Diagnosis and Preventive Care

At Digestive Health Specialists, we are dedicated to the prevention and early detection of digestive diseases including colon cancer, stomach cancer, acid reflux disease and other gastroenterological conditions. Through procedures such as colonoscopy, we can  pinpoint the reasons for symptoms as well as detect diseases in the very early stages when they are far more treatable. In fact, early diagnosis through a colonoscopy is one of the best methods to stop colon cancer, the third most common cancer in the United States. Learn more about how you can Stop Colon Cancer Now.

Another way to prevent digestive diseases is to maintain good digestive health. Lifestyle habits like diet, exercise, smoking or alcohol consumption all play a role in your overall health. Read our DigestiveDR blog for tips on disease prevention and how you can stay fit and healthy.
