Who Should See a Gastroenterologist ?
A gastroenterologist is a doctor who specialises in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the digestive system. If you have symptoms such as diarrhoea, constipation, cramps, abdominal pain, blood in your poo, difficulty eating, or bloating then you may need to see a gastroenterologist if your GP isn’t able to help. A gastroenterologist can perform specialist tests to identify the cause of your symptoms and provide treatments for conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), gastro-oesophageal reflux, and gastrointestinal cancers. You will usually need to see a gastroenterologist if your GP suspects a digestive disorder or has diagnosed you with one of these conditions. A specialist can provide expert advice and additional treatment options to help with your symptoms.
