For cardiac concerns, you trust a cardiologist. For a broken bone, you see an orthopedic surgeon. Similarly, your GI concerns are best entrusted to a GI specialist. Unlike other doctors who perform GI procedures after only weeks (or less) of training, gastroenterologists train for years on endoscopy and the problems being evaluated. With colonoscopy, for example, research shows that gastroenterologists are more likely to evaluate the entire colon and detect problems, and their patients experience fewer complications.
