Gastroenterologist treat diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver. Some of these include Crohn's and Colitis as well as GERD. Gastroesophageal reflux is a physical condition in which acid from the stomach flows backward up into the esophagus.
