"Diagnostic gastroscopy"

About: Wharfedale Hospital

Having a gastroscopy filled me with dread, but everyone was really kind, good humoured and reassuring. The procedure was carried out with such expertise and care that I experienced no discomfort and didn't even have a sore throat afterwards. Many thanks to my doctor, the nurses and support staff.
