Tummy troubles shouldn’t ruin your princess’ fairy tale. And we understand that when a princess has a queen-sized tummy ache, she needs to see a doctor as soon as possible.

Our pediatric gastroenterology team specializes in the gastrointestinal, digestive, liver and nutritional problems seen in children, from newborn through the teenage years.

Treating a comprehensive range of conditions

An experienced and specially trained team will work to provide comprehensive diagnosis and compassionate care for your child. This team consists of a physician, nurse practitioner, clinical nurse coordinator and dietician, all of whom believe that each child is unique and needs special attention to live well. We strive to put patients first using state-of-the-art clinical care and evidence-based practices combined with education for you, your child and the rest of the family.

Our team is recognized as a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of such conditions, such as:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Acid reflux/GERD
  • Celiac disease
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Pancreatitis
  • Eosinophilic esophagitis
  • Encopresis
  • Failure to thrive
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Food allergies/intolerances
  • Gastroparesis
  • Hirschsprung’s disease
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis)
  • Irritable bowel disease
  • Nausea/vomiting

We provide children the support they need from diagnosis through long-term adult care. Children with gastroenterological disorders sometimes require lifelong follow-up treatment. We offer comprehensive services and pediatric and adult specialists from multiple fields so that your child is able to receive much needed care beyond adolescence.

We offer a variety of appointment types. Learn more or call 913-588-1227 to schedule now.
