    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

    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.

Dr. Klein was very personable and took his time with me. His bedside manner put me at ease for what is a potentially uncomfortable procedure. All his staff were helpful and kind. He was recommended to me by inlaws, and I recommended him to my parents.

Problems with group practices

If you go to Dr. A in a group practice, you cannot go to Dr. B in the same practice. This is absurd. I tried to switch doctors because I didn't care for the first on in the group, and made an appointment with another one in the group, only to be told that since I had already gone to Dr. A, Dr. B would not see me as they won't "take" each other's patients. This is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. Be aware there are a number of doctors in this group, So you will be lucky to find one that isn't. And they don't tell you up front. Please understand this is not doctors in the same practice but doctors in the same group.
