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.

- 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.

I thoroughly enjoyed my patient experience with Dr. Oliver. He has excellent bedside manner and is attentive, answering questions clearly with full explanations. I also enjoyed that he did not experiment unnecessarily with medications, tests, or procedures, and that he chose more natural alternatives and really sought to pinpoint the source of my condition. He is an excellent and approachable physician, and I would definitely recommend him.
While I think Doctor Oliver is adequate, I believe it would be wise to go to another office. His staff is very unprofessional and the office has a tendancy to change appointment times often. This latest time they have called with three seperate excuses as to why an appointment must be rescheduled. After refusing to reschedule the appointment, they simply cancelled it six hours before the appointment time. This office is simply one of the worst I have ever seen.
Please do not use, they don't care. I came into there office after dealing with stomach pain for years and general doctors not knowing what going on and recommending i go to a specialist. I paid $175 at the front window and then waited for Dr. Seif for two hours. When i finally got to see him he asked me whats going on. I replied its kinda a long story, do u want to here it, and he replied, NO, NOT REALLY. Now this is a problem that has changed my life cause i cant eat for days and the pain will bend me over. I let the front desk know and they recommended Dr. Oliver that's also in their office. I scheduled a $1200 EGT with him to see whats going on in my stomach. I didnât meet him till minutes before it was done. I tried to explain what all has been going on as they nocked me out. I woke up and never saw him again. A week later i still hadnât heard from anyone. I had to call them to get my results, and someone explained that it was inconclusive. Now remind you im still in pain. No ones called to see if im ok, to set up another appointment to figure out whats wrong, nothin. The only time i heard back from them they called to explain that i had a $440 dollar balance with them. I tried to pay asking if i did that our business will be complete. She put me on hold to ask someone, then returned explaining that now its a $900 something balance. Again they dont care about my pain, or if i get better. Luckily i have found a Dr. that is really concerned about me and seems to take my problem as a challenge to figure out.
I have seen 3 different gastro doctors so I have a good comparison to Dr. Oliver. Not only is he really professional and caring but he also has a good sense of humor and he allows you ample time to talk about yourself and your condition. Do yourself a favor if you are looking for a gastro physician and call and book any appointment with Dr. Oliver.
