For a medical problem relating to the digestive system, the stomach and intestinal tract, your primary care provider may suggest a visit with a specialist in gastroenterology. These specialists have extensive training in identifying and screening for serious diseases at their earliest stages when prompt treatment and management are most beneficial.
These physicians perform colonoscopies — your best weapon in detecting colon cancer — with new technology in our endoscopy suite. Because we work closely with your primary care provider (PCP), we give you convenient and prompt access to diagnostic imaging and advanced procedures, and consult with your PCP if treatment is needed.
Our gastroenterologists are highly experienced in diagnosing and treating irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, indigestion, heartburn, chronic liver disease and gluten intolerance.
Some of the gastroenterology services offered are:
- Upper endoscopies
- Colon cancer prevention and detection procedures
