Why Should I See a Gastroenterologist?

Having a GI specialist who knows what to look for when detecting polyps, cancerous growths and other issues is a boon to your intestinal health.

It might be time to consider booking an appointment with us if you are experiencing any of these symptoms,

Our Egg Harbor Township, NJ, gastroenterologists can treat a full range of conditions. We will discuss your medical history and the symptoms you are experiencing before determining which kinds of diagnostic tests to perform.
Of course, you don’t always need to be sick or feel under the weather to visit us. Once you reach 50 years old, you should be coming in for routine colonoscopies. If you have a personal or family history of intestinal polyps, ulcerative colitis, or colorectal cancer, we recommend coming in for a colonoscopy by 45 years old.
