    Dr Menakaya has changed our lives completely, with his knowledge, expertise and patience, he is currently treating my sons bowel condition and has given my son back his confidence and a new lease of life, he is has helped us understand my sons condition and enabled us to get the right support from all services. As prior to this we didn't believe his condition was treatable. Dr Menakaya takes the time time to really listen to all my concerns/worries and i will be for ever grateful for his time and care given to my son and me, I would highly recommend him.

    Dr Menakaya is very kind and gentle which is what a young scared child needs when nervous about visiting the hospital. He explains things very clearly, drawing diagrams where necessary which has been really helpful with explanations for my daughter.
