    Patient seen for:
    Benign gastric pyloric ulcer with stricturing. Endoscopy
    I had a particular difficult problem that required a considerable amount of experience and patience to get to the bottom of. As an ex-nurse I recognised that Dr Chatu went to great lengths to get my diagnosis right, [he does not know i was a nurse.] He spent a long time explaining and sharing his thoughts and told me that he discussed my problem in a case conference with his colleagues. He has the most wonderful manner, respectful, kind, and a good listener. I had many endoscopies and they were made easier by how he managed small detail that mattered to me. The endoscopy suite always felt friendly and relaxed when he was there. Most of all, despite the NHS constraints, his reassurance and accessibility and hard work meant that I was properly, treated, and am now fully recovered. I have great respect for Dr Chatu, one of the best doctors I have been treated by, ever.
