Digestive Health (Gastroenterology)

For the body to feel healthy, the digestive tract must function optimally. Everyone has digestive problems from time to time—an upset stomach, vomiting, gas, heartburn, bloating, irritable bowel or constipation. Digestive problems may be uncomfortable or embarrassing, but they are often not serious and rarely do they last long. Digestive problems are often caused by food intolerances, contaminated foods, viral illnesses, menstruation or pregnancy, or side effects from medications or supplements. However, common symptoms may sometimes be a sign of a more serious digestive problem. We can help.
