"Gastrocopy Investigation New lands Unit"

About: Queen Mary's Hospital (Sidcup)

Attended here for 9/10/14 for gastrocopy investigation of my gullet after swallowing difficulties.Arrived slightly early for 10:40 appointment was seen swiftly and efficiently. Opted for local spray anaesthetic tube with camera down throat little uncomfortable with some involuntary burping. Took about 4 minutes with camera actual going right down into stomach. Samples taken for biopsies and await results. Doctor informed me of what he found within few minutes and told nothing sinister but would need to take some medication. Taken to recovery area for about 15 minutes and given copy of results complete with photographs and explanation of problem found. Left after about hour of arrival and in Eltham for lunch at midday. All in all first rate service.Excellent. Thank you.
