Patient who saw Dr. Keith Alistair Steer in Northwick Park Hospital

What I liked: "Dr. Samarage is an angel. He is calm and understanding and has always gone an extra mile. He made us feel comfortable. He is very considerate and does not mind giving extra time from his busy schedule. He is, of course, one of the best doctors in the centre and is very approachable."

I went for: FMU

Patient who saw Dr. Hiran Samarage in Northwick Park Hospital

What I liked: "He's the best consultant I've ever come across. I'm now going to see him on the 13/2/2015 for removal of the right thyriod and want him to do it, not one of his team, as a have no trust in anyone else."

Could improve: "Seating area not enough seats and it is cold, & have sat there 3 hours at times to be seen."

Salazopyrin is the trade name for sulphasalazine. It is less commonly used for mild to moderate ulcerative colitis these days, as its side-effect profile is greater than that of mesalazine which is now used as first-line treatment for this indication. However, the drug can be particularly useful for patients with arthritis associated with inflammatory bowel disease, as well as for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Sulphasalazine is much cheaper than mesalazine for patients purchasing anti-inflammatory drugs themselves. Monitoring blood tests are advisable for patients taking this medication. The drug is contraindicated in patients with a history of sulphonamide allergy.
