The conditions gastroenterologists treat include a broad range of conditions, such as: 

Gastroenterologists are specially trained to perform diagnostic tests of the digestive system. Their training includes the use of special instruments, such as endoscopies, to examine the inside of the digestive tract or obtain tissue samples (biopsies).


Information For Patients: Your First Visit

During your first visit, a detailed medical history will be obtained. It would be helpful if you bring a complete list of your current medications with dosage and instructions. (Your Pharmacy can provide a list for you) You may also bring your medications with you to the appointment. 

The doctor will ask you questions about previous illnesses and medications. Your answers may help to successfully treat your present medical condition. Bringing the results of recent labs, x-rays or other medical tests is encouraged. 

A physical examination, especially directed to the areas pertaining to the gastrointestinal tract, will be performed. The doctor will then discuss further diagnostic tests, such as laboratory studies, X-rays and endoscopic exams that may help diagnose your condition. Depending on your insurance, a referral by another physician may or may not be required.
