What is a Gastroenterologist?

A Gastroenterologist is a physician with extensive training regarding the proper function and diseases of the gastrointestinal system. They are first trained as Internal Medicine physicians, then do extra training (called a fellowship) for two to 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 test to evaluate for dysfunction. Upon completing fellowship, a comprehensive examination is undertaken by the physician. This test is administered by the American Board of Internal Medicine with emphasis in Gastroenterology. If passed, the physician is then called “Board Certified”.
