What to expect during the first appointment with a pediatric gastroenterologist?

The initial appointment with a pediatric gastroenterologist usually takes approximately an hour to do a full check-up of the patient's history, physical exam, assessment of probable diagnoses, and development of a treatment and therapy plan.

During the initial session, you and your child will be asked about the child's present symptoms as well as the family's medical history.

Unless advised otherwise, your child can eat normally before the appointment.

During the subsequent appointments, special tests such as X-rays or ultrasound exams may be required.

If you have an X-ray or radiological testing, such as CT scans or MRI scans, you must bring those records with you.

During the initial session, blood, urine, or stool samples may be requested.
