr Despott has been our family gastroenterologist and consultant for several years . He is amongst the top gastroenterologists in the U.K. and was recommended by our GP and an eminent stomach consultant . Dr Despott is very competent and responsible professional. The procedures carried out have been flawless and pre and post reviews comprehensive . He has always put us at ease by explaining the results and future follows if needed.Recently Dr Despott treated one of our family members for a chronic digestion issue and kept a regular follow up by phone to review treatment progress . A rarity for top consultants ! I would recommend without hesitation Dr Despott as a gastroenterologist and a highly experienced colon health expert.

Dr Despott provided me excellent care throughout my journey as a patient. As of pre-procedure (colonoscopy), I was given clear information regarding my procedure, its risks and possible complications. Regarding the procedure itself, I always felt very safe and well looked after. After my procedure, Dr Despott discussed with me in depth my bowel condition, giving me clear explanations about my treatment / after care plan, and that made me feel very safe and reassured, and part of the process. Also, Dr. Despott always found time to listen to my concerns and to ask questions regarding my condition and treatment. Overall, I have been very lucky to have Dr.Despott looking after me.
