Prof. Dvorkin sorted several issues for me, for which I am so grateful. I had seen a consultant before about same issues and nothing was resolved, so I’m doubly grateful! I wonder why I lived with these problems for so long any further issues I will be straight back to Prof D!

I would recommend Prof. Dvorkin to anyone needing treatment at Cavell. He was thorough, clear, investigated all areas, gave clear options and helped me feel at ease. He is very knowledgeable and patient in answering all our queries and managed to fix me that hospitals could not

Professor Lee Dvorkin is the right choice I made for my treatment. Had my endoscopy and colonoscopy done with him with further treatments. Very well planned treatment and he made an extra effort to fit in my appointments earlier as I was very anxious. Surely recommend for all.
