When should you see a gastroenterologist?

Living with an untreated GI issue can affect your daily life and leave you feeling embarrassed and isolated. In addition, you may be trying to manage persistent stomach pain, diarrhea, nausea, bloating, acid reflux, abdominal cramping, constipation, and unwanted symptoms after eating varying foods.

A gastroenterologist can offer informed and personalized dietary recommendations, medications, lifestyle changes, and symptom management tips to improve your quality of life and minimize many common distressing gastrointestinal symptoms. treatments are more effective when GI issues are diagnosed in their early stages.

As you age, you also need appropriate age-related cancer screenings. We can provide individualized recommendations based on personal risk factors and symptoms to ensure you are being appropriately screened and surveilled.
