About Northwest Gastroenterology

Our Commitment

We are committed to providing the best possible digestive care to the people of Whatcom County and adjoining areas. Our gastroenterologists are digestive disease specialists. After medical school, we completed residencies in general internal medicine before pursuing specialized fellowship training in digestive diseases. All of our partnered physicians are Board-certified in gastroenterology.

We evaluate and treat many symptoms, including swallowing disorders, heartburn, abdominal pain and gas, gastrointestinal bleeding, nausea and vomiting, anemia, constipation, diarrhea, and unexplained weight loss. Some of the many diseases we specialize in are gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD), Barrett’s esophagus, H. pylori infection, celiac disease, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, hepatitis, cirrhosis, gallbladder problems, bile duct cancers, pancreatitis, carcinoid, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, microscopic colitis, colon polyps, and colon cancer. We also screen for colon cancer via colonoscopy.

We can perform procedures to inspect most areas of the digestive system. During procedures, interventions can be performed including tissue sampling, small intestine fluid collection, balloon or tapered bougie dilation, expandable stent placement, and polyp removal.

As the only single-specialty gastroenterology clinic in Bellingham, we have an experienced team of physicians, physician assistants, advanced nurse practitioners, nurses, and support staff to provide you with exemplary care through every step of your evaluation. Our integrated electronic health record system will allow us to offer quick turnaround for labs, prescription requests, and endoscopy and consultation reports.

Committed to Northwest Washington since 1979.
