“Extremely professional, caring and takes the time to explain everything in a relaxed manner. I've had colonoscopies by other consultants in the past which were painful, but with Dr Chung-Faye it was totally painless and entirely comfortable. He seems to value patient comfort as a top priority. In future I will only see Dr Chung-Faye for matters of Gastroenterology because my experience was night and day better than elsewhere.“
