Client Testimonials

The service provided at Gastrolife is fantastic. I carried out a SIBO test there, and tested positive. After years of digestive issues, I am now finally on the mend after identifying the correct treatment. This has given me great relief. Melissa is a wealth of knowledge and is really at the cutting edge of science in diagnosing and treating digestive issues. The team in Gastrolife is always efficient, professional and very friendly, and I would highly recommend them. - Damien - Co. Clare

I decided to take the SIBO breath test with Gastrolife after suffering with IBS for more than 10 years. Melissa and all the staff were very knowledgeable and the test itself was very simple. I am glad I did, because the results were positive. My Gastroenterologist has since treated the SIBO and I am doing a lot better. - Conor - Co. Kildare

The test is well organised and managed. Everything is clearly explained and Melissa puts you at ease throughout the process. There is a lot of time available to do the test so you can choose the most convenient. - Veronica - Co. Dublin
