Gastroenterology is the field of medicine that diagnoses and treats conditions of the stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, liver, small intestines, colon, rectum, and the ducts between the organs.
Digestive diseases can be severely disruptive to daily life. The digestive tract is very complex and there is a wide array of symptoms that can indicate disease. Gastric symptoms should be investigated, as they are often symptoms of underlying conditions.
La Peer Health Systems’ Gastroenterology Department has a team of expert gastroenterologists and surgeons to diagnose, treat, and follow up on your GI condition so you can make the most of life.
In addition to our highly-trained doctors, we have a team of highly-trained nurses to provide health care and ensure that you are comfortable at all times. La Peer Health Systems was also named one of the 100 Greatest Places To Work by Becker’s ASC Review. We take great pride in our professional and courteous staff and are honored to be included on Becker’s 2013 ASC Review.
