Gastroenterology Care


Living with a digestive disorder significantly impacts your quality of life. 

At Tanner, our gastroenterology team helps you find relief from your gastrointestinal symptoms.

Tips to take control

  • Be an active member of your care team. Talk to your doctor about your condition and treatment plan. Ask any questions you have and speak up if you have concerns about medications or symptoms. And browse our Tanner Health Library to find articles, videos and other health information you need to take control of your health. 
  • Know your triggers. When symptoms flare, look for patterns in your eating or activities that could be to blame. Keep a food diary to better monitor how your food, beverages or medicines are affecting you.
  • Manage stress. Digestive disorders create an unhealthy spiral. Stress may worsen your symptoms and living with those symptoms creates more stress. It is important to find ways to relax through hobbies, breathing exercises or yoga. View our Healthy Living classes.
