Often, gastroenterologists lead teams of nurse practitioners (N.P.s) or physician assistants (P.A.s) who also focus on digestive health. Alliance Community Medical Foundation - Gastroenterology listens to your problems, performs tests to make a diagnosis, answers your questions and prescribes the best course of treatment to help you feel better.
"Good" digestive health indicates an ability to process nutrients through properly functioning gastrointestinal organs, including the stomach, intestine, liver, pancreas and gallbladder. When these organs do not function properly, patients may need to see a gastroenterologist. Alliance Community Medical Foundation - Gastroenterology uses a number of techniques to view the organs of the digestive tract, with the most common tests performed being colonoscopy and upper-GI endoscopy.
