Gastroenterology is a medical specialty that focuses on the digestive system and its disorders. This includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, and liver. Gastroenterologists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal (GI) diseases and conditions.

Some common GI conditions that gastroenterologists diagnose and treat include:

  • Acid reflux disease (GERD)
  • Peptic ulcer disease
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Celiac disease
  • Diverticulitis
  • Hepatitis
  • Cirrhosis
  • Pancreatitis
  • Gallstones


Our Gastroenterologists use a variety of diagnostic tests and procedures to evaluate and treat these conditions, such as endoscopy, colonoscopy, ultrasound, and liver biopsy. Treatment options can range from medication and lifestyle changes to surgical procedures, depending on the specific condition and severity.
