Dr David Gertner
MBBS, BSc, FRCP
I am 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.
Spire Hartswood Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
