Gastroenterology Consultation Q&A

What is a gastroenterology consultation?

A gastroenterology consultation is a medical appointment with a physician who specializes in digestive system health and function. Dr. Diliberto believes the initial history is of paramount importance. This is complemented by the examination and additional testing if needed. 

As a premier gastroenterologist, Dr. Diliberto skillfully diagnoses and treats conditions and diseases affecting the following:

  • Esophagus
  • Stomach
  • Gallbladder
  • Liver
  • Pancreas
  • Small intestine 
  • Large intestine
  • Rectum

Problems in any of these areas can cause serious symptoms and health risks, but Dr. Diliberto can provide the situation-specific care you need. 

When might I need to schedule a gastroenterology consultation?

There are several reasons you might need a gastroenterology consultation with Dr. Diliberto, including:

New symptoms

Book a consultation if you develop new symptoms, including changes in bowel habits, diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, abdominal cramping, hemorrhoids, abdominal pain, or heartburn. 

Existing disorder

If you're already diagnosed with a digestive disorder, such as peptic ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis), fatty liver disease, or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a consultation can evaluate your treatment plan.

Colorectal/Cancer Screening

Book a gastroenterology consultation with Dr. Diliberto if you have a family history of colon polyps or colorectal cancer. Most people need to start screening at age 45, but you may need to do so earlier. Dr. Diliberto can evaluate your risk and recommend the right screening approach. 

No matter why you're having a consultation, Dr. Diliberto can answer your questions, address your concerns, and prescribe treatment if you need it.
