Gastroenterology is changing rapidly in the 21st century, and at the Center for Gastrointestinal Health we provide the most up-to-date, skilled, and experienced services in this important medical specialty. Dr. Ahmed’s practice is devoted to the full range of GI diseases and conditions. These include the evaluation and treatment of heartburn, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, abnormal liver tests and precancerous or cancerous growths of the GI tract. Evaluation of such problems is usually performed first by obtaining a history and performing a physical examination, and then, if indicated, by obtaining additional blood tests, radiological studies, or by performing an endoscopic examination.
Dr. Ahmed performs the latest diagnostic testing in gastroenterology and employs modern treatment techniques to treat such cases as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, difficulty in swallowing and hepatitis. In addition, he encourages screening for colon cancer and is committed to colon cancer prevention.
