Digestive Health Specialists is the best medical practice in town. I went to them for a screening colonoscopy. They have the friendlist staff. They make you feel welcome and I sensed a geniue sense of care and concern from everyone I came in contact with. They are very technologically advance with a patient portal and a really cool check in Pad!!! I would highly recommend them.

I drive from Durham, NC to go to Digestive Health Specialist. This group of Doctors, Nurses, Office staff are amazing!!!!! If you want a practice that cares and goes beyond their expected duties then you will want to give them a try. I have been going here for over 15 years and would not change a thing.
Tips & Advices
A gastroenterology clinic is a facility that provides a wide range of gastroenterological services. These services are typically geared toward the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that affect the liver, digestive tract, stomach, duodenum, gallbladder, biliary tract, pancreas, colon, and small intestine. Gastroenterology clinics also offer nutritional support for many issues that impact the digestive tract.
The national average for a new-patient office visit to a gastroenterologist is $428. However, the cost for a gastroenterologist visit can vary quite significantly, and it is dependent on the services that will be performed during the consultation. Many gastroenterologists accept insurance and Medicaid, and payments can be made using cash, credit cards, or debit cards.
The length of time required for a gastroenterologist appointment depends on the condition that is being treated. If this is your first visit, you can expect the appointment to last 30 to 60 minutes, and the gastroenterologist will use this time to gather detailed medical information about your current problems and past medical history. For returning clients, appointments typically run a bit shorter.
A colonoscopy may be performed to help your gastroenterologist diagnose causes of intestinal problems such as rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, chronic constipation, and chronic diarrhea. A colonoscopy is also used to screen patients from colon cancer, and it's often recommended that patients who are 50 and older have one done every 10 years. Your gastroenterologist might also use a colonoscopy to identify the presence of polyps.
A colonoscopy is a test that enables gastroenterologists to take a close look at the inner lining of your rectum and colon. With this test, a thin, flexible tube called a colonoscope is inserted into the anus. This tube has a light and a camera attached, and it gives doctors the chance to capture photos or video of your colon.
