  • What is a Pediatric Gastroenterologist?
    A Gastroenterologist is a physician with extensive training regarding the proper function and diseases of the gastrointestinal system. They are first trained as a pediatrician, then do extra fellowship training for three years in the diagnosis and treatment of problems with the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. A gastroenterologist learns all aspects of the function of these organs and becomes proficient in specialized tests to evaluate for dysfunction.
