Pediatrics - Gastroenterology

The Pediatric Gastroenterology Clinic at Boston Medical Center provides comprehensive care to patients from infancy to age 22 suffering from disorders related to the gastrointestinal system. Our dynamic team of physicians, nurses, nutritionists and psychologists work closely with one another to provide a competent, highly personalized care to each patient. For children with complex medical conditions we are able to closely coordinate with other pediatric specialties so that you may be seen by multiple providers at one appointment.

The clinic activities are patient centered providing culturally sensitive care. Several of our providers are multi-lingual (English, Spanish, Mandarin, and Cantonese).

Our team is committed to provide consultation, diagnosis and treatment for a wide-range of gastrointestinal conditions, including liver, pancreatic, and nutrition disorders. Some of the most commonly treated problems include:

  • Bloody stool and/or vomit
  • Celiac Disease
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Colitis & Chron’s Disease
  • Constipation
  • Gallstones
  • Hepatitis and other liver diseases 
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) 
  • Jaundice in the newborn
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Prolonged abdominal pain 
  • Prolonged Vomiting
  • Weight loss or poor weight gain 

When your child is referred to our clinic, we promise the following:

  • A comprehensive evaluation, including a thorough history-taking and physical examination
  • A clear explanation about the potential causes of the patient’s problem and about tests which are indicated to make a diagnosis
  • Full disclosure of the risks of any procedure, and instructions for any tests that require special preparations
  • A full and complete explanation of the expected goal of treatment and any potential side-effects
  • As many follow-up visits as may be necessary to determine if the diagnosis is correct or if the treatment goal has been accomplished
