    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.

  • 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.

Dr. Mendis Is The Best

I have Crohn's disease and have been going to Dr. Mendis for about four years. He's thorough and proactive. He has the foresight and common sense to order tests that are appropriate, even when my PCP dismissed my concerns. And the results of those tests proved him right. I took my mom to him when she needed a GI and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
No consultation following my colonoscopy and esophogeal photos

Referred 6 months ago because of discomfort and burning in upper GI. He was more interested in taking a colonoscopy. Never received any post consultation. Called twice and finally got a call back from a secretary (not even an R.N.}who told me that the Doctor said nothing to worry about -- she wasn't sure he was talking about the colon examination (which was not what I went there for) or the esphogeal problems I was referred for. I still have the problem along with a stomach problem. I have finally written to my primary care physician insisting that I be referred to another GI physician who will at least examine the photos, maybe a test, and give my some consultation.Something is still wrong if I have a cup of yogurt in the morning and I have discomfort and burning.I wouldn't refer my pet dog to this doctor.

Quits the job before patient's problem properly diagnosed.

Severed all communication with patient before telling her results of tests and gave a diagnosis which not backed up by observation during an endoscopy.
