When To Visit A Gastroenterologist

Gastroenterology is the study of your digestive system and any related disorders. Digestive issues are common, but when food and beverages begin to cause pain and discomfort in your belly daily, consider scheduling an appointment with our gastroenterologist in Egg Harbor Township, NJ. Dr. Barry Kaufman and Dr. Gary Rosman at Atlantic Gastroenterology Associates are board-certified and fellowship-trained in gastroenterology and internal medicine. The primary goals of their practice are to provide evidence-based care to the community. If the following sounds too familiar, request a consultation to meet with our team.

When To Visit A Gastroenterologist

Please consider scheduling an appointment with our gastroenterologist in Egg Harbor Township, NJ, if you experience the following, as they may be signs and symptoms of an underlying condition such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, or heartburn:

  • Abdominal pain or bloating
  • Bowel movements that are difficult to control
  • Diarrhea
  • Excessive gas or belching
  • Dark urine
  • Painful heartburn
  • Chronic constipation
  • Changes in bowel habits

Including a gastroenterologist in your routine can result in more accurate detection of polyps and cancer, fewer complications from procedures, and less hospital time. Your primary care physician may refer you to a gastroenterologist if you have an increased risk of colon cancer.

Doctors recommend that men and women at age 50 see a gastroenterologist every ten years for a screening colonoscopy (or at age 45 for African Americans). Depending on your family history and other potential risk factors, you may require earlier or more frequent screening. Please consult with our gastroenterologists to determine the best schedule for your health.

Our doctors will closely monitor the regular and irregular function of your esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, gallbladder, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver when you visit Atlantic Gastroenterology Associates. Please call (609) 407-1220 to make an appointment with our gastroenterologist in Egg Harbor Township, NJ.
