Bloody stools, irregular bowel movements, abdominal pain, acid reflux, heartburn, constipation or diarrhea, are all triggers for scheduling a consultation with a gastroenterologist.

Gastroenterology examines the normal function and diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver. 

Common Digestive Disorders

· Irritable Bowel Syndrome - IBS (Crohn's disease)

· Gallbladder Disease
· GERD (Heartburn, Acid Reflux - Acid from the Stomach flows Backward up into the Esophagus)

Many diseases of the colon and rectum can be prevented or minimized by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, practising good bowel habits and submitting to screenings.

Colonoscopy is recommended for average-risk patients at age 50. If you have a family history of colorectal cancer or polyps, a colonoscopy may be recommended at a younger age.

The following screenings are available:

· Colon cancer screenings
· Colonoscopies and diagnostic colonoscopies
· Helicobacter pylori infection and its complications of peptic ulcer disease
· Stomach cancers, if seen in the family
