If you have a problem relating to the gastrointestinal tract (gut), then your GP is generally your first point of call. If they feel it is appropriate, they will provide you with a referral to see a specialist Gastroenterologist for consultation.
At consultation, Dr Santosh will listen to your description of the problem, ask any further questions about your medical history, perform an examination, provide the likely diagnoses, and provide you with the options for treatment. Sometimes, additional tests may be required. You will be given the opportunity to ask questions.
