Dyspepsia

Your GP will have referred you to GI Choice for investigation of your dyspepsia/ indigestion. You will be offered an appointment the same week to see one of the team specializing in this type of problem (Mike Stroud, Mark Wright, Trevor Smith).

During your appointment we will take a full history, undertake a thorough examination and offer a preliminary opinion. The next step will usually be to obtain some further blood tests and then to arrange a gastroscopy to look for the cause of your symptoms. Where convenient for you we can usually arrange this the same day as your consultation. Sometimes, depending on your symptoms we may feel that an ultrasound would be useful and this can also usually be arranged for the same day with one of our radiologists (Drs Stedman and Hacking).

After the procedures we will discuss with you the diagnosis and arrange for further investigations if appropriate and recommend a management/ treatment plan plan.
