Many people suffer from problems of the gastrointestinal (GI) system, which includes the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. These problems may come and go. Sometimes they are simply a reaction to something you ate. Gastrointestinal symptoms may include:

  • An unexplained change in your bowel movements
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Chronic constipation
  • Chronic heartburn
  • Persistent blood in your stool
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Persistent abdominal pain
  • Unexpected weight loss
  • Chronic tiredness or sudden fatigue
Consult your physician if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms. Once your condition has been identified, your physician can discuss treatments. We treat patients for a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions, including:

  • Swallowing disorders
  • Peptic ulcer disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Gas, bloating and burping
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Gastric outlet obstruction
  • Barrett’s esophagus
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Diverticulitis
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Cirrhosis of the liver
  • Gallstones
  • Cancer of the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, small intestines, colon, rectum and anus
  • Pancreatitis

A routine colonoscopy can save your life

Colonoscopy is one of the screening procedures used in the early detection of colorectal cancer when it’s most treatable. Colonoscopy is a diagnostic procedure that allows the physician to examine the entire large intestine.
