Background Information 
Professional profile:

Dr David Gertner is a consultant gastroenterologist at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood, Essex, offering private gastroenterology care in our clean and comfortable private hospital.

I see the full range of gastroenterological conditions and carry out all the appropriate endoscopic procedures at Spire Hartswood Hospital.

I am particularly interested in inflammatory bowel disease and supervise the provision of nutrition support for patients in the hospital.

I have had extensive experience and training (particularly at St. Marks Hospital, London) in the management of difficult irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, nutrition and endoscopy.

Personal profile:
I am married to a GP and we have four children - two boys and two girls.

I play tennis regularly but am very keen on all sporting activities (particularly watching!)

I enjoy attending Wimbledon, test match cricket and West End theatre.
