“Dr Datta made me feel in good hands. He is kind and has a great sense of humour. My colonoscopy experience by him was much more positive than previous ones. I'm grateful to have been referred to him.“

    Very friendly doctor. Took time to understand everything I had to explain about my symptoms and didn't dismiss any detail I provided, even if not necessarily relevant. Fully informed me of all options available so that I could make a decision myself. We had a great chat during our procedure which helped me be at ease .
