Conditions We Treat

The first step of treatment is to understand exactly what the patient is experiencing. Our doctors will discuss your symptoms, perform a physical examination and order diagnostic tests to determine the cause of your problem. Common digestive conditions include:

Celiac Disease

When people with celiac disease eat gluten, it triggers their body’s immune response, leading to a flood of toxins that damage the lining of the stomach. The most common symptom is diarrhea. People with celiac disease may also experience bloating, gas, fatigue and osteoporosis.

Crohn’s Disease

This inflammatory bowel disease causes chronic inflammation in the digestive tract. The symptoms, which range from mild to debilitating, include abdominal pain, fatigue, weight loss and severe diarrhea.

Diverticular Disease

Diverticular Disease consists of two conditions: diverticulosis and diverticulitis. Diverticulosis is the formation of several tiny pockets, called diverticula, in the lining of the bowel. They can form while straining during a bowel movement or during constipation. Diverticulitis occurs when there is swelling and infection in one or more of the diverticula. Symptoms include painful abdominal cramps and chills.


Gallstones are hard, pebble-like deposits made of digestive fluid that develop in the gallbladder. Typically, symptoms begin when a gallstone becomes large enough to obstruct bile ducts. Attacks usually occur after a fatty meal. People with gallstones may have steady, severe pain in the upper abdomen that increases rapidly and may last from 30 minutes to several hours, along with nausea, vomiting, fever and bloating.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease

GERD is a chronic disease that occurs when stomach acid or bile flows back into the tube connecting your mouth and stomach and irritates the lining. Typically, people with GERD have acid reflux or heartburn at least twice a week.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

IBS is a common disorder of the large intestine. With IBS, the nerves and muscles in the bowel are highly sensitive and may contract too much during meals. Symptoms can include stomach pain, gas, diarrhea, stomach bloating, constipation and cramping.

Peptic Ulcer Disease

A peptic ulcer is a sore in the lining of the stomach, small intestine or small intestine. The sores form when stomach acid damages the lining of the digestive tract. The most common symptom is burning stomach pain.

Ulcerative Colitis

UC is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease. It causes long-lasting inflammation and ulcers in the digestive tract. Symptoms, which develop over time, include rectal bleeding, bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps and pain.
