Women’s Digestive Issues

Approaching care from a woman’s perspective

Women are more susceptible than men to certain gastrointestinal problems because of the physiological differences in their digestive tracts. Understanding how these differences, as well as hormonal levels, affect digestive issues is critical in our approach to care.

GANV physicians are experts in diagnosing and treating the full range of GI concerns common to women, and our medical team includes several female physicians who specialize in this area. If you are more at ease relating to a woman doctor, you’ll find their sensitive manner and skilled, knowledgeable care both comforting and reassuring.

Our woman-to-woman care also includes six highly-qualified female physician assistants and a predominantly female nursing and Endoscopy Center staff.

Our specialized care for women includes the following GI issues:

We believe patients should be well informed about their health. We take the time to explain your care, respond to your questions and alleviate your concerns. We also keep your primary physician informed with prompt, detailed reports.

If you are experiencing digestive health issues, suffering from hemorrhoids, or need a colon cancer screening, we encourage you to give us a call.
