Gastroenterologists (GI doctors) diagnose and treat many gut disorders, including:

  • Acid reflux

Colonoscopy can help detect colon cancer

Ask your doctor if having a minimally invasive colonoscopy is right for you. Regular screenings, starting at age 45 (or earlier if you have a family history or are African American), can help find colon cancer early when your condition is more easily treated.
