About Gastroenterology Specialists
A gastroenterologist diagnoses and treats problems with your digestive system, including your esophagus, stomach, intestines and other organs – the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder – that help you digest and absorb food. This is the type of doctor to see if you have pain or problems eating, if your stomach hurts all the time or if your bowel movements are painful or abnormal.
Make your appointment today to be referred by your primary doctor to see a Doral gastroenterologist who can help manage your digestive pain and discomfort.
