Gastroenterology Consultations

The Johns Hopkins Integrative Medicine & Digestive Center is a part of Johns Hopkins Gastroenterology & Hepatology, consistently ranked one of the top three GI programs in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

We use a patient-centered approach to diagnose and manage gastrointestinal symptoms and conditions. Our immediate access to cutting-edge research provides our patients with the latest digestive disease treatments and the best conventional approaches are complemented by a broad range of services to improve your overall health and promote wellness. Nutrition is emphasized here because we know what you eat affects how you feel and how your digestive tract functions.

Our center provides a calming environment where you will be heard and not rushed through your office visit. We answer your questions and engage you as an active participant in your health care. Patient education is an integral part of our program.

In addition to consultations in digestive disease and nutrition, we provide colonoscopy screenings and other endoscopic procedures, a Women's Digestive Health program, and a broad, wellness-based approach to proper digestive health and improved quality of life.
