The right answers the first time

Mayo Clinic Healthcare offers a one-stop gastrointestinal care experience: Nursing, consultant examination and diagnostic imaging all take place under one roof. Our model of care delivers accurate answers rapidly.

Your GI visit will begin with one of our registered nurses, who will discuss your personal and family history with you and, if required, take blood for testing. You will then see one of our leading consultant gastroenterologists, who will dive deeper into your condition. Your consultant will discuss with you further testing options to precisely diagnose your condition along with any management or treatment plans that are appropriate for you. In some cases, this may involve an endoscopy or virtual colonoscopy using a CT scanner, which can be provided in the clinic by our diagnostic services.

If necessary, your GI consultant will review your test results with a team of experts in London and the U.S. to develop a treatment plan individualized to your exact condition and needs.
