    I have had the pleasure of consulting Dr Mendall on a number of occasions as well as being under his care during endoscopies. He leaves no stone unturned and will do everything possible to get to the bottom of unusual or unexplained symptoms. His clinical knowledge is exemplary as demonstrated by his impressive array of peer-review articles in his field and it is clear that he is a true scientist/researcher-practitioner. Happily, he has a great sense of humour and approaches problems with a great deal of common sense and does not over-complicate matters. He is a shining example of a practitioner who has mastered not only the science of but the art of the application of medicine. I have no hesitation in saying he is the best consultant gastroenterologist one could hope for and that if you have the opportunity to see him about your problem, you should. We, his patients, are lucky to have him. The same can be said for his secretary, Caroline. She really is a ray of sunshine and is always happy to help with even the most awkward requests. Nothing is too much trouble.
