If you experience persistent digestive symptoms, rectal bleeding, or other concerning GI issues, seeking evaluation and treatment from a gastroenterologist is encouraged. The Department of Gastroenterology's expertise in diagnosing and managing a wide range of digestive system disorders can help you achieve optimal GI health and well-being.

These issues may indicate a need to see a GI provider:

  • Persistent Digestive Symptoms: If you experience persistent symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, reflux, vomiting, or changes in bowel habits, it's essential to consult a gastroenterologist. These symptoms could indicate underlying GI conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or peptic ulcers.
  • Rectal Bleeding or Blood in Stool: Rectal bleeding or blood in the stool can be alarming and may indicate serious GI conditions such as colorectal cancer, hemorrhoids, or inflammatory bowel disease. If you experience these symptoms, it's crucial to seek prompt evaluation by a gastroenterologist for further assessment and appropriate management.
  • Digestive System Screening: Routine screening for colorectal cancer and other GI conditions is recommended for individuals at average or increased risk, typically starting at age 50. Gastroenterologists perform screening tests such as colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, and fecal occult blood testing to detect abnormalities early and prevent the development of colorectal cancer.
  • Liver or Pancreatic Disorders: Symptoms such as jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes), abdominal pain, swelling, nausea, vomiting, or changes in appetite may indicate liver or pancreatic disorders such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, or pancreatic cancer. Consulting a gastroenterologist is essential for accurate diagnosis and management of these conditions.
