Consultation and follow-up

During the initial consultation, a doctor will ask about a patient’s symptoms, plan diagnostic tests and start to develop a treatment plan.


A gastroscopy is a test that looks at a patient’s gullet or stomach using a long, thin tube called an endoscope.

A flexible sigmoidoscopy is an exam that uses a tiny, flexible tube to look inside the rectum and the lower part of the large intestine or colon.
