Digestive Health Solutions

Disorders affecting the digestive tract are those that affect the following organs: the mouth, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, liver, small intestines, colon, and anus. These disorders are very uncomfortable to live with. In fact, having a gastrointestinal (GI) disorder can make daily life unbearable as those affected are typically plagued with consistent bouts of vomiting, diarrhea, heartburn, and other similar problems. If your stomach or bowels act abnormally for more than a week, you should consult a doctor, as these symptoms could indicate a potentially life-threatening problem.

Our GI services at Kern Medical combine the expertise of board-certified gastroenterologists who will be by your side from screening to diagnosis to treatment. Throughout your care, our team will help you learn how to manage your disorder independently safely.
