Conditions We Treat
Whether it’s from overeating or drinking too much coffee, suffering from occasional acid reflux is common. However, if you experience acid reflux on a regular basis, you may have a more chronic condition that can lead to other health issues. At Circle City GI our gastroenterologists use advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to help you get relief from acid reflux and prevent future health complications. Call the office closest to you.
There’s no need to live with any digestive problem that causes you discomfort. Many people suffer with abdominal pain for months or even years before seeking medical help. The experienced team of gastroenterologists at Circle City GI offers many diagnostic tools to find and treat the root cause of your abdominal pain.
Barrett’s esophagus is a condition in which the lining of the esophagus changes, becoming more like the lining of the small intestine rather than the esophagus. This occurs in the area where the esophagus is joined to the stomach.
It is believed that the main reason that Barrett’s esophagus develops is because of chronic inflammation resulting from Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). Barrett’s esophagus is more common in people who have had GERD for a long period of time or who developed it at a young age. It is interesting that the frequency or the intensity of GERD symptoms, such as heartburn, does not affect the likelihood that someone will develop Barrett’s esophagus.
Most patients with Barrett’s esophagus will not develop cancer. In some patients, however, a precancerous change in the tissue, called dysplasia, will develop. That precancerous change is more likely to develop into esophageal cancer.
At the current time, a diagnosis of Barrett’s esophagus can only be made using endoscopy and detecting a change in the lining of the esophagus that can be confirmed by a biopsy of the tissue. The definitive diagnosis of Barrett’s esophagus requires biopsy confirmation of the change in the lining of the esophagus.
Bloating is a common complaint that may occur if you eat foods that cause gas. But if you experience bloating on a regular basis, it may be a symptom of an underlying health condition. At Circle City GI of the Inland Empire, with offices in Corona, Riverside, and Eastvale, California, the experienced team of board-certified gastroenterologists uses advanced diagnostic technology to identify the cause of your bloating and provide the right treatment.
Celiac disease is a serious digestive condition that affects the lining of your small intestines. Though celiac disease affects less than 1% of the population in the United States, most people don’t know they have it. The board-certified gastroenterologists at Circle City GI use advanced tools and technology to diagnose celiac disease.
Loose, watery stools that occur more frequently than usual.
Diarrhea is usually caused by a virus or, sometimes, contaminated food. Less frequently, it can be a sign of another disorder, such as inflammatory bowel disease or irritable bowel syndrome.
Symptoms include frequent, loose, watery stools and belly pain.
Most cases clear on their own. Some infections may need antibiotics.
Swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus that cause discomfort and bleeding.
Hemorrhoids are usually caused from straining during bowel movements, obesity, or pregnancy.
Discomfort is a common symptom, especially during bowel movements or when sitting. Other symptoms include itching and bleeding.
A high-fiber diet can be effective, along with stool softeners. In some cases, a medical procedure to remove the hemorrhoid may be needed to provide relief.

COLON CANCER SCREENING
In cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in American adults. But with more awareness and colon cancer screening, doctors can save thousands of lives every year. The highly skilled team of gastroenterologists at Circle City GI offers colon cancer screening using the “gold standard,” which is colonoscopy. A colonoscopy is an invaluable screening tool that allows your doctor to examine the lining of your colon for abnormalities. At Circle City GI in the Inland Empire, the team of expert gastroenterologists offers this routine procedure to people. If you’re due for a colonoscopy, call the nearest office to schedule an appointment.
Upper endoscopy lets your doctor examine the lining of the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract, which includes the esophagus, stomach and duodenum (first portion of the small intestine). Your doctor will use a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope, which has its own lens and light source, and will view the images on a video monitor.
