GI Bleeding Overview

  • Gastrointestinal or GI bleeding occurs commonly in the digestive tract. 
  • If bleeding occurs in the esophagus, stomach, or duodenum (initial part of the small intestine), we term it as upper GI bleeding. 
  • When bleeding occurs in the lower small intestine, large intestine, rectum, or, anus, it is the lower GI bleeding. 
  • The bleeding can range from a very small quantity of blood to hemorrhage which can be life-threatening.
  • The treatments depend on the source of bleeding where it should be treated with care.

Focused On Providing The Best Possible Treatment To Our Patients

We Have Created Our Care Practice Specially To Fit Your Needs

From trouble sleeping to work stress to anxiety to depression, we all have difficulty managing our emotions at times. It’s part of being human. And addressing these issues is a vital part of what we do as a primary care practice, because your emotional well-being is essential to your overall health and wellness.

We’ve redesigned the doctor’s office experience to fit your life, put you at ease, and treat you as a whole person. We create safe and inviting spaces,

ask meaningful questions, give you time to talk, and listen without judgment. Then we work with you on a plan to help you feel your best — whether you want to sleep better, feel calmer, worry less, or get a better handle on your mood.

To continue shedding a light on mental health issues, we teamed up with the award-winning musicians from Bear and a Banjo to create a song showing people they’re not alone. See how the project came to life in the video above — and if you’re struggling, we can help.
