Specialties

Dr. John L Person 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.

Pleasant, A+

I always look forward to my visits with Dr. Person. I have been his patient for at least 10 years. He is always pleasant and makes me feel better. Nursing staff I saw was just great. PSR"s are all pleasant. There is usually a wait on the telephone and if I want to talk to Dr. Person, I have to talk thru his nurse. It is a very busy office I know. It is also a long way for me to drive up to see him. Dr. Person will always have an A+ from me.
