Specialties

Dr. Victor J Navarro has the following 3 specialties

  • Hepatology

    A hepatologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas and biliary tree - the path through which bile that is secreted by the liver travels to the duodenum. These organs are responsible for many essential bodily functions, such as production of hormones and enzymes, filtering the blood, detoxifying chemicals, metabolizing drugs, and digesting and processing food.
    Common disorders that are treated by hepatologists are cirrhosis of the liver, gallstones, pancreatitis and hepatitis.

  • 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.

Two Stars

I saw Dr. Navarro once at a satellite office and now I keep getting bills from multiple agencies. Feels like I keep paying them over and over again for nothing. No diagnosis, no plan, nothing to show for it.

Searching for a new heptalogoist

I need to find a good liver doctor.l Many friends have recommened this doctor. Upon meeting him, I liked him at first and then he reminded me of a car salesman. I will proceed to visit other hospitals and then make a decision. Just don't want to be treated like a used car.

Top Doc

I have been a patient of Dr. Navarro for a while. He is extremely knowledgeable in diseases of the liver. Dr. Navarro is not only a great doctor, but he is also a great person. My family and myself have gotten to know him over time, and have found him to be very caring and very personable. I have found right from my first appointment, that he will spend as much time as necessary to explain what is happening with you, and answer any and all questions you may have, in a way that the average person can understand. Dr. Navarro accurately diagnosed my condition to a tee and precisely treated my condition. I am much better now. I also have to compliment the excellent team that he is associated with. The office staff make appointments and followups a breeze, and the coordinators make tests and procedures quick and easy. Your best care is #1 in his department. Thanks Doc

Seems to know ihis stuff. Brief and to the point. No time to answer questions. Going to search for another doctor who is just as knowledgeable in his field ans who is willing to take the time to answer questions. As a person, I believe everyone has the right to ask questions and get a decent answer.
