Our physicians and staff are dedicated to providing the highest level of care for our patients. Every physician is Board-certified in both Pediatrics and Pediatric Gastroenterology and maintains continuing education to keep abreast of the ever-changing world of Pediatric medicine.We invite you to schedule an appointment to bring your infant or child (up to 18 years of age) for his or her gastrointestinal needs.

Upper Endoscopy (or Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, EGD)
Upper Endoscopy is when the doctor uses a flexible tube with a camera and light to look at the throat, stomach and upper intestine to see what is causing stomach pain, diarrhea or other problems.
Colonscopy for Kids
A Colonoscopy is a test in which a doctor looks directly into the last part if the intestines with a narrow bendable tube mounted with a camera to find out why kids have diarrhea, bleeding and stomach pain.
Liver Biopsy
A liver biopsy is a medical procedure that allows the doctor to take a small sample of the liver tissue to examine it for problems.
pH Probe Study
A pH probe study is a test that measures if acid is coming up from the stomach into the esophagus. The test is used when the doctor suspects the patient has gastro esophageal reflux (GERD) or to determine how effective the treatment is.
Esophageal pH Probe
The esophageal pH test is an outpatient procedure performed to measure the pH or amount of acid that flows into the esophagus from the stomach during a 24-hour period.
Combined Impedance pH Probe
An impedance and pH study measures the amount of acid and non-acid gastroesophageal reflux you have. Gastroesophageal reflux is the backward flow or reflux of food and acid from the stomach into the esophagus.
Breath Testing
The hydrogen breath test is a test that uses the measurement of hydrogen in the breath to diagnose several conditions that cause gastrointestinal symptoms.
Esophageal Motility Study
An esophageal motility study (EMS) or esophageal manometry is a test to assess motor function of the Upper Esophageal Sphincter (UES), Esophageal body and Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES).
Anorectal Motility Study
Anorectal motility study is a test used to measure how well the muscles and nerves in the rectum and anus are working. This test may also be called anorectal manometry. The anus is where bowel movements (stool) pass out of the body. The rectum is the last part of the large intestine. This test will help the doctor determine the cause of your child's constipation and/or fecal incontinence (leakage of stool).
Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG)
Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy is an endoscopic medical procedure in which a tube (PEG tube) is passed into a patient's stomach through the abdominal wall, most commonly to provide a means of feeding when oral intake is not adequate.
Video Capsule Endoscopy
Capsule endoscopy is a procedure that uses a tiny wireless camera to take pictures of your digestive tract. A capsule endoscopy camera sits inside a vitamin-sized capsule that you swallow. As the capsule travels through your digestive tract, the camera takes thousands of pictures that are transmitted to a recorder you wear on a belt around your waist.
