Voiceover:
Pixie McKenna has been practicing for eight years.

Dr. Pixie:
I can see anything from wind, worms, warts, it’s all in a day’s work for me…

It’s really time embarrassing illnesses came out of the closet…

And is it quite smelly when you pass the wind?

Patient: Umm not to me it isn’t

Dr. Pixie: People worry themselves to death over something that could be sorted out in five minutes…

Oh my God that’s changing colour already I mean literally the top test should change within two minutes and yours has changed like instantly.

I’ve seen it all before…

People have between 15 and 40 episodes of passing wind a day…

Patient: really?

Dr Pixie: let it out.

You must be absolutely thrilled.

Patient: really pleased.

Dr Pixie: It is quite impressive isn’t it?

People shouldn’t feel ashamed, we’re all the same.
