The digestive system is incredibly complex and it plays many important roles in your overall health in addition to digesting the foods you consume. Symptoms of gastrointestinal disease often cause physical discomfort and it can significantly impact your lifestyle choices and overall quality of life.

Here at the clinic of Dr. Tomas Birriel MD, we understand these concerns and we can work with you to professionally diagnose and treat a wide range of gastrointestinal diseases and disorders. This includes conditions such as: acid reflux and heartburn, Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, fatty liver, gallstones, irritable bowel syndrome, as well as lactose intolerance.

Many of these gastrointestinal conditions are caused by abnormalities in the body’s natural processes. In other situations, they can also be caused by or escalated by certain unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as low-fiber diets, stress, certain medications, pregnancy, or changes in your daily routine.

Once the cause and the gastrointestinal condition has been accurately determined through thorough medical testing, Dr. Tomas Birriel will help you develop an effective, long-term treatment. This could come in the form of lifestyle alterations, prescription medications or possibly surgical intervention.

If you live in the Morgan City, Louisiana, area and you are struggling with symptoms of a gastrointestinal disease, you should call 985-384-7173 to set up a consultation with Dr. Tomas Birriel MD.
