Pediatric Gastroenterology

Pediatric Gastroenterology

Children’s growth is highly dependent upon their ability to digest their food and get the proper nutrition. It’s important that their gastrointestinal system (esophagus, stomach, intestines, liver, biliary tract, and pancreas) is working properly. If your child has frequent bellyaches, constipation, diarrhea, food allergy symptoms, or isn’t growing at the same rate as other children, they might need to see a gastroenterologist. 

We specialize in diagnosing and treating gastrointestinal tract and nutritional problems of infants, children, adolescents, and young adults, including food allergies. We offer comprehensive appointments, spending as long as it takes to get to know you and your child well. Depending upon your insurance plan, we can see patients with or without referrals.
