Specialties

Dr. Douglas K Rex 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.

Rotten Dr ( if you want to call him Dr)

This Dr is inexperienced and is not very knowledgable doesn't care about the patient at all. He is just in it for the insurance and no other reason. Insurance deal only. He has the worst staff I have ever seen and I would never recommend him he doesn't even deserve a 1. I would never go to him again under no condition. He deserves a zero His staff is rude and very insensitive to your needs
