    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.

Excellent Doctor - Billing Department Needs Help

Dr Walden is outstanding. He's very caring, professional, and spent as much time with me as necessary to diagnose and treat my problem (unlike some doctors). I would highly recommend him for any GI realted illness.His billing department is not so great. I paid my $12 co-pay at the end of my office visit. I received a bill for the co-pay some weeks later. I contacted Kevin in the billing detarment and he said he'd look into it and get back to me. After several weeks and no response from Kevin, I called him back. He said the debt had been cancelled and there was a zero balance. A few weeks later, I received another bill from Kevin's office for $12 and a letter from a collection agency! I could care less about the $12 and would have paid it (even though I don't owe it) had I known what a time consuming nightmare this would be. However, my principles wouldn't allow me to pay even a penny that I don't rightfully owe.
