What is a Gastroenterologist?

A gastroenterologist is a physician who specializes in disorders and conditions of the gastrointestinal GI tract, also called the digestive tract. After completing their general medical education, gastroenterologists train for at least two years to attain Board Certification in Internal Medicine. Then, gastroenterologists study for an additional 2 – 3 years specifically for conditions of the GI tract.

Endoscopic examination of the esophagus and stomach (upper endoscopy) or large intestine (colonoscopy) may be scheduled. These procedures are done at Sturdy Memorial Hospital, located in close proximity to our office.

The Gastroenterological services we perform on site include Video Capsule Endoscopy Studies, Remicade Infusion Therapy and Treatment for Hepatitis.
