Specialists in Gut Health
If you’re having a problem related to the digestive system or gut, including heartburn, indigestion, abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, hemorrhoids or gas, your primary care provider might recommend that you see a gastroenterologist. These physicians specialize in diseases and conditions of the digestive organs, including colon polyps and cancer, hepatitis, gastroesophageal reflux (heartburn), ulcers, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and pancreatitis.
Gastroenterologists treat patients in the office as well as in the hospital, and are experts in all of the organs that come into play when you eat and drink, including the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver.
If you and your provider feel you may benefit from seeing a gastroenterologist, ask your provider for a referral. For more information, please call Olympic Medical Physicians at (360) 565-0999.
