Dr Marius has been my lifesaver in terms of some serious pain I was getting in my stomach. He diagnosed what was happening very quickly based on my symptoms and case and he organised treatment for me straight away resulting in instant pain relief. A doctor that genuinely cares with a lot of expertise and goes above and beyond! Thank you so much Marius.

An absolutely awesome consultant, with an excellent and genuine concern for patient care. I consider myself extremely fortunately to have been referred under his professional care and his treatment, has genuinely improved my quality of life. By far the most supportive and expert gastroenterologist that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Thank you for your continued support.
