    Dr Irving has a world-wide reputation in inflammatory bowel disease management and research. His status as one of the best clinicians in IBD in the UK and indeed the world means that his opinion is frequently sought by his colleagues who value his thorough, clear-thinking and pragmatic advice. He also has an extensive and wide reaching knowledge in all aspects of luminal gastroenterology. He is a valued and respected colleague and I can recommend him most highly.
