Specialties

Dr. Hagos Tekeste 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.

Excellent Doctor and a caring professional

I was having problem with my stomach, or at least I thought / felt that I was. Dr. T sat with my wife and I for twenty - thirty minutes just talking about my history, mental attitude, over all health and what our options were. We decided on a EGD and had it done at BSA. He was / is great. Won't go to any other GI Dr. as long as he is practicing.

Excellent doctor

My dad, my mother-in-law, my husband, and I have all gone to Dr. Tekeste in the past thirty years. We have never had any but the highest regard for this man as a compassionate, thorough doctor. We all have had colonoscopies according to insurance guidelines and have found him gentle and concerned. We don't at all agree with the one person who gave him a negative review.
