What does a gastroenterologist do at first visit?

You may be stressed about your first visit to the gastroenterologist. Instead of stressing out, we ask you to relax and learn about what may happen at your first appointment.

A gastroenterologist will begin by checking your signs and symptoms. He/she may have a detailed discussion with you about your medical history. You should expect your doctor to perform a general physical exam on you.

Followed by this, the doctor may perform certain tests or procedures to complete the diagnosis. The doctor will then make a treatment plan for you to follow.

Do gastroenterologists perform surgery?

Gastroenterologists are doctors specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive system. They may perform some procedures and tests on a patient. These tests vary depending on the patients’ symptoms.

Gastroenterologists do not perform surgeries on patients. If someone requires surgery, the specialist may recommend the patient to a surgeon.
