Please can you let me know where I can find a gastro- enterology department of big academic hospital to do a Halitoses test in Capetown or any Western Cape area and Tel No. if possible. It will be greatly appreciated.

Ooh and what do I ask for when I arrange it is it a special test.

Thanks for the info , this has been the most exciting news the whole weeks.

Thanx,Mic
