    Dr Kumar was very helpful. He looked after me very well during the OGD procedure and kept me feeling at ease and calm the whole time, he explained my condition very well to me during the follow up consultation which i understood. Very happy to find out what my actual condition is after so many years with acid reflux problems. I now know how to manage my condition in order to manage my symptoms. Highly recommended.
