SPECIALIST CONSULTATIONS

SPECIALIST CONSULTATION

Consultations are requested by your General Practitioner or Referring Specialist to discuss your health concerns relating to your stomach, bowel, oesophagus or  liver.

An Initial Consultation typically takes up to half an hour where your health concerns are identified.

Information is also collected on your medical background, medications and previous investigations.  A brief examination is performed.  Relevant investigations may then be organised often including an endoscopic procedure.  Relevant advice and treatment is discussed with  you and a letter is sent to your referring doctor.

A Review Consultation may be required after an endoscopic or other investigations.  These are shorter and involve discussion around results from investigations, diagnosis and management plans.  For more complex or chronic problems more than one Review Consultation may be neccessary.
