    Dr. Srirajaskanthan took the time to explain the results of my tests and patiently answered all my questions. His calm and composed interaction was very valuable in providing me with comfort. If any of my test results were not available on the day of the appointment, he would ensure they are communicated to me once they are available which was much appreciated.

    When I met Dr Raj, I was very frightened. He immediately reassured me explaining that my symptoms were not necessarily sinister. This immediately removed a level of anxiety even before the investigative procedure. The explanations ahead of and on the day of the procedure were clear. Many thanks for your care.

    I have known Dr Raj as my trainee and then appointed him as a consultant colleague in my NHS hospital. It is fair to say that he was one of the very best trainees we have had the pleasure to train. He has an enquiring mind, is highly empathetic, an excellent diagnostician, and he combines this with excellent procedural and technical skills in colonoscopy and endoscopy. We were very sad to lose him to take up a position in King's College Hospital when one came up to suit his subspecialist interest. Highly recommended!
