Newport Beach, CA Gastroenterologist Advises Patients on When to Schedule a Visit

Dr. Glenn Madokoro educates patients on the signs of when it's probably a good time to make an appointment for a checkup at his Newport Beach, CA gastroenterology practice.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A lot of people hesitate to schedule an appointment with a doctor or specialist simply because they aren't sure when symptoms are serious enough to warrant a visit. Dr. Glenn D Madokoro, MD is educating patients on when it's a good idea to visit a gastroenterologist for a checkup, test or treatment.

It's estimated that as many as 70 million people in the United States may suffer from digestive disorders. Newport Beach, CA gastroenterologist Dr. Madokoro treats and diagnoses a wide range of conditions related to the digestive system including: 

  • IBD (irritable bowel disorder)
  • Crohn's disease
  • Ulcers
  • Obstructions in the bowels and intestines
  • Pre-cancer, cancer and tumors

Gastroenterologists also help patients with issues related to the pancreas, liver and gallbladder. For instance, patients who are diagnosed with pancreatitis may be referred to this type of specialist for treatment.

Newport Beach, CA gastroenterologist Dr. Madokoro wants patients to know that the earlier they visit a gastroenterologist the better for their overall digestive health. Common signs that it's time to schedule an appointment with his office are: 

  • Chronic stomach and abdominal pain that's hard or impossible to ignore
  • Severe acid reflux or heartburn
  • Chronic diarrhea or constipation (or a mix of the two)
  • Frequent nausea and vomiting
  • Blood in stool

If it's a patient's very first time experiencing digestive irregularities, that's also a sign that it's time to visit a gastro specialist. Dr. Madokoro stresses the importance of getting it checked out as early as possible.

"I encourage patients to make an appointment with my office as soon as they experience concerning symptoms that disrupt their normal routines. Generally, the sooner an issue is caught the better for the treatment process," he says.
