Gastroenterologists are specialized doctors who study and treat problems with the digestive organs. Gastroenterologists are internal medicine doctors who completed years of extra training to treat these problems. Most gastroenterologists see patients in the clinic as well as perform their own endoscopy (scoping) procedures.
