Consultative Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology is a branch of medicine that studies the digestive system and the disorders the accompany it. Diseases affecting the digestive system range in all organs from the mouth to the anus, along the alimentary canal.

Clearly, this covers a wide area, and at one time or another, everyone has experienced some sort of discomfort or problem in this area, whether it is something as common as bloating or as serious as cancer.

Many issues with the gastrointestinal tract and the digestive system are common and can often be symptoms of many diseases and disorders. Due to this, we offer consultative gastroenterology at our offices, to ensure that your overall health is at its best, and to determine if your digestive tract is unwell.
