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.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.
- 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.

My care at Mason City Clinic with Dr. Tannous had been exceptional. He and his staff have gone above and beyond to make certain that my needs were met. They are all very friendly and helpful. Dr. Tannous is kind and genuinely seems to care about me as a patient. I have never felt like just a number with him or his staff. I truly appreciate all that they have done for me.
My visit to gastroenterology was a pleasant one. They were running ahead of schedule, so obviously, I got right in and didn't have to wait. The nurse was such a sweet lady and made sure to get all of my history in detail. Dr. Tannous seemed very knowledgeable about my symptoms and assured me I should not worry. Overall, I would give this doctor visit an A+.
Dr. Tannous is very thorough, and his staff is courteous and friendly. Dr. Tannous will take time to answer any questions I have, and he puts thought into his answers and diagnosis. I appreciate that he doesn't hurry through the consultation. I always wonder, though, where I should go after he is done...to the desk?...to the lobby?...wait in the room?...to the lab...to the waiting area?
