"I only saw Dr. Coy for about 3 minutes prior to and after my colonoscopy and he was very nice. His staff, however, are quite simply outstanding!!! Every single one of those ladies went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and relaxed. I can't say enough about them. And not only was the office punctual, I was in and out earlier than my appointment!"August 15, 2019
What is Gastroenterology?A gastroenterologist is a doctor that specializes in the normal function and diseases of the digestive tract, which includes the stomach, intestines, spleen, pancreas, and liver. As a specialty, gastroenterology is the study of how food moves through the body, how nutrients are absorbed by the body, and how waste is removed by the body. A few of the conditions that a gastroenterologist might treat are:
- ulcerative colitis (a condition where inflammation and sores affect the lower intestine)
- gallbladder disease (where bile stored in the gallbladder thickens and causes inflammation or gallstones)
- gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD (stomach acid flows back into the throat and causes a burning sensation and tissue damage)
