“At Universal Gastroenterology, we aim to provide an empathetic and professional service. The first step is to carefully listen to what the patient has to say and to clarify their concerns. We aim to provide a comprehensive approach to investigation, diagnosis and treatment informed by evidence-based medicine.”
