If you have already been diagnosed with a gastrointestinal condition, we will provide individualized treatment plans to help control your symptoms. Additionally, if you’re experiencing digestive symptoms without an identified cause, we’ll perform diagnostic testing. Through our comprehensive on-site diagnostic testing services which includes minimally invasive endoscopic bowel testing, we are able to help you find relief quickly and effectively.
At Florida Medical Clinic, we are committed to making gastroenterology care as convenient as possible. Our gastroenterologists work hand-in-hand with your primary care physicians and other specialists, sharing test results and treatment plans instantaneously through our electronic health records system. And many of our gastroenterology locations offer specialty services on-site, such as antibiotic infusions and lactose breath testing. This allows you to worry less about traveling from clinic to clinic and focus on what’s most important: feeling better.
March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month
Colon cancer, also called colorectal cancer, is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and women in the US, excluding skin cancer. It typically begins as small polyps that develop inside the colon. Over time, they develop into cancer. There are often no initial symptoms which makes regular screenings a critical tool in locating and removing polyps. If cancer does develop, your doctor may recommend drug treatment, surgery, radiation or chemotherapy to control it.
