We have yet another gem to share about Gleneagles Hospital, which is that we believe it’s worth mentioning. With over 20 gastroenterologists on their resume, you’re sure to discover one who meets your needs.

Dr. Chuah Sai Wei is the lone female specialist in gastroenterology, which might be isolating for patients who want to see a woman doctor. She does, however, speak a few languages, including Chinese dialects.

Dr. Reuben is another expert worth noting, since he specializes in capsule endoscopy—a procedure that involves swallowing a tiny capsule with a small camera rather than going through the discomfort of traditional endoscopy.
