  • Hepatology

    A hepatologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas and biliary tree - the path through which bile that is secreted by the liver travels to the duodenum. These organs are responsible for many essential bodily functions, such as production of hormones and enzymes, filtering the blood, detoxifying chemicals, metabolizing drugs, and digesting and processing food.

    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.

I firmly believe that Dr. Poordad saved my wife's life. She was very sick and weren't at the office but about 15 minutes and he was making arrangements to admit her to the Transplant Unit at University Hospital. He caught the error of another physician at one of the local convenience-style med clinics. Once admitted the staff, under his guidance, at University took great care of my wife.

The best of the best. Dr. Poordad is expert in his field. He is smart, offers clear, concise explanations of procedures, and shows you that you are in good hands. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is a first rate doctor who one would expect to see in a larger market--on one of the coasts--and not here in San Antonio. We are very lucky to have him here.
