BMC Delivers Exceptional, Coordinated Care for Children with Gastrointestinal Disorders

Our expertise includes pediatric motility disorders, liver diseases, milk allergies, celiac disease, and inflammatory bowel disease. Boston Medical Center’s Pediatric Gastroenterology Clinic—part of BMC’s Department of Pediatrics, a national leader in children’s health services—provides comprehensive, coordinated medical care to infants, children, adolescents and young adults with a wide range of gastrointestinal disorders, including:

  • Recurrent abdominal pain
  • Constipation
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Recurrent vomiting
  • Blood in stool or vomit
  • Weight loss or poor weight gain
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Celiac disease
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Hepatitis and other liver diseases
  • Gallstones
  • Jaundice in newborns

The Clinic is directed by Claudio Morera, MD, who is board-certified in pediatrics and pediatric gastroenterology. Dr. Morera also completed fellowship training in motility disorders. He is assisted by Rima Fawaz, MD, who is board-certified in pediatric gastroenterology and transplant hepatology, and Vi Goh, MD, a newly trained specialist in the field. 

Expert care. The medical team provides a full complement of evaluation, diagnostic and treatment services, and coordinates all facets of their patients’ care. As a result, the group is able to keep referring physicians completely informed about their patients’ diagnosis and treatment. In addition to its broad experience with a wide range of pediatric gastrointestinal disorders, many complex, the group offers additional expertise in the areas of pediatric motility disorders, liver disease and transplantation, and emergency medicine.

Patient-focused approach. The multicultural team is committed to delivering quality care to patients and their families in a supportive, compassionate way. 

Innovative technology and treatment options. The service offers a full range of specialized tests and diagnostic procedures, many through the Pediatric STAR Unit, which offers exceptional care, while integrating “pain-free” pediatric techniques.

Multidisciplinary collaboration. The team collaborates closely with other specialties at BMC. For patients who need multiple services, for example, the clinic works to arrange all of the patient’s appointments on the same day. In this way, all involved physicians can see the patient on the same day in one place, and treating physicians have the opportunity to consult easily with colleagues about the patient. Such coordination translates into exceptional care and convenience for patients, their families and referring physicians.

The Pediatric Gastroenterology Clinic is part of the Pediatric Specialty Group at BMC, providing high-quality, comprehensive and compassionate care to infants, children, adolescents and young adults, including: Asthma/Allergy, Cardiology, Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, Diabetes & Endocrinology, Genetics, Growth & Nutrition, Hematology, Infectious Diseases, Menstrual Disorders, Sleep Disorders and Neurology, Travel & International Health.
