Dr. Peter R Dumas has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
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.

I've just undergone emergency procedures in the hospital, sent to the ER with this Doctor's gentle insistence. Thank God Dr. Dumas was able to perform 2 of the procedures. He's also gotten me through 3 colonoscopies, and 3 endoscopes, removing a number of polyps, and treating other conditions along the way. I'm not yet even in my fifties, but am thankful for Dr. Dumas' care, competency, and talents. He's a valuable doctor to have on you side and on your team.

I found out about Doctor Dumas on the web, and was ambivalent about getting my obligatory colonoscopy for age 50; however Doctor Dumas alleviated my all worries. He is an excellent Doctor! The office was very easy to find, located in the Health Park off Jacaranda Blvd. From the moment I walked into the office I was greeted with warmth, and only had a wait time of 5 minutes. The staff is extremely friendly, and Doctor Dumas made me feel very comfortable with his professional and pleasant demeanor. He was very thorough in discussing my medical history, and took a real interest in me as a person, not just a patient. I feel confident that Doctor Dumas did a thorough and accurate exam. While my screening went well and I am healthy for the time being, if I ever had I problem I would go back to Doctor Dumas and recommend him to my friends and family.

I was nervous about going to see at GI doctor, and I had always heard about the "dreadful" colonoscopy. But Dr. Dumas made me feel at ease. There is no fun way to prep for a colonoscopy I'm sure, but at least it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. His office staff is extremely friendly, and I would recommend Dr. Dumas to all my family and friends. Great bedside manner, gentle "family-type" guy!
