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. They work with kids spanning many ages, evaluate and treat gastrointestinal conditions and concerns, and are skilled in recognizing symptoms and signs of GI issues that affect children.

I was taken care of with great professionalism, courtesy and respect. All the staff went above and beyond to make me comfortable and attended to at all times. I asked a lot of questions and got straight forward and clear answers to all of them. I never felt rushed, and the doctor Stuart Akerman was very knowledgeable and instilled a lot of trust. I have high confidence in his treatment and skills, my experience couldn’t be better. He tells you exactly how things are and his recommendations. Very pleased.

My dad just had a colonoscopy with this doctor and wanted to give him a good review in regards to his and his staff's professionalism and attitude when answering some rather blunt questions in regards to medical concerns, overall a wonderful experience when we sit on the side of caution with my dad's post-colon cancer check-ups
