Dr. Medwell's Background

Research training, expertise and qualifications

Care Philosophy

For almost 30 years, I have had the pleasure and joy of caring for patients with colorectal problems. I pride myself in the close personal relationships I have developed with my patients. From the youngest patient facing serious, potentially life-changing surgery for colitis, to the elderly cancer patient facing a colostomy, my philosophy is to give technically superior care in a dignified, open and caring manner.
