Digestion and gastrointestinal (GI) problems affect children and adults alike. Pediatric GI doctors are trained to treat and diagnose sore stomachs. Common pediatric GI ailments can be related to a number of problems, including lactose intolerance, food allergies, gastroesophageal reflux disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or constipation.


There are a number of additional general nutrition problems that may also be making your child feel sick. Your child is in good hands with our Pediatric Gastroenterologists. Once diagnosed, we will work together with you to establish a treatment plan or diet to help your child feel better.
