What is a gastroenterologist?

A gastroenterologist is a physician who specializes in the gastrointestinal tract (including the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine) and other digestive organs (liver, pancreas, bile ducts, and gall bladder). Gastroenterologists see patients in the hospital and clinic, and also perform endoscopic procedures (e.g., upper endoscopy and colonoscopy). All of The Gastro Clinic Gastroenterologists are board certified and highly trained. They completed four years of medical school, three years of internal medicine residency, and between two and four years of gastroenterology fellowship.
