Gastroenterology is a challenging specialty because it involves several organ systems with a variety of disease processes. The field is always advancing with new diagnostic tests, medical therapies, and procedures to help diagnosis and treat the wide variety of diseases. In gastroenterology, I have the opportunity to medically treat patients and perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
