Pediatric gastroenterology pertains to the assessment and management of gastrointestinal (GI)-related issues in children from birth to 18 years of age. Pediatric digestive disorders need to be treated and cared for by keeping a child's body and physical makeup in mind. A pediatric gastroenterologist is a pediatrician who has completed three additional years of advanced training for GI conditions in young people. They can address each aspect of a child's treatment, including diagnostic testing, treatment plans, anesthesia, and medical imaging.

The pediatric gastroenterologists at Digestive Health Associates of Texas are board-certified in pediatric gastroenterology. Many of our pediatric physicians also provide care for pediatric liver conditions and feeding issues.

My son needed to see a GI specialist and ended up needing a medical procedure. Dr. Jack An, is hands down the best pediatric specialist I have ever worked with. I couldn't be there for the initial consult, but Dr. An was open to discussing things with me over the phone. His personality and professionalism is out of this world. His ability to take a anxiety ridden situation and not only put both patient and family at ease, but take time to completely educate all parties in a way that is comprehensible to each was astounding. You did not feel rushed or invalidated. Dr. An comforted and let you know your concerns matter. During the procedure, I felt so supported by Dr. An and his team. In the surgical room, I've watched Dr. An sing and dance my little man to sleep under anesthesia. His ability to get you to laugh and release the anxiety and tension is beyond anything you would have ever thought imaginable in a doctor. My son made it through the procedure and Dr. An was there 100% with both of us. He took time to thoroughly educate me in the waiting room while going over the procedural notes and pics. It is so refreshing to see that there are professionals out there who still cherish their patients and see them as individuals. Dr. An is your ONLY choice in pediatric gastroenterology. Thank you to Jack An, M.D and his team for everything you do for your patients.
