Specialties

Dr. Balu B Shetty has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Shetty is the most wonderful doctor. He diagnosed my problem right away and found another problem i didn't even know was there! Before seeing him I was literally throwing up ten to fifteen times a day, couldn't eat, in terrible pain and had been dismissed by other doctors. He follows up with a scope every year to make sure everything is still under control and makes sure we are clear on the results before we leave. His staff couldn't be better and always treat you with respect and care.
