Pediatric GI Testing & Diagnosis
Pinpointing the Problem
Our skilled pediatric gastroenterologists use many types of digestive diagnostic procedures to determine your child’s GI condition. They will conduct a physical exam and gather medical history information. Next, the doctor will evaluate your child’s symptoms and make recommendations to ensure an accurate diagnosis.
You should contact a doctor as soon as you suspect a gastrointestinal problem in your child. Addressing GI issues is necessary to a child’s healthy growth and development. Early treatment will help prevent a GI condition from getting worse, which improves the outlook for your child. Your family physician can refer you to our specialists.
