Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology is subspecialty of Internal Medicine that focuses on the intestinal tract and liver. Ailments such as heartburn, ulcers, pancreatitis, hepatitis and colitis are the most common gastrointestinal complaints. Much of the field focuses on early colon cancer detection and endoscopy. Often endoscopy is performed to visualize and examine the internal organs, which include the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, colon, liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. It is also performed to treat conditions.  Among them are colon polyps, intestinal bleeding, and stones in the bile duct. Much of our practice is devoted to colon cancer screening.

 As well, common symptoms seen by our gastroenterologist include:

-Heartburn
-Liver Disease
-Jaundice
-Chest Pain
-Colitis
-Diarrhea

-Bleeding
-Abdominal Pain
-Constipation
-Hepatitis
