It is frequently the case that procedures such as Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy or other investigations may well be needed. We would always aim to weigh up the benefits and the potential risks of any intervention and discuss this with you so that an informed decision can be made together.
We would hope to take a path that involves as much care and thought as possible and that leads to a good outcome, taking into account the individual needs and concerns of each patient.
I have accreditation with the relevant bodies for any procedures performed and I audit my performance in these areas to assure maintenance of quality of practice. I participate in ongoing education as recommended by the Royal Australian College of Physicians.
