Gastroenterology deals with the function, diseases and disorders of the digestive system, including the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, gall bladder, bile ducts, liver, small intestine, colon (or large intestine), and rectum.
Consults for advanced treatment of digestive and liver disorders are available through our associated board certified gastroenterologists from Connecticut GI. A referral from your primary care practitioner (PCP) is required. Ask your PCP for information about the Connecticut GI office closest to you.
