Gastrointestinal issues can can make you feel miserable on a daily basis, with symptoms such as burning in the throat and chest, stomach cramping, and abdominal pain. Chronic heartburn, ulcers, gallstones and other digestive disorders can have a wide range of symptoms that vary in intensity with each patient and with each day.
A gastroenterologist, a doctor who specializes in disorders of the digestive system, can help diagnose and treat digestive pain and discomfort. In addition to assessing your symptoms, gastroenterologists may perform diagnostic procedures, such as an endoscopy or colonoscopy.
