Gastroenterologists are specialists who deal with the structure, functions, diseases and pathology of the digestive system. They diagnose and treat conditions related to the intestines, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and stomach.
Gastroenterologists at TexomaCare evaluate the following signs and symptoms to find their root cause:
- Abdominal pain
- Acid reflux or heartburn
- Blood in vomit or stool
- Bloating or gas
- Difficulty swallowing
Testing for Gastrointestinal Problems
Diagnosing your symptoms is the first step to obtaining successful treatment. A gastroenterologist will likely do a combination of the following: review your medical history, conduct a physical exam and order lab tests. Among the tests conducted may be:
- Colon cancer screening (colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy)
- Lab tests that look for blood in the stool
- Imaging tests that help your physician see how your digestive system processes food and waste
- Tests that help show the strength and function of muscles in the esophagus, rectum or anus
At TexomaCare, we understand the importance of physician-to-patient interaction.
